Microsuction ear wax removal in East Dulwich
Microsuction ear wax removal is the preferred method for safely and effectively removing excessive or impacted earwax at our ear clinic. Our trained professionals use gentle suction devices and specialized techniques to remove earwax from the ear canal. Unlike ear irrigation or syringing, microsuction is less invasive and causes less damage to delicate structures. Experience quick, painless relief from earwax buildup with microsuction, performed by an audiologist or ENT doctor.
What is Earwax?
Cerumen, commonly known as earwax, is a vital secretion produced by the glands in the ear canal. This natural substance acts as a barrier, protecting the ear from dust, debris, and harmful bacteria. However, when cerumen accumulates in excessive amounts, it can lead to blockage and impaction. Symptoms of earwax accumulation include impaired hearing, discomfort, ringing in the ears, and a feeling of fullness. It’s important to note that while cerumen plays an important role in maintaining ear health, it’s crucial to address excessive buildup to avoid any potential hearing problems.
Signs of excessive earwax accumulation
Excessive earwax accumulation can cause several symptoms, including:
- Ear pain or fullness.
- Hearing loss or muffled hearing.
- Tinnitus (ringing in the ear).
- Itching or discomfort in the ear.
- Dizziness or vertigo.
- Discharge from the ear.
If you experience any of these symptoms, it is important to seek the advice of a healthcare professional. They can determine the cause and recommend appropriate treatment, which may include removing the excess earwax.
Ear candling in East Dulwich
Ear candling, also known as ear coning, is a practice in which a long, hollow candle is placed in the ear and lit, with the belief that the heat will create a suction effect and draw out earwax and other impurities. However, ear candling is not a scientifically supported or safe method for removing earwax, and has been discouraged by healthcare professionals.
At our ear clinic, we prioritize evidence-based practices and the safety of our patients. As a result, we do not offer ear candling as a treatment option. We only offer safe and proven methods for removing earwax, which is Microsuction.
Ear syringing in East Dulwich
Ear syringing, also known as ear irrigation, is a procedure in which water or a saline solution is used to flush out earwax. It was once a common practice, but in recent years its use has declined due to concerns about its safety and effectiveness. Ear syringing can cause injury to the ear if not performed correctly, such as punctured eardrums or pushed wax further into the ear canal.
At our ear clinic, we prioritize evidence-based practices and the safety of our patients. As a result, we do not offer ear syringing as a treatment option.

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).
