Your hearing is incredibly important for your health, wellbeing, and overall quality of life, so when ear problems arise that cause trouble hearing or issues with balance, we understand just how concerning this can be. Let Dr. Metts and the team at North Texas Ear Nose & Throat provide you or your child with the proper medical care needed to treat ear problems.
Some of the most common ear problems we treat include:
- Ear infections (particularly common in babies and young children)
- Tinnitus, or ringing in the ears
- Meniere’s disease, which causes dizziness due to fluid buildup in the ear
- Barotrauma, or injury to the ear due to barometric pressure changes (e.g. flying in an airplane; diving)
The Hearing Problems We Treat
Of course, the conditions listed above are only the most common ear problems that we treat in children and adults. Many people also come into our practice because they’ve noticed changes in hearing. Hearing loss is something that can happen to anyone, regardless of age, and it’s important to find out what’s impacting your hearing so we can treat it right away. Everything from simple wax buildup to damage to the nerves of the inner ear can lead to hearing loss, and Dr. Metts and his team can easily determine through simple testing and a physical exam what’s causing you or your child’s ear problems.
Treating Patients of All Ages
When it comes to ear problems, we know that you need a proper evaluation from a medical expert. In this case, an ENT doctor is going to be the best specialist for the job. After all, Dr. Metts specializes in diagnosing and treating conditions and injuries that impact the ears, nose, and throat. We have the tools to be able to provide an accurate and swift diagnosis so that we can get you feeling better quickly. Dr. Metts also provides care to patients of all ages. After all, many infants and children deal with ear infections in the first three years of life, and our team can address these recurring or severe ear infections to prevent complications. If your child is dealing with recurring ear infections, our team is here to help.

We offer a wide range of treatment options to meet your needs, from simply removing earwax buildup and prescribing antibiotics to treating ear infections and specialized therapies designed to correct everything from balance issues to tinnitus.
