Hearing Aid Repair and Maintenance

One easy way to keep your hearing aids in good working order is by properly caring for and maintaining the devices.  The exact maintenance routine necessary for your hearing aids is dependent on the model of hearing aid, style of hearing aid, and your individual ears (e.g. if you produce a lot of wax or not). If you are having issues with your hearing aids, it is advised that you make an appointment and have our audiologist diagnose the issue.

 Below are some at home routine hearing aid care and maintenance tips.

Changing the Battery

Cleaning The Dome: The dome is the rubber tip at the end of the hearing aid that goes into your ear canal.  This is where the sound comes out of the hearing aid.  If there is wax in the dome, the hearing aid will sound like it is not working. 

To clean the dome, use the brush that came with your hearing aids (or an old toothbrush) and clean the very top and center of the dome until no wax is visible.

Changing the Dome: If cleaning the dome is not sufficient, you can take off the used dome, and put on a new one.  If you do not have domes, please make an appointment to see our audiologist.
