Adelaide Hearing is proud to offer safe, gentle micro-suction earwax removal. The safest, most effective, and gentle way of unblocking your ears.
Microsuction Earwax Removal is the preferred method of wax management as it guarantees safe and effective removal of both wax and other foreign bodies that could be blocking the ear canal.
Earwax is a yellowish waxy substance secreted in the outer part of the ear canal. This wax protects the ear from dust, foreign particles, and microorganisms. It also protects ear canal skin from irritation due to water and assists in cleaning. Normally, excess wax finds its own way out of the canal and is washed away but it often builds up, gets hard, and blocks the ear. Unremoved earwax build-up can lead to infection, temporary hearing loss, and tinnitus (ringing in the ears).
We use a Vorotek O-Scope microscope to carefully examine the ear then apply a low-pressure suction device to safely remove the blockage. No fluid is used to flush the ear and we can clearly see the blockage and your ear canal throughout the procedure. It is a non-invasive, safe procedure with minimum discomfort, carried out by a well-trained professional Audiologist.
