How the Earworx Procedure Works
Earwax plays an important role in ear health, but excess wax can cause problems. When wax builds up inside of the ear, it can become hard and impacted, resulting in multiple problems such as discomfort, pain, difficulty hearing and more.
The Earworx procedure is designed to remove earwax gently and safely, using the advanced microsuction technique that is used and recommended by Ear Nose and Throat specialists.
Our friendly Registered Nurses begin by examining the inside of your ear using ‘loupes’ that are specially designed binocular glasses that allow them to see inside of your ear canal. If they determine that you need one of our extraction procedures, they will continue to visualise your ear canal throughout to ensure we are taking care of your ears and removing the entire blockage.
Microsuction works like a tiny vacuum to remove excess wax out of the ear. It is a dry technique which is safe and extremely effective for removing earwax.
Why You Might Need Ear Wax Removal
Many people will require an earwax extraction during their life. Some of the reasons why you may suffer from excess or impacted earwax include:
- Swimming and surfing
- Using headphones
- Using hearing aids
- Working in dirty and dusty environments
Some people are also genetically predisposed to earwax impaction.
