As Audiologist's we advise:
Always use a professional Audiologist (hearing specialist), who are trained to remove wax safely out your ears. Wax build up can cause dull hearing sensation, a blocked ear feeling, pain and for hearing aid users further complications. Our Audiologist use Microsuction for ear wax removal, this involves a tiny vacuum to gently ease out the wax. The Audiologist has full view of the ear canal using microscopic loupes/Light.
Microsuction is considered the safest option for wax removal. It use's a small vacuum to gently clear the ears. The suction power is very low, it is a very quick procedure and carries low infection risk due to it being a dry procedure. The Audiologist can see what they are doing through the use of loupes/Microscopes.
At Hear Again earcare, we take digital consent by asking you to fill out a form prior to each wax removal. The Audiologist will first inspect your ears using an Otoscope, adhering to BSA guidelines. If there is wax the Audiologist will continue to remove the wax out your ears. We will ensure you are comfortable and make you feel at ease. We recommend softening the wax prior to the appointment with olive oil, no more then 3 days.
