Ear Cleaning

Any questions? Please Contact us for more information

Donna uses the gentle micro suction procedure which is the preferred ear cleaning method by Audiologists, GP’s and ENT specialist doctors. It is clinically proven to be a gentle method for removing ear wax, infection and foreign body blockages.

Our retro green dental chair allows comfort when having the procedure.

Microsuction

Microsuction is a gentle, professional, water-free procedure to remove ear wax, dry skin, foreign bodies and infective debris from your ears.

Using a magnified view allows Donna to view the ear canal down to the tympanic membrane (ear drum).

Our retro green dental chair allows comfort when having the procedure.

There is the option to see inside your ear canals pre and post wax removal on the TV.

What is Ear Wax?

Ear Wax (or Cerumen)  is produced by glands in the ear canal. It is an important part of the ear’s natural defence because it has natural lubricating properties and contains an anti-bacterial agent to help prevent infections.

Because ear wax is sticky and moist, it helps to trap foreign bodies and debris.

Wax only forms in the outer third of the ear canal and usually, slowly works its way out of the ear, bringing debris with it (rather like a natural cleaning system for the ear).

How do I know if I need my ears cleaned?

Symptoms of problematic wax:

  • Decrease in hearing, usually temporary
  • Earache
  • Fullness/plugged
  • Tinnitus(noise)
  • Itchiness
  • Odour
  • Discharge
  • Vertigo/dizziness
  • Jaw/facial or neck pain
