Ear Canal Inspections from Mission Hearing Aid Center
Whether determining the cause of your hearing loss or some other ailment in your ear, ear canal inspections are a must. Ear canal inspections, otherwise known as otoscopic examinations, inspect the different part of your ear canal to uncover underlying issues you may not know about. These underlying issues may be causing some form of hearing loss or other complication that may affect your health. Our ears are important, and we want to make sure they’re in good shape so we can continue doing the things we love in life.
At Mission Hearing Aid Center, we can help you do all that and more through ear canal inspections.
What Does the Inspection Entail?
During an ear canal inspection, a hearing specialist will inspect all parts of your ear, informally known as the outer, middle, and inner ear. Each part of the ear is significant in helping us hear and for other things, such as maintaining our balance as we walk, run, stand, and even sit up. During the inspection, our hearing specialist will look into your ear using a specialized magnifying device. This will allow us to get a better view of your inner ear, including your tympanic membrane. We’ll examine the tympanic membrane, one of the most important parts of your ear, for color and consistency. We’ll also look for other issues that may be causing your hearing loss or may be indications of something more serious happening in your ear and beyond, including infections and tumors.
Why Are Ear Canal Inspections So Important?
Ear canal inspections are a vital part of staying healthy. They help to uncover underlying conditions we might not know we have and can help us get to the root cause of any hearing loss we may be experiencing.
Do I Need an Ear Canal Inspection Before I Get Hearing Aids?
If you’re in need of hearing aids, a thorough hearing evaluation is needed. However, if you choose to purchase your hearing aids online or over the counter, you won’t be required to undergo one, which can be detrimental to your health. We recommend getting your hearing aids through a hearing specialist who can not only provide you with high-quality hearing aids but also help you determine the cause of your hearing loss and the best hearing aids for your needs.
At Mission Hearing Aid Center, we can help you with all of that and more!
