Types of Loss
Hearing loss is the result of sound signals not reaching the brain. There are two main types of hearing loss, depending on where the problem lies.
Sensorineural hearing loss is caused by damage to the sensitive hair cells inside the ear or damage to the auditory nerve.
Conductive hearing loss happens when sounds are unable to pass from your outer ear to your inner ear, often because of a blockage such as earwax or glue ear.
Mixed hearing loss is a combination of both conductive and sensorineural hearing loss. This type of hearing loss may be treated most successfully with a combination of a hearing device and medical assistance.
