Most hearing professionals agree it’s a good idea to take your hearing aid out at night.
This is for many reasons – it could come out while you are sleeping and get lost in the sheets, or fall on the floor where you could step on it in the middle of the night. However, the primary reason is to allow your ear to breathe and your hearing aid to dry from moisture and bacteria. Nighttime is a good time to allow this to happen.
But there are safety risks when removing your hearing aids at night.
