Oticon Hearing Aids

Hearing aids have had great strides through the years that Dr Kristi Mendoza has been an Audiologist.  Digital technology became available in the 1990s and now manufacturers like Oticon use wireless technology to connect hearing aids to other accessories such as mobile phones for both media and audio streaming.  This technological advancement is embedded in the current technology.  Not unlike a computer that has improved in speech and accuracy over time, there has been a doubling in processing power and decrease in chip size in the hearing aid above every year and a half.   That makes custom hearing aids smaller and more discreet. 

Newer technology hearing aids change our life experience for the better.  We are able to best help those with tinnitus with tinnitus programs that can be used alongside the hearing aid as well as in independent memories.  Audiologists have more technology to help the brain to retrieve and hear the sound quality that is lost from having hearing loss that increases over time.  The ears just pick up the sound, we need to get the information to the brain to process. 

If we treat a hearing loss early we are able to change the brain and decrease the chance of cognitive decline.  Better hearing means better communication and this leads to a better and more integrated life. I t is always best not to wait until you are missing most of the conversation around you before you seek help and start to treat your hearing loss.   There are many types of styles and colors that will fit with your lifestyle and this is something that will not only improve your hearing but bring your life back to you when you can be social like you used to be in the past. 

Hearing aids are also designed to help pediatric patients.  You may not be aware of the laws for pediatric hearing aid fittings, but this population of patients can’t legally be fit with amplification without an audiologist.  Call and find out about Oticon today.
