What happens if your ear blockage is not earwax

Unfortunately, sometimes the cause of ear blockage or hearing loss is not ear wax. As audiologists, we are trained to investigate the cause of your hearing loss. We will offer you a hearing test and tympanometry (pressure test that checks the middle ear status) at the appointment. If we diagnose any condition that needs further management, we will write to your GP to facilitate an onward referral or refer to a private ENT who can see you within 48 hours.

Why microsuction ear wax removal

Play Video about Sensitive video content.

Microsuction is the safest method for removing ear wax and our procedure of choice. Our audiologist will use a small suction tube attached to an ENT grade suction unit to suck the ear wax out of your ears while visualising your ear canals and ear drum through an ENT-grade microscope or endoscope. For some patients ear irrigation (flushing the wax out gently with water) or manual instrumentation may be more suitable. If this is the case, we will explain why we think an alternative procedure is best for you and obtain your consent.

Why is ear syringing no longer recommended

Short answer is we found a better way of cleaning ears. Ear syringing uses a manual ear syringe to flush water into the ear canal with the hope of forcefully pushing the ear wax out. Over the years, experts found due to force exerted during the procedure, a higher number of ear drum perforations were recorded. There were also reports of ear infections following the procedure. Lastly, sometimes the water pushed the earwax further down the ear canal causing more problems. Since we now have safer methods of ear wax removal like microsuction, this method was discredited in the UK and we do not use it in our clinic.

Ear Wax Removal FAQs

What people are asking

Earol drops are best to use 3-5 days before your ear wax removal. It is an olive oil spray hence natural. Do not use it if you have a perforation

Typically, 5-10 minutes, but always follow the product's instructions.

Do not attempt self ear cleaning methods as this can push the wax further in. Book a professional ear cleaning appointment and we would either suck the wax out via a procedure called microsuction or gently flush it out with an ear irrigation machine.

Sodium bicarbonate softens ear wax and only on rare occasions helps remove it from your ear canal. When the ear wax dissolves, it expands and could make your ears feel more blocked. After using sodium bicarbonate drops for about 3-5 days, you will need your wax removed professionally using microsuction. In our experience, sodium bicarbonate should only be used for hard ear wax. If you are unsure about the consistency of your ear wax, book a free ear check with us.

Only when it causes symptoms or discomfort. For many, natural jaw movements from talking or chewing can help expel wax. At Verified Hearing, we offer free 6 monthly reviews to all our patients so we’ll be able to advise you when you need to remove your ear wax.

Do not use cotton buds. Use earol spray for 3-5 days to soften the ear wax and then book a professional ear wax removal appointment. We will use either microsuction, ear irrigation or specialised manual tools to remove the wax from your child’s ears.

If the tinnitus was caused by earwax blockage, yes

Yes, if your hearing loss was caused primarily by ear wax, you should notice an instant improvement after the procedure.

Ear candles do not work and have no scientific bases. They can also be dangerous, so we do not recommend them.

It is safe to fly after ear wax removal. There are no concerns at all.

In rare cases, yes. The noise from the suction machine can cause tinnitus which in most cases is temporary and should resolve within a few hours or days. The suction air or water used for the procedure can also cause something known as the “caloric effect” which can make you feel dizzy for a few seconds to minutes after the procedure.

No, we are yet to see any home ear cleaning kits that are safe. Also, cleaning your ears safely demands in-depth knowledge of your ear anatomy and ear pathologies to ensure you do not hurt yourself and can identify if there is any need for any further ear treatment.

If you are referring to the cameras sold online for self ear cleaning then no, they are not safe. To clean your ears safely you need a good knowledge of its anatomy to know how to navigate your ear canal safely without causing harm. An Otoendoscope which is a medical grade camera device we use for visualising the ear canal while cleaning is safe for professional use.

If you are within easy reach of central or west London then Verified Hearing could be a good option for you and we would love to welcome you to our clinic.

The ear wax removal procedure does not exceed 20 minutes for both ears in most cases.

Excess or impacted earwax can cause hearing loss, discomfort, or infections. However, a small amount of wax is normal and protective to the ear canal.
