What is ear syringing?
What causes the wax build-up and blocked ears?
If you produce excessive amounts of earwax, and also use cotton buds, earplugs or a hearing aid, then the wax can become compacted into the ear canal – and that can be very uncomfortable and frustrating.
If your ears are blocked with wax you may experience muffled hearing and persistent ringing. Don't ‘prod and poke’ – you might make it worse, pushing the wax further into the ear canal.
Do I need to do anything before I attend my appointment?
Use ear drops to soften the wax at least 5 days before coming into our ear cleaning clinic. This will make it easier for the doctor to remove the build-up, failure to soften the wax can result in perforating the eardrum.
Contact us to make an appointment or book online, appointments are usually available daily.
How much does ear syringing cost?
