Can a hearing aid entirely restore hearing?

NO, using hearing aids won’t make you hear again. Simply put, they make everything around you louder. As the amplification does not have to be so loud that WORDS are not understood, I’m sure they are helpful to persons with moderate hearing loss. The more your dB lowers, the harder it is to understand WORDS since the background noise also gets louder.

Ask about implants if your audiological evaluation test reveals only a minimal amount of word understanding. If your decibel loss is 90 dB or more, word discrimination is typically negligible; nevertheless, some people may have larger decibel losses but have poor word comprehension. Understanding and processing words is important.
