Just as your car needs oil changes and routine servicing, hearing aids need of routine serving and maintenance. This is typically recommended every 6-12 months. At these appointments, your hearing aids will be listened to and checked over to make sure that they are in proper working order. Sometimes if your hearing aids aren’t functioning properly, parts will need to be replaced, which can often be done same-day at your appointment. Though not as common, it is not unusual for hearing aids to be sent back to the manufacturer for repairs that may be related to the internal circuit.
