An Overview of the SoundBite Treatment Process
To begin your SoundBite treatment process, contact a SoundBite Ear, Nose, & Throat (ENT) physician. The treatment process involves three simple steps explained below:
1) Visit a SoundBite Physician/Audiologist for Evaluation
Your path to better hearing begins with a visit to a SoundBite Ear, Nose, & Throat doctor. This physician can also be known as an ENT doctor, otolaryngologist, or otologist, and specializes in hearing loss treatment for conditions such as single sided deafness and Conductive Hearing Loss. Your initial visit will begin with an evaluation to determine if SoundBite Hearing System is right for you. This visit will likely include a hearing exam and discussion of your unique hearing needs. If SoundBite is prescribed, you will be referred to a SoundBite Partner Dentist (who works in partnership with your physician) for a dental screening and impression of your teeth.
2) Visit a SoundBite Partner Dentist
Your SoundBite Partner Dentist will perform a routine dental health screening to ensure you are in good oral health. Once your dentist determines that you are well-suited for SoundBite, a simple, partial dental impression will be taken. The dental impression will then be sent to Sonitus Medical where a custom made hearing device will be created just for you.
From your own, unique dental impression, Sonitus Medical will make an ITM (in-the-mouth) hearing device. The device fits around the upper teeth – either the left side or the right – and will fit comfortably and securely as it is molded to the unique specifications of your teeth and mouth.
Creating your custom device will take about 2 weeks.
3) Return to Your Audiologist and Enjoy a New World of Sound
When your SoundBite system – including the custom ITM device – is ready, it is now time to return to your ENT's office for a personalized appointment that will confidently prepare you for a new world of sound.
Typically, you will be seen by your ENT's in-office audiologist. The audiologist is trained to program, adjust, and teach you about SoundBite Hearing System so you'll be ready to snap it on and go!
During this appointment your audiologist will:
- Program your device
- Provide you with the full SoundBite system (including the system charger and carrying case)
- Show you how to charge the components and clean the device
- Answer any questions you may have about SoundBite
Treatment with SoundBite is simple and easy. You are now ready to start enjoying the benefits of SoundBite Hearing System and rejoin the conversation of life!
