After the initial hearing aid fitting process is complete, we encourage our patients to follow a regular and proactive maintenance routine. This routine consists of quarterly (every 3-4 months) hearing aid clean and check appointments. At this appointment, we check all components of your hearing aids, clean them thoroughly, remove any excess moisture, and replace all non-electronic parts of the devices. We also listen to the hearing aids to make sure they sound clear and at the appropriate volume. Following this regular schedule keeps the hearing aids functioning properly and lasting longer over time.
In addition to routine clean and check appointments, we also recommend that our patients have their hearing tests every 1-2 years or whenever there has been a perceived change in hearing.
