What’s Involved in the Earworx Procedure?
Earwax is a naturally occurring substance that plays a vital role in our ear health, helping to keep our ears clean from dust and other micro-organisms, as well as keeping them lubricated and fighting against infection. However, some people experience excessive earwax production, which can build up and cause the uncomfortable blocked feeling that so many of us know too well.
When you visit our Coffs Harbour clinic, your ears will first be assessed in order to determine whether the amount of wax present necessitates the wax removal procedure. If removal is recommended, micro-suction and curettage techniques will be used to gently and safely remove the built-up earwax, relieving you from your blocked ear. The entire procedure is completely pain-free and will be over in no time.
Symptoms of Excess Earwax
Excess and built-up earwax can cause a range of uncomfortable symptoms, including:
- Hearing loss
- A feeling of fullness
There are some factors which may make you more susceptible to excessive wax production, including:
- Spending a lot of time in water (such as swimmers, surfers and divers)
- Wearing hearing aids, earbuds or ear plugs regularly
- Putting cotton buds or any other objects in your ears
- Working in a dusty or dirty environment
- Having particularly bendy, hairy or narrow ear canals
- Suffering from skin conditions such as dermatitis or psoriasis
Using at-home methods in an attempt to remove earwax, such as cotton buds, can be dangerous and ineffective, pushing the wax further into the canal and causing damage. As such, if you ever experience the symptoms of wax build-up, you shouldn’t hesitate to book an appointment at Earworx.
