Ear wax is something you might not always think about when everything is working as it should. You will notice wax coming from your ears when you wash, but this is usually as far as most people think about it.
While ear wax isn’t pretty, it has many benefits for the ears, especially the inner ear. If you do have problems, there are now modern techniques that can help you quickly and effectively.
In fact, so swift and sophisticated are these techniques, that you could even conceivably get excess and troublesome ear wax removed from your ear during your lunch break. So, let’s delve a little more deeply into what that could involve.
Why do you need ear wax?
Your hearing is one of your most important senses. Not only does it alert you to danger, but it also helps you communicate with others. Your ear wax provides a vital function in protecting the delicate inner ear and stopping infections. The wax contains antibacterial properties that clean and protects the ear.
For those people who have problems with a build-up of ear wax, there are now new techniques that can be performed. These allow ear wax removal for workers in Canary Wharf and beyond in their lunch breaks.
Why would you need ear wax removal services?
Some people are not able to clear the wax in their ears naturally. This can result in a build-up of wax that can start to cause problems. Other factors, such as the use of earbuds, can also help contribute to a build-up of ear wax that cannot escape the ear as it normally would.
Some of the common issues that you may experience if your ears become blocked with ear wax include:
- Hearing loss or muffled hearing
- Earache that lasts for a prolonged period
- Balance problems or vertigo
- Ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
- Unexplained coughing
An examination of the ears can show if there is a build-up of wax that needs to be removed.
How is the ear wax removed?
Advances in technology and wax removal techniques help explain why many people are now getting their ears effectively cleaned and cleared of ear wax in their lunch break. Traditional methods involved syringing the ear with warm water to soften and wash out the wax. While this technique is still used by some, modern micro-suction ear wax removal is making the process easier and more comfortable.
There are no syringes used in this method, no mess, and it is also safe and pain-free, which will be a huge benefit to many people. In some cases, olive oil may need to be used in the ears for a few days prior to the procedure to soften the wax.
With micro-suction ear wax removal, professionally trained staff are able to see inside the ear clearly. They are also able to complete the process in as little as 30 minutes. This makes the procedure perfect for people with busy schedules who can fit a visit to an ear wax clinic into their lunch break.
