There are various reasons for a hearing loss, such as bone growth, tumors, blockages, and injury. The main cause of the loss can be determined by performing hearing tests like tympanometry. With a tympanometry screening at The Hearing Centre, you will know the main cause of your hearing loss as well as get recommendations for the right hearing aids you will need.
During the test, the audiologist can help determine if there is fluid in the middle ear, find out if there are any kind of damage caused to the eardrum or if there is a buildup of wax.
Performing the tympanometry test is simple – air is pushed into the ear canal under pressure, making the eardrum move back and forth, which is exactly what happens to it when you are hearing something loud. The test will let you know the exact mobility of the eardrum, with the reports of the test given in the form of tympanograms graphs.
