Our professional earwax removal services
In most cases, earwax works its way out on its own, and there is no need to remove it. However, if earwax is blocking your ear canal and causing hearing loss, it may require removal using one of the following methods:
Microsuction is the safest and quickest method of earwax removal. This method is also used to safely remove foreign bodies present in the ear canal.
"Wax is basically a self-cleaning service for our ears, and it protects the sensitive ear canal from things like bacteria and debris (which can cause infections). Never put anything in your ear yourself, and, if you are bothered by the feeling of a blockage, just see your GP or a hearing specialist," advises Yvonne Doyle, Audiologist of the Year, Hidden Hearing.
2. Ear Irrigation
Ear irrigation is a procedure where water (at body temperature) is injected into the ear by the irrigator, which controls the water pressure, to ensure that the ear cannot be damaged. Under the gentle force of the water, the earwax is softened and dislodged, and the wax is carried out of the ear.
As well as being fully qualified, our audiologists receive additional specialist training in both ear Irrigation and "dry mopping" (which keeps the discharging ear dry) from Aston University Birmingham & Newcastle University.
