Sensorineural & Conductive
Sensorineural hearing loss can be treated with hearing aids or cochlear implants. Conductive hearing loss may be treated by removing or alleviating the blockage that is causing it; if this does not solve the problem, hearing aids (or bone-anchored hearing aids) can be used.
For mixed hearing loss, it is a good idea to first treat the conductive hearing loss. However, the underlying sensorineural hearing loss will remain, which can then be treated with hearing aids (or bone-anchored hearing aids).
Sudden Sensorineural Hearing Loss
Sudden sensorineural hearing loss can be treated with corticosteroids via intratympanic injection or oral steroids. They work by reducing inflammation, decreasing swelling, and helping the body fight illness. If the ear does not respond to treatment, you may need hearing aids or cochlear implants.
Regardless of the type of hearing loss, hearing aids and cochlear implants will not return your hearing back to normal. There will still be some level of difficulty hearing, especially in complex listening situations (places with loud backgrounds or on the telephone).
