Ear wax, also known as cerumen, is a natural substance produced by glands in the ear canal. While it serves essential functions like trapping dust and bacteria, excessive ear wax can lead to complications such as hearing loss, tinnitus, and earache. At Moor Hearing, we often encounter clients who have tried DIY methods to remove ear wax, only to end up with adverse effects. In this blog, we aim to shed some light on the importance of professional ear wax removal and why it should be your go-to option.
The Risks of DIY Ear Wax Removal
Many people resort to using cotton buds, ear candles, or even hairpins to remove ear wax at home. While these methods may seem convenient, they often push the wax further down the ear canal, leading to impaction. Impacted ear wax can cause a range of issues, from minor discomfort to severe infections. Improper handling can lead to accidental injuries, including perforation of the eardrum.
Why Choose Professional Ear Wax Removal?
When you choose to have your ear wax removed professionally at Moor Hearing, you’re opting for a safe and effective procedure. Our qualified audiologists use specialised equipment to gently and accurately remove ear wax, minimising the risk of complications.
Before proceeding with the removal, we conduct a thorough examination of your ear to assess the wax buildup and rule out any underlying conditions. This step ensures that the procedure is tailored to your specific needs.
Quick and Comfortable
Professional ear wax removal is a quick process that usually takes less than 30 minutes. We use techniques like microsuction or irrigation, which are not only effective but also comfortable for the patient.
The Long-Term Benefits
Regular professional ear wax removal can offer long-term benefits, such as:
- Improved hearing: Excessive ear wax can dampen sounds, making it difficult to hear. Professional removal restores your hearing to its optimal level.
- Reduced risk of infection: Accumulated ear wax can become a breeding ground for bacteria. Regular removal helps maintain ear hygiene.
- Prevention of complications: By opting for professional services, you can prevent complications like tinnitus, vertigo, and even permanent hearing loss.
