Cutting-Edge Hearing Aids for Patients in Bowie, Annapolis, and Surrounding Areas of Maryland
Hearing loss is a disorder that can impact many aspects of an individual’s life – family, work, social events and personal relationships. With successful treatment, patients experience not only better hearing and a clearer understanding of speech, but they can also enjoy an enhanced quality of life.
According to the Better Hearing Institute, many patients receiving treatment with hearing aids show improvement in their interpersonal relationships and social lives. They also experience less frustration, anger, anxiety, and fatigue because they have far fewer communication difficulties. And better hearing helps people to stay independent and self-sufficient. At the Bowie Hearing Center, we are dedicated to improving lives by providing quality hearing aids backed up by the best in professional support and services to patients from Bowie, Annapolis, and surrounding areas of Maryland..

Digital Hearing Aids
Digital hearing aids have revolutionized the way people with hearing loss hear sound. They are the preferred type of hearing aid technology worn by almost all patients today. Far superior to their previous analog counterparts, digital hearing aids contain microchips that convert sound into digital code and distinguish between speech and noise. Through this process and the use of directional microphone technology, digital hearing aids help suppress background noise to allow patients to hear and understand speech more easily, even in places like restaurants and group events. The amplification from digital hearing aids is more finely tuned to the pattern of the wearer’s hearing loss. And digital feedback suppression has virtually eliminated the whistling that sometimes would occur with older analog hearing aids.
Our audiology team is proud to feature a wide selection of basic to advanced technology digital hearing aids to meet the needs of each individual patient.

Adjusting to Your New Hearing Aids
Although hearing improves significantly the moment an aid is put in the ear, adjusting to hearing aids can be a gradual process. Patients may find that their own voices sound louder. With the hearing aids, patients learn to become re-accustomed to various sounds that they may have lost the ability to hear. We are here to help you learn to use the hearing aids and adapt to them through regular follow-up visits during your 45 day hearing aid trial period. Before long, you will realize the full benefits of your new hearing aids if you use them consistently and follow the advice of your audiologist.
Are Two Hearing Aids Better Than One?
Two hearing aids are almost always better than one if the hearing loss is about the same in both ears. Worn together, the hearing aids restore stereophonic hearing which makes conversational speech clearer, even when background noise is present. The brain needs input from both ears in order to separate speech from unwanted noise. Wearing two hearing aids also allows the wearer to localize sounds better. And wearing two hearing aids helps to prevent a condition known as auditory deprivation in which the brain gradually loses ability to process information from the unaided ear due to lack of sound stimulation.
