What’s Involved in the Earworx Procedure?
Earwax typically serves a healthy and necessary purpose by protecting the deep structures inside our ears, such as our eardrums, and preventing infection by facilitating the self-cleaning nature of our ears. However, it’s possible to have too much of a good thing and earwax can reach a point of becoming excessive and begin to create problems.
At our Umina Beach clinic, your aural health will be assessed by our qualified, registered nurse, Ivana to determine whether our safe and reliable earwax removal service is necessary. If clinically indicated, our micro-suction technique will remove built-up wax and unwanted debris from your ear through a simple procedure that can take as little as half an hour.
With special binoculars equipped with a bright light, known as ‘loupes’, Ivana will be able to carefully observe your ear canal to ensure the safety of the procedure. Endorsed by Ears, Nose and Throat specialists, the micro-suction technique is the safest and most effective technique for earwax removal available. When the solution is so straight-forward and easy, there is no reason anyone should need to suffer from excess earwax and blocked ears.
Symptoms of Built-Up Earwax
Ears blocked from excess amounts of wax can cause discomfort through symptoms such as itching, earache, tinnitus, dizziness and even hearing loss.
Those who are particularly prone to suffering from built-up or impacted earwax are those who wear a hearing aid, frequently use earphones, regularly swim or dive, or have hairy, bendy or narrow ear canals. It’s important not to attempt home remedies for removing earwax. Doing so is likely to push the wax further into the ear canal with the potential for causing permanent damage.
If you suspect you are suffering from built-up earwax and are experiencing any of the symptoms listed above, contact us for an appointment today.
