What is Ear wax?
Earwax, also known as cerumen, is a natural substance produced by glands in the ear canal. Its function is to lubricate and protect the ear, trapping dust, dirt, and other particles to prevent them from reaching and damaging the eardrum.
Normally, earwax migrates from the ear canal to the opening of the ear, where it dries up and falls out. However, sometimes earwax can build up and become impacted, causing symptoms such as ear pain, ringing in the ears, hearing loss, or a feeling of fullness in the ear. In such cases, earwax removal may be necessary.
Symptoms of ear wax buildup
Excess earwax buildup occurs when the ear’s natural cleaning mechanism is disrupted, causing earwax to accumulate in the ear canal. This can result in a blockage, leading to symptoms such as ear pain, ringing in the ears, hearing loss, or a feeling of fullness in the ear.
There are various factors that can contribute to excessive earwax buildup, including genetics, the use of hearing aids, and the frequent use of cotton swabs or other objects to clean the ear canal.
Ear syringing is a traditional method of earwax removal that involves flushing the ear canal with warm water. While it has been a common practice for many years, it can be harmful if not performed correctly, as it can cause damage to the ear canal or eardrum.
If you are experiencing symptoms of excessive earwax buildup, we recommended ear microsuction over ear syringing. This method is performed by trained professionals and is considered to be the safest and most effective method of earwax removal.
Ear Candling in Angel, UK
Ear candling, also known as ear coning or thermal-auricular therapy, is an alternative method of earwax removal that involves inserting a hollow candle into the ear canal and lighting the other end. The heat from the candle is supposed to create a suction that draws out earwax and other impurities.
However, ear candling is not supported by scientific evidence and can be harmful. It has been known to cause burns, injury to the ear canal, and push earwax further into the ear, leading to impacted earwax.
If you’re experiencing symptoms of earwax buildup, it’s best to book an appointment for microsuction ear wax removal.

What is ear microsuction?
Ear microsuction can be likened to an ear vacuum. It is essentially the process of cleaning out your ear wax safely with a suction machine whilst using a microscope as the primary viewing equipment. The suction machine is used at calibrated pressure levels to remove ear wax safely from your ears. “Micro” refers to the microscope used to look into your ears during this procedure, while “suction” refers to the machine used to draw out the ear wax, hence “microsuction”.
Endoscopic wax removal is a more advanced option for looking into your ears during ear cleaning as it provides a real-time view of your ears. We always offer our customers endoscopic wax removal as a first option because it is the most advanced technique. Most of our clients enjoy seeing the video recording of the ear cleaning process. We use our CE-marked endoscope called VerifEYEd View.
What is the best way to remove ear wax?
Various techniques can be used for professional ear cleaning. The best technique depends on the nature of ear wax to be removed.
Our preferred method at Verified Hearing is endoscopic wax removal using a suction machine because this is the most advanced technique. However, in some cases, we would need to use a sterilised instrument, such as a Jobson Horne or ear hook, to remove the ear wax gently. Patients sensitive to loud sounds or who suffer from tinnitus may find the sound of a suction machine unpleasant. So, we tend to avoid using it in such cases.
Although ear irrigation is becoming less and less popular, there are times when this is the most suitable technique for ear wax removal. In such cases, we do not hesitate to employ it, using only the safest irrigation machine.
Does Verified Hearing offer children’s ear wax removal services?
Yes. We have a senior paediatric audiologist who is part of our team. We can safely clear ear wax from your child’s ear(s).
