If I start wearing hearing aids and wear them everyday, will I become dependent on my hearing aids?

Successful hearing aid wearers tend to wear their hearing aids for all waking hours. Once you're used to hearing sounds again, you'll probably find you don't want to be without your hearing aids.

While your unaided hearing may remain unchanged, you'll simply find you enjoy being tuned in again to what's happening around you when you wear your hearing aids. Many people who wear hearing aids say that in addition to helping you hear better, hearing aids can actually improve the quality of your life by improving your relationships, self-esteem, and self-confidence. So you see why people who wear them wouldn't want to be without them!
