How the Earworx Procedure Works
Earwax removal is the core of our business, which means you are in the safe and capable hands of nurses who gently remove excess earwax from patients’ ears on a daily basis. We use micro-suction and curettage techniques that are endorsed by Ears, Nose and Throat specialists as the safest and most effective method for earwax removal.
When you visit our Cairns Central Plaza clinic, our nurse will first examine your ears to determine that earwax removal is clinically necessary. If so, you will have the chance to ask any questions about the procedure beforehand.
Using magnifying glasses fitted with a bright light, known as ‘loupes’, our nurse will carefully observe your ear canal throughout the procedure to ensure the extraction is completely safe. A tiny catheter attached to suction tubing is inserted into your ear and functions like a gentle vacuum that extracts impacted earwax.
Earwax removal has never been easier. You can book an appointment at our Cairns clinic without a referral and the entire appointment can take as little as half an hour. The techniques we use as well as the extensive experience of our nurses ensure that the procedure is both quick and painless.
Symptoms of Built-Up Earwax
Pain, coughing, dizziness, odour, itching, tinnitus or muffled hearing can all be symptoms of blocked ears. You are more likely to develop blocked ears if you:
- Swim or dive regularly
- Use a hearing aid
- Wear earphones frequently
- Work in a dusty or dirty environment
- Suffer from stress
- Attempt at-home ear cleaning with cotton buds or other objects
It is also possible to have a genetic predisposition that causes you to overproduce earwax. Having narrow, bendy or hairy ear canals can also lead to earwax becoming impacted more easily.
The solution to your uncomfortable symptoms could be as simple as an appointment at our Cairns Central Plaza clinic. Find out today by booking in your visit.
