At Wesson Hearing Aid Center we are on a mission to remove the stigma of wearing hearing
aids and to reveal the numerous advantages of using new hearing technology. For
us, hearing health is not just improving hearing but more about regaining the ability
to listen, and listen more comfortably.
Many people go through life being able to hear but never really learn how to listen. We want the individuals we
serve to improve their hearing in order to regain their ability to listen.
Here are a few other clear benefits of using hearing aids to improve your ability to listen.
1. Decreasing Cognitive Decline
Over the past several years many studies have been conducted and have come to
reveal that untreated hearing loss may lead to an increased risk of developing dementia
and reduced cognitive functioning. One study from the University of Pennsylvania found
that reduced hearing may even accelerate atrophy in the auditory areas of the brain
making speech understanding more difficult. We have good news though — the best
way to prevent this atrophy is to provide continued stimulus to that part of the brain.
New research supports treating hearing loss with hearing aids as a way to combat and slow down
cognitive decline —untreated hearing loss may be more of a threat to your overall health than you
2. Increasing Earning Potential
Studies from the Better Hearing Institute demonstrate that untreated hearing loss can
reduce earnings by as much as $30,000 a year. Though this seems shocking there is
good news — the very same studies found that correcting hearing loss with hearing aids
reduces the risk of decreased earnings by over 90 percent for people with mild hearing
loss, and nearly 77 percent for those with moderate-to-severe hearing loss. When you
regain the ability to actively listen at work the desired outcome is attainable—Less misunderstanding,
better communication, less stress and a 20% increase in retaining of information!
3. Decreasing Tinnitus Irritation
A listening disorder that more than 50 million Americans experience is tinnitus —high
pitch ringing, hissing and or clicking noise in the ears that can drive a person crazy. In many cases,
tinnitus is linked with some type of hearing loss. For some patients hearing aids can help reduce or
mask the annoyance of tinnitus. If you experience tinnitus and want relief from its aggravation there is
no reason to wait. The new hearing aid technology may be just the answer you’ve been “listening” for!
4. Living Better
Improving hearing health and regaining the ability to really listen to friends, family, and
loved ones is truly the way to live a better, fuller life. The Better Hearing Institute found
people who wear hearing aids to correct hearing loss, enjoy a better quality of life
than those who leave hearing loss untreated. The new hearing technology allows folks to be
more active, gain the ability to listen comfortably and more naturally, communicate better with
people at home and at work, and so much more. No wonder life is better when hearing loss is treated!
