Ear Hygiene and Wax Removal
The production of ear wax is a completely natural occurrence. However, if left to accumulate over time, ear wax can become impacted and obstruct your ear canal which can affect your hearing.
There is no proven way to prevent ear wax build up and we strongly advise against using cotton buds or inserting any objects in your ear canal. However, regular and ongoing professional maintenance of your ear canals is always recommended whether or not you experience hearing loss and especially if you are prone to repeated wax impaction or wear hearing aids. Watch this useful video on why you should never put cotton buds in your ears.
If you currently use hearing aids‘ wax accumulation can interfere with the overall quality of sound and reduce your perceived benefit. Regular and ongoing maintenance of your ear canals is always advised especially if you use hearing devices.
We remove ear wax by using a safe procedure called Micro Suction.
What is Micro Suction?
Micro-suction is a safe, comfortable and pain free technique that involves the use of a binocular microscope or loupes providing a clear and magnified view of the ear canal. This allows us to use fine low pressure suction that safely removes any ear wax obstruction.
