1. Since condition is congenital and hearing loss
[sensorineural] is there which means nerve deafness
is present, as such cochlear implants are better than hearing aids because sensorineural hearing loss causes sounds to become distorted and even good quality hearing aids can sound distorted if the inner ear
is severely damaged.
2. A cochlear is surgically implanted - so it bypasses the damaged inner part of the ear to stimulate the hearing nerve directly and mimic your natural hearing
3. apart from SN [sensorineural] hearing loss are there any associated symptoms like: tinnitus
(ringing in the ear),and dizziness
or loss of balance.?? do you experience visual problems also?

, or cocaine, excess talking, head bath, excess exercise and sexual intercourse, avoid professional activities which involve high frequency sounds, dry fruits and bitter and astringent
