Deafness can improve on its own in some cases, such as if the cause is a build up of ear wax or an ear infection. However, for those who experience gradual and worsening deafness as they age, this could be permanent. If you are suffering from deafness, you might find that you benefit from a hearing aid or implant. In extreme cases of deafness in which communication is difficult, it may be useful to learn sign language.
