Ear Microsuction Across Essex

How Can We Help?
Ear Wax: It is important to have ear wax, essential in fact! Everybody produces ear wax, it keeps the ear canal lubricated and protects the ear against dust, dirt and bacteria which help prevent infection. Wax is a combination of skin cells, dust and oily secretions from the glands in the ear canal, sometimes wax may build up particularly if it is very dry, a person has narrow ear canals or very hairy ears but also if something has pushed it down into the canal such as a cotton bud or hearing aid. Once ear wax has served its purpose it eventually migrates to the surface, dries up and falls out of the ears without us even knowing. The issues arise when the wax becomes impacted as the normal transit is interrupted and this can causes numerous problems.

Preventative Care

Ear wax build up can lead to surprising outcomes in mood and functioning of the brain itself. Good ear and hearing health is important to people of all ages and helps us to get the most out of life, if our ability to hear deteriorates it requires more energy to listen and participate in daily life so we become tired and in some cases, socially withdrawn. Although all ages can be affected, studies have linked hearing loss with cognitive decline and dementia. Unaddressed mid-life hearing loss is the most significant risk factor being responsible for 9.1% of people developing dementia.

Microsuction In Essex

Microsuction

We offer microsuction ear wax removal, this is a procedure that involves using a high definition video otoscope or high resolution microscope giving us the ability to directly visualise the ear wax prior to and during removal. A low pressure suction machine is used to gently hoover out the wax. The procedure lasts between 15-30 minutes and this can vary dependant on the amount and type of wax present.

Unlike ear irrigation and ear syringing whereby the wax is flushed out blindly, the ear wax is visualised at all times during removal. This means the procedure is much safer, quicker and more comfortable.

The are many other benefits of ear Microsuction over irrigation including:
