Accidents happen. We understand that regular hearing aid use causes wear and tear. When you damage your hearing aids, there’s always the option to replace them, but it’s better to attempt repairs first.
At our office, we help to troubleshoot problems and repairs before a new hearing aid is required. Our skilled staff is available to assist with even the most problematic repairs.
Common Hearing Aid Repairs
Depending on the issue you are having with your hearing aid, you may be able to solve the problem. You can try these hearing aid repairs by yourself:
- Replace the battery
- Clean your hearing aid
- Replace the wax filter
- Open and close the battery compartment
- Check your hearing aid input settings
- Remove and reinsert your hearing device
Broken Beyond Restoration
It’s possible for your device to be beyond fixing. At that point, you only have one option – replacement. Below you’ll find a few signs that it’s time to replace your hearing aid:
- Extensive damage
- If your device was already repaired several times
- If your hearing aid is more than five years old
- If your hearing health needs change
If you feel your device may be broken beyond repair, it may be best to schedule an appointment to discuss options, rather than coming to our walk-in hours. Call us at 941-745-1343 or stop into our Bradenton, Florida office serving Manatee County and Sarasota County.
