How To Keep A Hearing Aid From Falling Off at Hearing Direct
Hearing aids are expensive and in order to preserve them and benefit from them for a long time, special care and attention is needed. They should be carefully maintained and protected from dust, moisture and all kinds of damage, including falling off and getting lost.
How to avoid your hearing aid falling off
The problem may be due to an old or wrong sized tubing or dome. You can easily replace these with new ones and find the most suitable size and form for your ear. Silicone domes usually have a life of about three months so it is common for them to need replacement 4-6 times a year.
In addition, it is recommended that you regularly check your ears for earwax buildup as it can prevent the hearing aid fitting correctly.
Practical solutions for keeping the hearing aid in place
There are different accessories that can help you protect your hearing aid. One option is to use toupee tape, sticky pads, such as Phonak Stick N Stay or other adhesives but some of those may cause skin irritation and depending on the chemicals used may cause damage to your device.
Whatever the reason, you should take actions immediately after you sense that you do not feel comfortable or the hearing aid is too loose. Postponing may lead to a loss of the device or damage, both outcomes being costly.
