Your ear is a delicate structure and should not be treated by anyone who does not have a thorough training in Audiology – there are now many people offering this service who have done just a weekend course or, worse still, only an online reference.

Why do I have a build up of ear wax?

You can’t prevent ear wax. It’s there to protect your ears from dirt and germs. Nevertheless, there are several reasons why you might get a build-up of earwax:

  • you just have more wax in your ears (some people naturally do).
  • you have hairy or narrow canals (the tubes that link the eardrum and outer ear).
  • your age – wax gets harder and more difficult to fall out.
  • hearing aids, earplugs, and other things you place within your ear might be pushing the wax further in.

Let’s get you started on the road to better hearing so call us now on 01291 650312

several symptoms might indicate earwax:

  • earache, difficulty hearing
  • itchiness
  • dizziness
  • an ear infection
  • sounds such as high-pitched tones coming from inside the ear (tinnitus)


The build-up of ear wax

Ear wax may fall out of your ear over time, just through a natural process, but you should never attempt to remove it by inserting anything into your ear – especially cotton buds.

Regular ear wax softening products may induce ear wax to come out, but this can take some time and can actually make the situation worse – check the ingredients before you start or, better still, call us for free and ask our advice. Call us if it is irritating and/or painful because you would like immediate relief.

The best solution

We remove ear wax by micro-suction. Micro suction is the safest and best technique to treat impacted ear wax. It can be used on sensitive ears and is also an excellent treatment for existing hearing aid users.


An innovative wax-removal technique

It is an innovative wax-removal technique that uses binocular vision complete with high-intensity light (which allows depth perception and magnification) to look straight into the ear canal. It employs a very fine sterile suction device at safe, low pressure to remove the wax build-up.

Thus, the micro suction technique for ear wax removal means that we can always see precisely what we are doing and can avoid touching the skin on the sides of the ear canal, which makes the process a lot more comfortable, even if we occasionally need to use other instruments or techniques to remove hard wax.

Compared to traditional forms of wax removal such as ear drops and irrigation or syringing, micro suction is safer, quicker, generally better tolerated and more effective and can usually be done immediately, without having to wait weeks for drops to soften the ear wax.
