wHY YOU SHOULD HAVE YOUR EAR WAX CLEANED REGULARLY?
You can have too much earwax, even though it is your ears’ natural way of keeping themselves clean. Excessive earwax can accumulate and harden, blocking the ears and preventing healthy hearing. If left untreated, it can also result in ear infections and discomfort.
If you observe any of the following, you probably have too much wax built up, thus you should have your ears cleaned by a hearing care specialist:
- Unheard or Muted Sounds
- Wax on your pillow
- An Earache or sense fullness in your ear
- An itch in the ear
Wasan Jajou 12. April, 2022. If you are considering getting a professional ear wax cleaning or hearing test, I HIGHLY recommend Evear Hearing! My mom experienced ear pain recently, that was getting progressively worse. I suggested getting a proper ear wax cleaning. After a quick search, Evear came up. I called & Steve, the owner picked up. He was so patient & explained all the details. He was funny and friendly & took his time. The price seemed very reasonable! We booked an appointment with Vittoria at the Mississauga clinic by the water.
As soon as we arrived, we loved the location: big, bright & clean. Vittoria was so lovely, kind & patient. She explained every step to us & began cleaning my mom's ear. She constantly checked how the water temp & pressure was & if my mom was ok to proceed. We decided we'd come back for another appointment to clean out the rest of the wax, as there was some resistance. We scheduled again & once again Vittoria was so lovely. This time the remainder of the wax was removed. With the state of the art tech there, we were able to see the inner ear & what was stuck there. It was also very satisfying to see what was being cleaned out of the ear! Thank God it was just some (slightly resistant) wax that had hardened on top of a more liquidy wax, and nothing more serious.
We are now headed back for my mom's ear test, this time to the Brampton location. This is all part of the initial appointment we paid for & were not charged further at the last appt to remove the remaining wax, or for today's hearing test. Vittoria was just wise to see it needed to be approached in stages. I really appreciate how places treat me, but more so how they treat my family. You are in great hands here, as they are ethical & not trying to take advantage.
This place is so good, I made an appt for my uncle!
I can't say enough good things! Vittoria was super patient on the phone last week, when I booked today's appt & went above and beyond to accommodate my mom.
Thank you Steve, Vittoria & Evear Hearing. I'll continue to spread the good news! Anton Nguyen 23. March, 2022. Booking my appointment was very simple, and the staff was fantastic! Noha Masoud 15. March, 2022. I was able to easily book my appointment and fill the forms online before coming in. Vittoria Curtis was great in explaining everything and helped me get rid of the wax in my ears. Also, it was so cool being able to see inside my ears using their video otoscope. Highly recommend this place if you are looking for ear wax removal! Branislav Kovacik 2. March, 2022. I’ve had the pleasure to have my ears checked by Vittoria at the Mississauga location and I can’t even express how extremely satisfied I am! I was very anxious coming in due to perforated ear drum in the past, but she was very gentle and knowledgeable, addressing and taking all my concerns into consideration. I would not go anywhere else, so lucky I found and chose this place. Big thank you! Bradon Levalds 23. February, 2022. What an incredible experience coming here! From the moment I walked in and was greeted by the team, I felt at ease. The actual procedure itself was so simple and straightforward and they made me feel as comfortable as I could have been. Will definitely be coming back here! Rick Falco 16. February, 2022. Very welcoming and friendly staff. They are accommodating to the needs clients and flexible with payment terms. Excellent and professional service 👏. E Chea 11. February, 2022. The quality of care I received today was beyond exceptional. Vittoria was outstanding and made a huge difference with my painful ears. I would definitely recommend their services. Jay Goldstein 5. February, 2022. Was a wonderful experience getting the EXCESSIVE wax removed from my ears. The team was very friendly and provided lots of valuable advice on preventing wax build up in the future. I will definitely be going back if needed. Now I'm pain free! Thanks Dan55 Ellis 4. January, 2022. Treatment was highest standards and had successful results restoring my hearing back to normal Highly recommend this for every one and will plan a return visit
It usually takes about 45 to 60 minutes. We ask you about your medical history and noise problems you are facing to determine possible cause of hearing loss. It takes about 20 minutes for comprehensive audiological assessment and after that we explain you the results.
To determine the device cost we consider a few factors like level of hearing loss, size/shape of ear canal, personal hearing needs/concerns and finances. The price can range from 1000$ for the most advance hearing device. The device is available in any size for 5 level of technology. The best hearing device for you will be determined by your audiologist after assessment and consultation with you.
After I have received my hearing devices, how long do I have to decide whether or not they are suitable for me?
It takes a while to get used to the hearing device. Your ear and brain adapts to the hearing differently. The device is fine-tuned based on your routine and listening situations. We offer a 30 days trial period.
Technological advancement has completely changed today’s hearing devices. The technology can sense the difference between sounds and noises in noisy situations such as crowded places.
Even though the natural hearing cannot be replaced, people with moderate hearing loss can hear better in noisy situations than normal people due to the advance technology. The hearing devices are customised according to your needs.
The device has a computerised chip which analyses your listening environment when you are using them.
Open-fit hearing devices are the most comfortable devices. They have changed perception and acceptance of hearing devices. They are better than traditional hearing devices.
Most people don’t even feel them inside their ear after a few hours.
The sounds you will listen will feel more natural and not mechanical. To determine if theses devices are suitable for you an audiological assessment is done.
It is best to use two hearing devices when there is enough hearing loss in both ears. About 90% of the patients need hearing devices for both ears.
Our tests will determine how much more clearly you could hear if you had two ears as compared to one. Cost is the main reason why people don’t use two hearing aids. There is a reason why we are born with two ears.
Because we have two ears, we can localise sounds and determine their source. To distinguish between different sounds and those that resemble speech, the brain also needs data from both ears. One hearing aid user frequently experiences faster loss of speech recognition in the unaided ear if it is not activated. One ear simply cannot function as well as two ears.
Understand that there are NO hearing aids that can entirely block out background sounds. Certain noises must be heard for safety purposes (i.e. a car zooming by as you start to walk across the street). No technology is intelligent enough to know what you want and don’t want to hear.
However, hearing aids with directional microphones and hearing aids with advanced sound processing skills can both significantly enhance the ability to hear in noisy environments. Hearing aids with directional microphones will help you concentrate on noises that are four to five feet in front of you by reducing the amount of sound that you actually hear behind you.
Consider this in a restaurant or social setting. Even with normal hearing, we must face the person we are speaking to in noisy environments in order to hear them. Digital hearing aids with advanced sound processing are improving rapidly their ability to distinguish between speech-like sounds and other noises. The clarity of speech-like sounds has been improved by increased enhancement.
By receiving sounds and sending them to the Auditory Cortex of your brain via the hearing branch of the VIIIth cranial nerve, your ears serve as messengers for your brain. An essential part of cognition, the auditory cortex is crucial for memory and language understanding.
Early-stage Alzheimer’s/dementia has been connected to the Auditory Cortex Is diminished function.
