Ear Wax Removal & Management: Professional Care for Optimal Ear Health

Why Ear Wax Build-Up Occurs

Ear wax removal is crucial for maintaining optimal ear health. Ear wax, or cerumen, is a natural substance produced by glands in the ear canal. Its purpose is to trap moisture, skin particles, and dust, preventing them from reaching the eardrum. While a small amount of ear wax is beneficial and normal, excessive build-up can lead to discomfort and other issues. Factors contributing to ear wax build-up include:

  • Narrow ear canals
  • Use of hearing aids
  • Increased production of ear wax

Common symptoms of excessive ear wax include tinnitus, mild hearing loss, and occasional ear discomfort.

Our Specialised Ear Wax Removal Process

At our clinic, our audiologists are highly trained in the safe and effective removal of ear wax using advanced microsuction technology. This method is superior to traditional ear irrigation or flushing techniques, which we do not recommend due to potential complications. Microsuction offers several advantages:

  • Gentle and Comfortable: The procedure is painless and avoids the risks associated with water-based methods.
  • Effective: Microsuction efficiently removes even stubborn wax build-up.
  • Safe: The process is controlled and precise, minimising any risk of damage to the ear canal or eardrum.

Preparing for Your Ear Wax Removal Appointment

For the best results, we advise using ear drops containing a peroxide compound, such as Ear Clear, a few days before your appointment. These drops help to soften and loosen the wax, making removal easier and more effective.

Avoid Using Certain Ear Drops: Drops like Waxsol or Cerumol may sometimes complicate the removal process. To ensure optimal results, stick to peroxide-based ear drops.

Frequently asked questions.

Do I need a referral?

You don’t need a referral to book a wax removal appointment.

What are my funding options?

For wax removals, General Practitioner can put you on a Chronic Disease Management (CDM) plan (also known as an Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) Plan) which entitles you to five allied health appointments per year, partially subsidised by Medicare.

Generally, we only recommend this if you need ear wax removed more than once a year.

We are Medicare registered Audiologists that can provide this service.
