Ear wax is a natural substance generated by the glands in the ear canal. It lubricates and saves the ear against dust, bacteria, foreign bodies, and debris. Additionally, the amount of earwax generated varies from person to person and will generally fall out by itself and does not cause any issues. When this occurs, professional ear wax removal Basingstoke is the best way to get it treated. Get in touch with us if you are in need of ear wax removal in Basingstoke or any of the surrounding areas.
Signs that you may have excessive earwax:
· Blocked or pressure feeling in the ears
· Reduction in hearing
· Feeling when more blocked when using softening agents
· Whistling from hearing aids
What about ear syringing?
Ear syringing is a technique of ear wax removal using a syringe of water to dispel any wax from the ear. Ear irrigation is similar as it also needs water; anyway, it is performed under a managed pressure. When you do syringing, there is an increased danger of infection. During ear syringing the practitioner is also working blind and is not capable of viewing the eardrum or wax during the procedure. It is also unsuitable for perforated eardrums. That is why microsuction earwax removal is seen as the gold standard in earwax management.
Advantages of professional ear wax removal Basingstoke
The skin on the inside of the ear canal is extremely sensitive and can be destroyed easily. We do not suggest you attempt ear wax removal at home using cotton buds. The force closes to your eardrum and can cause further issues, making ear wax removal more challenging.
· Taster than ear syringing
· Restored hearing
· Clearer view of eardrum and canal
· Less chance of ear infections
· Less chance of dizziness matched to ear syringing
· No messy water used unlike ear syringing
· Safe with perforation
