Our clinics only offer wax removal services to our hearing aid patients. Our clinicians use microsuction to remove wax from patient’s ears. Microsuction is considered the safest method of wax removal as it allows constant observation of the ear canal and does not involve the use of water which reduces the risk of infection.
When necessary our clinicians will also use curettage which removes the wax via a small scoop-shaped instrument.
Ear wax softening by use of drops is required before wax removal appointments. Please visit one of our clinics to pick up Audiologist Choice wax removal drops and instructions on method and duration of use. Wax removal drops are not recommended for patients with perforated eardrums.
