Tinnitus Education & Treatment

It’s estimated that a quarter of the population experiences tinnitus. We’re here to help our patients identify the source of their tinnitus and address symptoms to regain their quality of life.

What is tinnitus?

Tinnitus is a medical condition described as a persistent sound in one or both ears that is heard only by the affected individual. While “ringing” is one of the most common descriptions of tinnitus, it can also present as hissing, buzzing, whistling, or other sounds.

There are a variety of known causes of tinnitus, including exposure to loud sounds, certain medications, illness, and hearing loss. And, while there’s no cure, we can work with you to determine the cause of your symptoms and find a treatment option that will minimize the impact that tinnitus has on your daily life.

Tinnitus Treatment

How is tinnitus treated?

Depending on the cause and severity of your tinnitus symptoms and whether or not you’re also experiencing hearing loss, there are a number of possible options for treating tinnitus. No matter the final treatment plan, a comprehensive evaluation with an audiologist is the first step.

Hearing Aids for Tinnitus

Hearing aid technology is used for more than just hearing loss. Hearing devices have features for sound therapy to distract attention away from the tinnitus. If you are experiencing hearing loss, a hearing aid may be able to address both conditions.

Masking Devices for Tinnitus

Maskers are electronic devices that can be worn in the ear or placed nearby to produce low level sounds. Masking can help to reduce the level and awareness of tinnitus.

Stress Management for Tinnitus

When tinnitus is related to a mental health condition or stress, cognitive behavioral therapy or stress management can be beneficial.

Lyric Hearing Aids for Tinnitus

Lyric is the world’s first and only 100% invisible extended-wear hearing device and can reduce tinnitus annoyance faster and more effectively than daily wear hearing aids. Unlike other hearing aid styles, Lyric is worn 24/7 and can help manage tinnitus symptoms even while you sleep.
