What is Ear wax?

Ear wax, also known as cerumen, is a natural substance produced by glands in the ear canal. It serves as a protective barrier against dust, bacteria, and foreign objects. Ear wax is made up of dead skin cells, hair, and oil, and is typically yellow or brown in color. Although ear wax is normally self-cleaning, excessive or impacted wax can cause discomfort, hearing loss, and infections. In these cases, a healthcare provider may need to remove the excess wax.

What is an excess ear wax build-up?

Excess ear wax build-up refers to a situation where there is an accumulation of ear wax in the ear canal that goes beyond the normal amount produced by the glands in the ear. This can cause blockages and impacted wax, which can cause discomfort, reduced hearing, ringing in the ears (tinnitus), and even infection. People who frequently use cotton swabs, hearing aids, or other devices that push wax further into the ear canal are at a higher risk of developing excessive ear wax build-up. An audiologist or healthcare professional can safely remove the excess wax, restoring normal hearing and relieving discomfort.

E-Microsuction

E-Microsuction is a type of ear wax removal procedure that uses a medical-grade suction device and an endoscope to safely remove ear wax. The procedure is performed by a trained and licensed professional who uses a small, gentle suction tool to remove the ear wax, while monitoring the progress through an endoscope.
This is our preferred method of ear wax removal at Verified Hearing.

Ear syringing in Maida Vale

Ear syringing is a common method for removing ear wax build-up. This method involves using a bulb syringe or a pressurized stream of water to flush out the ear wax. While ear syringing can be effective for some people, it is not always the best option for everyone.
For those with sensitive ears, the pressure from the water can be painful and even cause damage to the ear canal. Additionally, some people may have narrow or convoluted ear canals that make ear syringing more difficult or less effective.
Microsuction, on the other hand, is a gentle and effective method for removing ear wax. A healthcare professional uses a fine, suction-tipped instrument to gently remove the wax, without the need for water or pressure. Microsuction is quick, painless, and safe, making it the best method for ear wax removal.

Enjoy fast and easy ear relief by traveling from Brixton to our clinic at 126 Wigmore St in just 23 minutes.

Yes, however, you may need to make a quick trip out of Maida Vale to our Wigmore St clinic. We have checked and it’s only a 19-minute journey. And if you’d like an even more convenient option, we can offer you an ear wax removal home visit.

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.

 

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.

 

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).
