When to See a Specialist for Earwax Removal
An earwax removal specialist has the expertise, experience, and equipment to deal with earwax the right way, maintaining nature’s delicate balance by allowing enough earwax to stay healthy. Earwax removal specialists also have a better view of your ear and special training in various earwax removal techniques to ensure safe removal.
When earwax production is an ongoing issue, our doctors of audiology can recommend proven products designed to reduce earwax production without upsetting the balance of natural earwax production.
Earwax removal does not involve digging and scraping around in your ear canal with a curette (a long, thin instrument with a wire loop). The primary method used for earwax removal is irrigation, which involves using a rubber bulb syringe to introduce warm water into your ear to soften the earwax and help flush it out.
In most cases, irrigation is enough, but for particularly stubborn earwax, we have to use a curette. From our vantage point, we can perform the task with the least amount of discomfort to you and without the risk of doing damage to your ear canal and/or eardrum.
