Because it doesn't come into contact with the ear drum or the delicate skin of the ear canal, microsuction is said to be safer and more successful than ear syringing. This implies a lower chance of infection.

Even though it may not seem attractive, earwax is an oily material that has several defensive and antibacterial qualities that are vital for the health of the inner ear. Normally, the movement of your jaw helps the wax come out of your ears on its own, but occasionally it can accumulate and lead to discomfort and hearing issues. There are various reasons why these obstructions may arise, such as:

  • Little or hairy canals in the ears
  • Frequent contact with moisture causes the wax to expand
  • As we age
  • Using hearing aids, earplugs, or earbud headphones

It's common for us to occasionally experience a wax blockage, and while some people create more wax than others, don't worry—you're not alone. We can securely and painlessly remove wax in a single visit using a number of minimally intrusive and safe approaches.

Before having wax removed, apply medical-grade olive oil (available in-store) to help soften stubborn wax. Occasionally, in order to finish the removal, we might need to schedule another appointment. There won't be an additional fee in this case. It's about carrying out tasks both pleasantly and safely.

A low-pressure stream of warm water is sprayed into the ear during an ear syringe procedure, which lasts up to 30 minutes and removes wax and clears the canal. Though it shouldn't hurt, some individuals experience discomfort when the water comes into contact with their eardrums. Additionally, the process of the sticky wax and water emptying from your ear can be very untidy. Furthermore, audiologists are unable to perform this operation on patients who have had recent ear surgery, catarrh, an ear infection, or a ruptured eardrum.

At Tailor-Made HearingCare we also like to use soft and gentle irrigation with specialist equipment. We will always use the best method for the condition at that time. As part of this service, you will also receive a FREE Hearing Screening which will provide you with a baseline of your current hearing levels.  It’s so very important to gain this baseline whereby we can catch any hearing loss before it further deteriorates and leads to complication and detracts from the joy and sense of sound.
