WAX REMOVAL

Everybody’s ears produce wax and it is the body’s natural way of helping to keep the ears clean and healthy. However, this wax can sometimes become hard and impacted which can cause discomfort and may even start to affect your hearing levels.

Is excessive ear wax effecting your hearing and are you struggling to get it removed?

I am now able to offer a wax removal service using a specialist suction machine that uses air suction rather than water for cleaning the ears. This means the wax can be carefully removed with less discomfort and minimal risk of complications.

Micro-suction is the safest and most effective method of ear wax removal. It’s even safe for problem ears such as:

·         Perforations 

·         Mastoid cavities (surgical created cavity)

·         Otitis externa (swimmer’s ear)

·         Tinnitus (ringing, buzzing)

At your appointment we will assess the level of wax using video otoscopy and where possible remove it straight away. In some cases where the wax is too hard or has become impacted, we may have to ask you to soften the wax before we are able to remove it using some drops of olive or almond olive for a few days.
