Microsuction

The safest procedure for the safe removal of ear wax from the ear canal as recommended by the guidelines set by national institute of Clinical excellence. It involves the extraction of the wax by introducing a small amount of suction in the ear which removes the wax safely from the ear. The practitioner uses medical grade loupes to assess the blockage or a surgical endoscope for greater depth perception.

Water Irrigation

Quintessentially this procedure is a follow up method from the evolution of ear syringing, however rather than using the dated draconian metal syringe. Irrigation involves an electrical irrigator with a disposal tip attached to the end which gently pulses water at room temperature into the ear canal. This is a safe and pain free method that is predominately used for cases where the ear wax is very sticky as a result of the ear being over saturated with either olive oil or sodium bicarbonate.

Manual Removal

Primarily suitable for cases where the consistency of the wax is solid and compact in which case a specialized manual tool is used such as a curette/jobson Horne.

We would not recommend Q Twists, hopi ear candles or any of its derivatives as we have found these to cause wax to be pushed right to the back of the ear. This can cause the eardrum to perforate or at the very least cause trauma to the ear.

Ear wax removal can help with vertigo. Your balance organ (vestibular saccule) is connected to your ears and any blockage of the ear canal can affect the compliance of your eardrum and in turn affect middle ear pressure which can make you disorientated and cause vertigo.

We often find when removing ear wax from the eardrum itself px can suddenly become very dizzy as the pressure is released of the eardrum which can cause some very temporary rotary dizziness which lasts for a 1-2 mins before fatiguing.

Every PX is different and every circumstance we see is different.
Some px’s need regular ear wax removal every 6-12 months however it is difficult to identify when a px requires it as they usually cannot see inside their ears to establish of they need to bring forward intervention.

A good trick would be to buy a small ear endoscope which can be purchased from Amazon for £5-10 pounds which will allow you to look in you ears regularly and gage when it might be a good idea to come in to have wax removed rather then wait for ears to completely block.

We always advice a qualified Audiologist or a practitioner nurse with experience in ear nose and throat.

Any other practitioner with a background not in Audiology simply wont have the experience to deal with complex difficult cases and you usually want a audiologist with 100’s of ear wax removal procedures under their belt.

We have dealt with so many cases were by patients have had terrible experiences with practitioners who have made glaring mistakes

Ear wax removal drops usually peroxide based including name brands like Otex and Sodium bicarbonate drops are great for breaking down hard abrasive wax in the ear ready for ear wax removal.

In some instances they can break down wax sufficiently to the extent were by earwax removal may not be required as the wax has sufficiently dissolved, however we find that this in most cases depends on the size of the cavity.

We usually deal with a lot of cases were by the wax has turned in to a semi liquid which slides down the ear canal and settles on the drum completely sealing the canal. and causing complete deafness,

our advise is to use drops for 2-3 days before coming in for an earwax removal.
