Many people suffer from tinnitus, however it affects everyone differently. Some people hear ringing, others crickets, others music, and some hearing something else. It can be a background sound that does not bother a person to a sound that overtakes every aspect of their life. It can be caused of hearing loss, noise exposure, medications, or a number of other things.
Because of these differences, it is essential to have your tinnitus evaluated if it is bothersome. During the evaluation, we will review your hearing test and discuss your medical history in more detail. Additionally, we may do further testing to determine the pitch and loudness of your tinnitus.
Treatment options can range from using every day sounds to medication management, dentistry to masking devices. Since everyone’s tinnitus has different causes, everyone requires a different treatment.
