A friendly and professional service
Irrigation is an exceptionally safe and comfortable method of earwax removal. The use of liquid ensures that the ear is washed completely clean. Most people find it a comfortable process and it is usually undertaken in about fifteen to twenty minutes making it a quick and simple service. Ear irrigation can be very effective at removing ear wax if performed correctly, in fact, it completely washes the ear canal and eardrum clean. Some people can also find the ear irrigation procedure very relaxing. Under the gentle force of the water, the ear wax is softened and dislodged, the wax is carried out of the ear and into the container. Whilst irrigating your ear, we may hold your ear at different angles to ensure the water reaches all of your ear canal.
We will also look inside your ear several times using an otoscope (an instrument used to examine the inside of your ear) to check whether the wax is coming out. Ear irrigation is a painless procedure, but your ear may feel a little strange as the water is squirted around your ear canal.
