What is Ear wax?

Ear wax, also known as cerumen, is a naturally occurring substance produced in the ear canal. It is composed of a mixture of skin cells, hair, and oils and serves to protect the ear from dust, debris, and harmful microorganisms.
Regular cleaning of the ear canal is not necessary and can actually be harmful. The use of cotton swabs or other objects to clean the ear canal can push earwax further into the ear, causing impactions and potentially leading to other problems.

If you are experiencing symptoms of impacted earwax, it is recommended to seek the assistance of a hearing healthcare professional for proper evaluation and safe ear wax removal.

Ear wax removal in Notting Hill

Individuals experiencing symptoms of impacted earwax, such as pain, hearing loss, ringing in the ear, and discomfort will benefit from ear wax removal.
There are various methods of ear wax removal, including microsuction, ear irrigation, and manual removal. Microsuction is considered the most effective and safe method by many healthcare professionals, as it uses gentle suction to remove earwax without pushing it further into the ear canal.
If you’re in Notting Hill seeking ear wax removal, you can book an appointment with us for a quick and painless procedure.

Ear Candling

Ear candling, a method of ear wax removal where a hollow candle is placed in the ear canal and lit, can cause damage to the ear and is not recommended by medical professionals. The heat generated by the candle can cause burns or perforations to the eardrum, and the wax residue left in the ear canal can be difficult to remove and cause blockages.
Microsuction, on the other hand, is considered a safer and more effective method of removing ear wax. This procedure involves the use of a gentle suction device and visualization through a microscope to safely remove the ear wax without causing any damage to the ear. Microsuction is considered the best option for ear wax removal as it is quick, safe, and has a low risk of complications.

Ear syringing

Ear syringing, a method of ear wax removal where water is forced into the ear canal to flush out the wax, can potentially damage the ear if not performed properly. This can cause damage to the eardrum or push the ear wax further into the canal, causing blockages and discomfort. Due to the risks we do not offer ear syringing.
Microsuction, on the other hand, is considered a safer and more effective method of removing ear wax as it is quick, safe, and has a low risk of complications.

The doctor was very nice. He checked my son's ears, but there was no microsuction needed. My son had no earwax in his ears that needed to be removed. Therefore, I don't understand why I was charged £120 for something that was not done. In cases like this, clients should get some of their money back, don't you think? It's common in other clinics.

Ear Wax Removal FAQs

What people are asking

We’re just a stone throw away.
Get quick and effortless ear relief by making the 27-minute journey from Notting Hill to our clinic at 126 Wigmore St.

Yes, however, you may need to make a quick trip out of Mayfair to our Wigmore St clinic. We have checked and it’s only a 9-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).
