Hearing Tests in Snellville, GA

Hearing loss affects more than just your ability to hear, it affects your whole life. At The Audiology Center of Snellville, we offer comprehensive hearing tests that allow us to diagnose hearing loss and help you find the right management plan.

A hearing test is easy and does not take long. You will sit inside a soundproof booth with a pair of headphones on and listen for a series of sounds. These sounds will vary in volume, pitch, and frequency. We will also perform a speech recognition test to determine if hearing loss has affected your ability to hear certain words in quiet and in noise.

Our audiologist will go over the results of your hearing test with you which are recorded on an audiogram.

Hearing Aid Fittings

In order to perform their best, hearing aids need to be fit and programmed to your exact hearing needs. Our hearing specialist is an expert in hearing aid technology and can ensure your devices are a perfect fit for you. First your hearing aids will be fit to your exact ear shape so they sit comfortably yet securely on/around your ear. Hearing aids should not feel uncomfortable so it is important that they fit properly.

Once your devices are fit to you, then they will need to be programmed. Using the results of your audiogram, our audiologist will expertly program your hearing aids to provide you with the right amount of amplification and clarity. We encourage you to come back in for a follow-up appointment so we can fine-tune your hearing aids to ensure they are the right match for you.

Hearing Aid Repairs

Although you take care of your hearing aids, time can take a toll on all technology, and it’s possible your devices may need a repair. If you are experiencing a problem with one or both of your hearing aids, try these quick fixes first:

If these tips don’t resolve your issue, then you should bring your devices in for servicing. The Audiology Center of Snellville can expertly repair your hearing aids, often in the same day. If your hearing aids have suffered more severe damage, then we may need to send them to the manufacturer to be fixed.

Hearing Protection

Exposure to noise that exceeds 85 decibels (the safe threshold for sound) can significantly increase your risk of hearing loss or exacerbate an existing hearing impairment. To protect your ears from loud noise exposure, it’s important to wear the correct hearing protection.

Our hearing clinic offers a wide range of earplugs, earmolds, and in-ear monitors that are custom fit to your unique ear shape. Custom fit hearing protection ensures your ears are protected from loud sounds while still allowing you to hear the soft sounds around you. Whether you work in an occupation where noise is hazardous or you enjoy activities where it can get loud, hearing protection is a must for you!

Earwax Management

Medically known as cerumen, earwax is an indicator of healthy ears. Earwax acts as a natural cleaning agent of the ear, pushing bacteria and other debris out of the ear canal. Sometimes though, earwax doesn’t work itself out of the ear canal and instead becomes impacted. When this occurs, it can cause discomfort, itchiness, a feeling of clogged ears, and even muffled hearing.

At The Audiology Center of Snellville, our audiologist can safely and effectively remove impacted earwax, so you can get back to hearing your best again. You should never try to remove cerumen on your own, as this can cause more issues than good. Cotton swabs can push earwax further into the ear canal and harm the delicate structures of the middle ear. If your ears are bothering you due to earwax accumulation, contact us for an appointment.

Tinnitus Treatment

Tinnitus, also known as ringing in the ears, affects millions of people around the world – over 50 million of which are Americans. Tinnitus is described as hearing a buzzing, humming, ringing, whooshing, or whistling sound in the head when no external sounds are present. The symptoms of tinnitus can range greatly and sometimes it is no concern. However, some people experience tinnitus so severe it affects their sleep, concertation, and quality of life.

If you have bothersome tinnitus, the experts at The Audiology Center of Snellville can help. We can perform a tinnitus test alongside a hearing exam to determine what caused your tinnitus and find a management plan. Tinnitus masking hearing aids can help you experience relief. With these devices, you can play soothing soundscapes in your ears that will distract your brain from annoying tinnitus. Although hearing aids won’t stop ringing in the ears completely, they can greatly help.
