Treatment of hearing loss depends on the cause and severity of the problem. The first step of treatment usually involves a systematic diagnosis of the cause and nature of hearing loss. After determining the cause, the ENT doctor may decide upon the course of treatment.
One of the most common hearing loss causes is accumulation of wax in the ear. This can be resolved by manual extraction of the wax from the ear, however, any such procedure should only be carried out by a well-trained doctor in clean hygienic conditions.
For any normal infection of the ear that is interfering with hearing, the doctor may prescribe hearing loss drugs such as antibiotics. Surgery is recommended in extreme cases of injury or repeated infections to the ear. It usually involves insertion of small tubes to drain the ear.
If the hearing loss is due to damage to the inner ear, a hearing aid may be recommended by the doctor. A hearing aid is an external device that can be used by the patient to improve the comprehension of sound reaching the ear. They direct the sound into the ear canal after electronically amplifying the signals and masking any interferences.
Another viable alternative to treatment of hearing loss is ear implants. These implants are surgically inserted into the part of the ear that requires correction. Auditory brain stem implant is a new line of treatment offered to a limited number of patients with a severe hearing loss.
Most treatments are successful in restoring normal hearing in the long run.
