It is never too soon or late to protect the hearing you have today.
Loud noises can lead to hearing loss and other symptoms, such as tinnitus. If you want your hearing to last a lifetime, then you may benefit from the use of protective devices that can mitigate the damage caused by noisy environments.
Listed below are some of the options that are available in custom noise protections. Dr. Touchette is committed to helping her patients avoid hearing loss if at all possible; treating hearing loss that’s already occurred is not as good as protecting someone’s hearing for the long term.
There are many varieties of custom ear mold products for different occupations and activities. At Paradise Hearing & Balance Clinics Inc, we use Westone for our custom earpieces. You can ask more questions about protection against hearing loss and what you would need for your specific job or other activity by visiting Dr. Touchette for a consultation.
