Ear wax is a natural by-product of the ear canal and in most of the population it falls out without any intervention. If it does build up it can cause your hearing to be reduced and a blocked feeling. Hearing loss, pain or discomfort in your ear may be signs of ear wax build-up. Ear wax can be relatively innocuous, but in some cases it can have a real impact on your quality of life.
Having problematic ear wax removed is an important part of your ear health, and overall wellbeing. According to the RNID 2.3 million people a year in the UK need their ear wax removed by a professional.
There are two methods of ear wax removal. The preferred method today is micro-suction.
At Bryce Hearing Services we recommend that an ear wax softening product, such as Earol Olive Oil Spray, is used for at least a couple of days before your appointment, this will help to soften the built up wax and will make it easier and quicker to remove. However ear drops and sprays of any type must not be used if you have a perforated eardrum!
This is where a special suction device is used to remove the earwax under a microscope. It involves a low-pressure suction probe being inserted into the ear which will remove excess wax and debris. This latest technology means your ear wax removal will be quick, safe, painless and effective.
The less common method of wax removal is irrigation, this involves using a pressurised flow of water to gently remove the build-up of wax in the ear canal.
