What is ear wax?
Ear wax, also known as cerumen, is a natural substance produced by the glands in the skin of the ear canal. It is a mixture of dead skin cells, hair, and secretions from the glands that help to protect and clean the ear canal. Ear wax helps to lubricate the ear canal, prevent infections, and trap dust and other foreign particles that can enter the ear. It also has antibacterial and antifungal properties that help to prevent infections. Although it is generally considered a normal and healthy part of the ear, excessive ear wax can sometimes cause hearing problems or discomfort and may need to be removed by a doctor.
What is microsuction?
Microsuction is a modern and non-invasive method of removing ear wax from the ear canal. It involves using a specialized instrument called a microsuction pump to gently suction out the wax. The procedure is quick, safe, and usually painless, and is considered a more effective and safer alternative to traditional techniques such as ear syringing or ear irrigation. Microsuction is typically performed by a trained healthcare professional such as an ear, nose, and throat (ENT) doctor or audiologist.
Why we don’t irrigate (syringe)
We do not offer ear syringing because it can be uncomfortable and carries a risk of infection or damage to the ear canal. Ear syringing involves flushing the ear canal with water under pressure to remove ear wax, which can sometimes push the wax further into the ear or cause damage to the delicate skin of the ear canal.
Microsuction, on the other hand, is considered the best ear wax removal method because it is non-invasive and uses a specialized suction instrument to gently remove ear wax without the need for water irrigation. Microsuction is quick, safe, and usually painless, and is performed by a trained healthcare professional such as an ear, nose, and throat (ENT) doctor or audiologist. It is a more precise and effective method of removing ear wax and is less likely to cause discomfort or damage to the ear canal.
Ear candling Barnet
Ear candling is a controversial and unproven alternative therapy that involves inserting a long, hollow candle into the ear and lighting it on fire. Proponents claim that the heat from the candle creates a vacuum that draws out ear wax and other impurities from the ear canal. However, there is no scientific evidence to support these claims, and ear candling can be dangerous and even cause injury. Ear microsuction is considered the safest and most effective method for removing ear wax. Book an appointment now!
