What is ear wax?
Ear wax, scientifically known as cerumen, is a substance produced by the ceruminous glands in the ear canal. It is a natural mixture of oils, dead skin cells, and secretions, which play a crucial role in protecting and moisturizing the ear. However, excessive wax accumulation can lead to blockages and unpleasant symptoms like ear pain, itching, hearing loss, and tinnitus. Cleaning your ears regularly is essential, but using cotton swabs or over-cleaning can push the wax deeper and aggravate the issue. Trust an ear wax removal specialist to safely eliminate the extra wax and restore your hearing and comfort.

Symptoms of an ear wax build-up
Ear syringing or ear irrigation is a method used to remove earwax build-up, but it comes with several disadvantages that may cause more harm than good:
- Pain and discomfort: Ear syringing can be uncomfortable and painful, especially for those with sensitive ears. The pressure of water can cause discomfort, and the procedure can be quite loud and unsettling.
- Risk of infection: The ear is a sensitive area, and there is a risk of infection from using a contaminated syringe or exposing the ear to unsanitary conditions during the procedure.
- Eardrum perforation: The high pressure of water during ear syringing can result in a perforated eardrum, leading to hearing loss, pain, and other complications.
- Ineffective results: Sometimes, ear syringing may not effectively remove all the earwax. Instead, it can push the earwax further into the ear canal, causing more problems.
- Over-irrigation: Over-irrigation, where too much water is used during the procedure, can lead to infection and other complications.
Therefore, ear syringing should be performed under the guidance of a healthcare professional and with caution, considering the potential risks and discomfort associated with the procedure.
Ear syringing in Brent
Ear syringing, also known as ear irrigation, is a common method of removing earwax using warm water to flush it out of the ear canal. However, this method has several disadvantages, including potential risks and limitations. In contrast, ear irrigation is performed using an irrigation machine with calibrated pressure levels, but it is still not as safe as microsuction or e-microsuction. Professionals recommend microsuction as the primary method for ear wax removal in clinics.
Using ear candles to remove earwax and debris, also known as ear coning or thermal auricular therapy, is an alternative practice. The heat from the candle is believed to create a vacuum that removes impurities and debris from the ear canal. However, there is little scientific evidence to support this claim, and the practice is not recommended by medical professionals. It is safer and more effective to book an appointment for microsuction with a qualified ear wax removal specialist.
