Conductive hearing loss may be temporary or permanent, depending on the source of the problem. Medical management can correct some cases of conductie hearing loss, while amplification may be a recommended treatment option in long-standing or permanent cases.
Sensorineural hearing losses are generally permanent and may stay stable or worsen over time. Routine hearing tests are needed to monitor the hearing loss. Amplification is the most common treatment, which includes hearing aids or cochlear implants in the most severe cases.
