Some people (particularly those wearing hearing aids) can benefit from regular wax removal. Ear wax can sometimes block the ear canal which can lead to pain or temporary hearing loss.
At Holt Hearing and Balance Services our staff are trained to expertly remove ear wax via three methods:
This is a painless procedure to remove wax, dead skin, foreign objects and even infection from your ears. We use a microscope to look in your ears and a very small suction tube to ‘hoover’ out the debris. Anyone can have microsuction, as long as you are able to remain still during the procedure. Microsuction is ideal for patients who are unable to safely or easily have debris removed by irrigation or instrumentation removal.
This is a painless procedure where an electric pump is used to push water into your ear, which in turn washes the ear wax out.
