Hearing aids are small electronic devices that work by amplifying sounds, which means that they make sounds louder and this way help a person with hearing loss hear better. They are worn behind the ear or inside the ear and can be taken off. Hearing aids are used for mild to moderate cases of hearing loss.
On the other hand, hearing implants come in as an ideal option in cases where hearing aids cannot help in a right way anymore. Also, hearing implants are a great solution for people with more severe cases of hearing loss and those who have problems in a certain part of the ear, that hearing aids cannot overcome. These devices are surgically implanted and present a long-term hearing solution.
So, depending on a type and severity of hearing loss, your health care professional will give you the right advice about the possible solution for your hearing problem!
