What is Ear wax?
Ear wax is a natural substance produced by glands in the ear canal and is important for protecting the ear from dust, bacteria, and foreign objects. However, excessive ear wax build-up can cause discomfort, reduced hearing, ringing in the ears (tinnitus), and even infections.
There are several methods for removing ear wax, including ear syringing, ear candling, and microsuction. Microsuction is the most recommended method as it is quick, painless, and safe. This method involves using a fine, suction-tipped instrument to gently remove the ear wax while monitoring the progress through a microscope.
Ear wax removal should only be performed by a trained and licensed professional to avoid damage to the ear canal. If you are experiencing symptoms of ear wax build-up, it is best to see a healthcare provider for proper diagnosis and treatment.

The audiologist will examine your ear and use a microscope to see the extent of the wax build-up. Microsuction is considered to be the safest and most effective method for ear wax removal and is widely recommended by healthcare professionals.

How can we prevent earwax build-up
Ear wax build-up can be prevented by following a few simple steps:
- Avoid using cotton swabs, earbuds, or other objects to clean the ear canal. This can push the ear wax further into the ear and increase the risk of impaction.
- Use over-the-counter ear drops (earol) to soften the ear wax, making it easier to remove naturally.
- Book regular (every 6 months) ear checkups.
- Avoid exposing the ears to excessive heat or cold.
By following these simple steps, you can help prevent ear wax build-up and maintain healthy ears.
Ear syringing is a commonly used method for removing ear wax build-up. In this process, a warm water solution is squirted into the ear canal to flush out the ear wax. While ear syringing has been a popular method for many years, it has a number of drawbacks. It can be uncomfortable, messy, and has a risk of damaging the delicate skin of the ear canal or pushing the wax further into the ear.
In recent years, Microsuction has emerged as the most effective and safest method of ear wax removal. Microsuction is a gentle and precise method that uses a small suction device to remove the ear wax.
Ear candling is an alternative method for removing ear wax. In this process, a special type of candle is inserted into the ear canal and lit. The heat from the flame is supposed to create a suction that draws out the ear wax. While ear candling is a popular alternative to ear syringing, it is not recommended by many healthcare professionals due to the risk of burns and other potential damage to the ear.
Microsuction, on the other hand, is a safe and effective method for removing ear wax build-up. It uses a small suction device to gently remove the wax, and is performed by a trained audiologist. Microsuction is fast, painless, and has a high success rate in removing even the most stubborn ear wax. If you are struggling with ear wax build-up, it is recommended that you opt for Microsuction, the best ear wax removal method available.

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).
