Manual Ear Wax Removal at Kensington Hearing

Manual Extraction Treatment

Ear wax, or cerumen, is a natural substance produced by glands in the ear canal. It serves a crucial role in maintaining ear health by trapping dust, bacteria, and other particles that could potentially harm your eardrum. However, when ear wax accumulates excessively, it can lead to discomfort, hearing loss, tinnitus, and even infection. One effective solution to this problem is manual ear wax removal.

At Kensington Hearing, we offer professional manual ear wax removal services to help you maintain optimal ear health. Our experienced team ensures a safe, comfortable, and thorough cleaning process, allowing you to hear clearly and feel your best.

Effective and Safe Manual Ear Wax Removal Tools for Gentle Ear Cleaning

“Very calm, clearly experienced and knowledgeable in their field”

– Giles Harris

What Is Manual Ear Wax Removal?

Manual ear wax removal is a traditional and highly effective method of cleaning the ear canal. It involves the use of specialized tools, such as a cerumen spoon or a Jobson-Horne probe, to gently remove excess wax. Unlike other methods like ear syringing or irrigation, manual ear wax removal does not require the use of water or any other substances, reducing the risk of ear infection or damage to the eardrum.

Choosing manual ear wax removal offers several benefits. It provides immediate results, is suitable for almost everyone, including those with perforated eardrums or ear infections, and it allows our professionals to have a clear view of the ear canal throughout the procedure, ensuring a thorough and safe cleaning process. At Kensington Hearing, we combine this traditional method with modern otoscopic technology to provide the best possible care for your ears.

Our Manual Ear Wax Removal Process

At Kensington Hearing, we believe in providing a transparent and comfortable experience for our patients. Here’s what you can expect during your manual ear wax removal appointment:

  1. Consultation: Our experienced audiologists will first conduct a brief consultation to understand your specific needs and concerns. This helps us tailor the procedure to ensure maximum comfort and effectiveness.

  2. Ear Examination: We’ll then use a special instrument called an otoscope to examine your ear. This helps us determine the extent of the wax buildup and the best approach for removal.

  3. Manual Removal: Using a set of professional tools, including a Jobson-Horne probe and microforceps, our audiologist will gently remove the ear wax. This process is carefully controlled to avoid any discomfort or damage to the ear.

  4. Post-Procedure Check: After the wax has been removed, we’ll conduct another examination to ensure all the wax has been cleared and your ear is healthy. We’ll also provide you with aftercare advice to prevent future excessive wax buildup.

Remember, your comfort and safety are our top priorities. Our team is trained to perform this procedure with the utmost care and precision.
