Microsuction Ear Wax Removal in Kent
Microsuction Wax Removal
It is very common for ears to become blocked with wax, leading to discomfort, pain and hearing loss. The symptoms of ear wax are impaired hearing, dizziness, ear pain, a plugged or full sensation and ringing in the ear. You should never attempt to self-clean and always seek professional advice.
We offer microscution wax removal which is a safe, gentle and effective method of wax removal. Microsuction is a wax removal technique using a binocular operating microscope. This allows depth perception and magnification so it becomes easier to look straight into the ear canal and using a very fine sterile suction device at low pressure remove the wax.
Occasionally we may need to use other instruments to remove hard wax. The technique means that we can always see what we are doing and can avoid touching the skin of the sides of the ear canal which makes the process a lot more comfortable.
Microsuction is the method preferred by medical staff and patients alike for guaranteed effective removal of wax. Unlike traditional forms of wax removal using ear wax softening drops for a week is not always necessary and in most case the wax can be removed safely within minutes by a trained professional.
