One the best parts about Ponto users, is their creativity and willingness to share their experiences with the community. So, we asked you for your best tips for new Ponto users, and here were three of our favorites!
1. Be Patient
You might not realize it, but it takes a little time for Ponto users—and their friends and family—to adjust to all the new sounds they’re hearing. Clarice Henning Dalton reminds us to be patient as adjust to life filled with sounds. Great insight, thanks Clarice!
2. Give Yourself Reminders
While it may take some time for you to adjust to all the wonderful new sounds you’re hearing, one thing many Ponto users have appreciated, is how quickly you forget you’re even wearing one! This great, until, as Violetta E. Navas pointed out, you forget to take it off before hitting the shower! She suggests sticking up a reminder in the bathroom—great idea! Thanks Violetta!
3. Keep It Clean
It probably goes without saying it’s important to keep your Ponto and the abutment site clean, but actually doing this may feel a bit awkward at first. Lyn Kolstern offers up a simple approach, using everyday cotton swabs to clean around the abutment, and to apply ointment in just the right spots. We love the simple approaches with everyday household items! Thanks Lyn!
