Ear wax is a natural substance produced by the glands in the ear canal. It serves to protect the delicate skin of the ear canal, trap dust and debris, and prevent the growth of bacteria. However, sometimes ear wax can accumulate and cause blockages that can result in pain, hearing loss, and discomfort. In such cases, it is important to know when to seek help for ear wax blockages. In this blog we will be sharing what you need to know.
Ear Wax Blockage Signs
There are a few common signs of ear wax blockages to look out for. These include:
- Ear pain or pressure
- Tinnitus (ringing or buzzing in the ear)
- Decreased hearing in one or both ears
- Dizziness or vertigo
- A feeling of fullness in the ear
- Itching or discharge from the ear
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms then you may be suffering from an ear wax blockage. You can get in touch with our team today to have your ear wax problem solved fast and effectively.
How To Remove Ear Wax Blockages
Let’s start by looking at what you shouldn’t do if you have an ear wax blockage. It is important to avoid using cotton swabs or other objects to remove ear wax as this can push the ear wax further into the ear canal and cause further blockages. Additionally, some people may have a condition known as impacted cerumen, which is characterized by a chronic accumulation of earwax that cannot be removed using home remedies or ear drops.
The most effective way to remove ear wax is with the professionals at Moor Hearing. Our team of ear wax removal experts use microsuction techniques to remove your ear wax. Microsuction is a highly effective method for removing ear wax that has become impacted in the ear canal. Unlike other methods such as ear drops or manual removal, microsuction does not require the use of any chemicals or physical instruments to remove the ear wax. Instead, it uses gentle suction to safely and effectively remove the blockage. Microsuction is also a highly convenient method of ear wax removal. There is no need for lengthy preparation or recovery time, and patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure.
