Hearing Loss can be caused by a wide variety of things. Long term exposure to loud sounds is the most common cause of hearing loss. Viruses, illnesses, certain types of medication and traumatic injury can also cause hearing loss. There are also hereditary factors that can come into play, so it’s important to get your hearing tested. Schedule an appointment with one of our Maine offices today.
