When should I consider Ear Wax Microsuction?

What is Ear Wax removal with Microsuction?

Ear wax microsuction works by gentle suction of your ear wax which is attached to a highly powered microscope. It is the preferred method for Ear Nose & Throat Doctors for ear wax removal.

It has advantages over other methods of ear wax removal, such as syringing or using oil, as it is cleaner, quicker (often same day) and reduces the risk of damage to the eardrum.

Before attending your ear wax removal appointment

We will need to know if you have experienced:

Softening ear wax prior to your appointment.

In order to increase the chance of only needing one appointment we recommend using olive oil to soften your ear wax. This may dull your hearing as the ear wax absorbs the oil. Avoid using your hearing aid after applying olive oil in order to avoid.

If you experience a foul taste in your mouth after applying olive oil, it may be caused by a whole in your ear drum. Consult a doctor if this happens.

Alternatively you can use a spray known as Earol that requires using 7-10 days prior to your appointment according to instructions.
