Home Ear Syringing
We've built a long-standing relationship based on trust and delivering a friendly and professional service.
We offer the irrigation method of earwax removal in the comfort of your own home. We have found that people are more comfortable with it. Why leave home when we can come to you.
The procedure is undertaken with a spray type ear washing machine. The irrigation solution is carefully warmed to body temperature for your comfort and the careful removal of the wax.
What should you do about ear wax build up?
If wax is not causing any problems, it is best left alone. The ear is self-cleaning and the wax should clear itself naturally. If wax is noticed on the outer ear, a wipe with a clean cloth may be all that is needed. Sometimes however, wax may build up, particularly if it is very dry or if the person has a narrow or hairy ear canal. Wax may also build up if it has been pushed down the canal by cotton buds, hearing aids, hair clips or other implements. Cotton buds can also irritate the ear canal, stripping it of its natural oils and causing it to feel itchy. When water gets into the ear during swimming or showering this may cause the wax to expand, giving a sensation of ‘blockage’ in the ear and increasing the perception of tinnitus.
If wax build up is causing deafness, problems with hearing aids, or is uncomfortable, it may need to be removed. Some people with tinnitus feel that their tinnitus is more troublesome when their ears are full of wax.
What clinical methods are used to remove ear wax?
One of the most frequent ways to remove wax in general practice is by ear irrigation, or ear syringing as it is commonly known. This procedure cannot be carried out if you have had any ear surgery, recent infections or a perforation of the ear drum. It is also not advisable to carry out the procedure if you suffer from any dizziness problems or very troublesome tinnitus.
During this procedure, you will sit upright in a chair and the ear is rinsed with warm water from an electronic irrigator. The wax and water is collected in a cup-shaped receiver which you hold under your ear. Ear syringing does make some noise but this is not excessive or uncomfortable. Most people who have irrigation find it to be a fairly pleasant procedure.
Never try to remove the wax yourself with any instrument or device as you will most probably push it further down the ear canal and/or cause damage to your ear.
