Ear wax, though often overlooked, plays a crucial role in our ear health. However, when it accumulates, it can lead to discomfort and even hearing issues. In this blog, we take a closer look into the nature of ear wax, how to recognise when it becomes a problem, and how Moor Hearing’s specialised ear wax removal service can help.
What Is Ear Wax?
Ear wax, medically known as cerumen, is a natural substance produced by glands in the ear canal. Its primary function is to protect the ears from dust, microorganisms, and foreign particles, while also lubricating the ear canal and preventing dryness. Normally, ear wax is a self-cleaning agent, naturally exiting the ear. But at times, it can build up and become impacted, leading to a host of issues.

Ear Wax FAQs
How do I know if I have excess ear wax?
Signs of excessive ear wax include a feeling of fullness in the ear, earache, tinnitus (ringing in the ear), hearing loss, itching, and dizziness. If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, it’s advisable to seek professional advice.
Can I remove ear wax at home?
While there are over-the-counter remedies available, we strongly advise against self-removal of ear wax, especially using cotton swabs, as they can push the wax deeper into the ear canal. It’s best to consult a professional for safe and effective removal.
Is ear wax removal painful?
At Moor Hearing, we ensure that the ear wax removal process is as pain-free as possible. Techniques like microsuction are typically comfortable and quick.
How often should I get my ears checked for ear wax build-up?
This varies from person to person. We recommend an ear check-up at least once a year, or more frequently if you’re prone to ear wax build-up or use hearing aids.
