how to remove ear wax
Ear wax is the most common cause of blocked ears. As ear care professionals we get asked how to remove ear wax almost everyday. Our ear wax removal specialists only practice and promote microsuction as this is the most effective way of treating ear blockage caused by wax.
what is microsuction ear wax removal?
‘Micro’ – because we use microscopes, ‘suction’ – because we use a finely calibrated suction device, to vacuum out the wax.
Our microsuction equipment is the best in class. We use Carl Zeiss optics and suction units designed and manufactured by DeVilBiss Healthcare, who are world leaders in the production of medical devices for ear cleaning.
Occasionally, when microsuction alone is not possible, we use a combination of fine instruments and eardrops; for example, in cases of impacted ear wax or foreign body removal.
The procedure will normally take a maximum of 20 minutes. The most you should feel is a gentle pulling sensation as your ear is being cleaned.
why choose ear wax microsuction?
We only practice microsuction, which is the NHS gold-standard for ear wax removal and is supported by NICE guidance. We are the UK's first CQC regulated provider of microsuction for mobile ear wax removal in London.
Unlike ear candling, syringing or irrigation, microsuction ear wax removal has a significantly lower risk of causing damage to your eardrum. This is because the procedure is performed under direct vision and avoids the use of any liquids at high pressure.
Microsuction is also an important part of the treatment of swimmer’s ear, or otitis externa, which can cause discharge and itchy ears.
The ear canal is a highly sensitive structure measuring approximately 7mm in diameter and 25mm in length. With such a small cavity to work in, microsuction above other methods has proven to be safer, cleaner and better tolerated by our patients.
Once the procedure is complete, our patients notice an immediate relief of their symptoms and often an instant improvement in hearing, from the comfort of their home. No more blocked ears!
