EAR WAX REMOVAL
Earwax removal is critical for preventing hearing loss. Earwax plays an important role in keeping your ear clear of dust and other foreign debris that can affect your eardrum. Normally your earwax washes out on its own, but it can become impacted and cause hearing loss or ear infections. This makes regularly cleaning your ears an important part of your overall hearing health.
Often patients come in for evaluation, and their ear canals are obstructed with ear wax, making it difficult for them to hear. We have been trained in a variety of methods for safe ear wax removal and have been offering this service for many years. We use the least invasive procedure first, to get the best results, and our patients often tell us that our process is more comfortable than they have received in other offices. Some types of ear wax blockage is preventable by treating the ear or using a home program. We work with each patient to make the best recommendation for what should be done at home, and how often they may need to return for ear wax maintenance.
How to Get Wax Out of Your Ear
Unfortunately, many common remedies for cleaning your ears, such as using cotton swabs, can actually make the problem worse. Putting anything in your ear canal runs the risk of pushing the earwax further back and injuring your eardrum. Over-the-counter drops soften the wax, but can make the clogged sensation worse and are often ineffective at removing impacted wax.
Professional earwax removal is fast and thorough. We can safely clean your ears of debris and built-up wax and check to make sure there aren’t any other issues affecting your hearing.
