Ear Wax Removal

Ear wax removal is the process of safely and effectively removing excess or impacted earwax from the ear canal. Earwax is a natural substance produced by the ear glands to help protect the ear canal and trap debris, dust, and foreign particles.

However, an excessive buildup of earwax, often referred to as earwax blockage, is something we all need to be cautious of. Having an excessive amount of earwax buildup can result in a number of different problems, some of which include: hearing loss, earache, tinnitus, dizziness, ear infections and eardrum injury. That’s why finding out how to remove earwax is vital for your ear’s health – which is where we come in.

Our team can offer you effective methods for the removal of earwax. We are trained in the specialised earwax removal techniques of ear syringing, manual extraction, and microsuction. All of our audiologists are trained to provide safe earwax removal methods to all their patients, ensuring that your overall health and well-being is taken into account. These treatments are usually painless and the type of treatment you have will depend on your condition.

Removal Treatments

The earwax removal treatments that we offer include:

This is a safe and effective method used by audiologists, to remove excess or impacted earwax from the ear canal. It involves using a microscope and a specialised suction device to gently and precisely remove earwax without the use of water or irrigation. Earwax Microsuction is considered one of the preferred methods for earwax removal, especially when other methods like irrigation might not be suitable.

Water Irrigation:
This particular method is used to remove excess or impacted earwax from the ear canal by gently flushing it out with water. Water irrigation can be an effective and safe way to remove earwax, but it should be done carefully to avoid causing any damage to the ear canal or eardrum.

Manual Removal:
Manual earwax removal, also known as mechanical removal, is a method used by healthcare professionals to carefully and directly remove excess or impacted earwax from the ear canal using specialised tools. This method involves skilled techniques to ensure safe and effective removal without causing harm to the ear canal or eardrum.

It is important to remember that attempting to remove earwax at home using cotton swabs, hairpins, or other objects is strongly discouraged, as it can push the wax deeper into the ear canal and potentially cause injury or damage to the ear.

That’s why if you’re experiencing symptoms of excessive earwax buildup or discomfort, we recommend that you consult a member of our team for a proper evaluation. They will then be able to offer you guidance on the best earwax removal method for you. When any of the above methods are performed, our qualified specialists will show you your ears both before and after the procedure using video otoscopy (camera), so you can see the difference the procedure has made.
