Ear wax plays a very important part in protecting and preventing infections in your ears; it contains antibacterial agents and has a cleaning mechanism, as well as lubricating the skin in your ears.
However, an excess amount of wax in your ears can lead to temporary hearing loss, pain or tinnitus. Cotton buds or similar items often used to relieve irritation can actually push the wax further down into the ear. Hearing aids are also a common cause of impacted ear wax.
At Afti Ear Room our expert clinicians are on hand with the highest quality clinical care to help keep your ears crystal clear using the safest and most efficient method of ear wax removal.
The clinicians at Afti Ear Room are trained to try to remove any excess ear wax safely using the method or methods that are best suited to your needs. Your clinician will explain everything in detail before using any removal method.
During your appointment our audiologist will also perform a free quick video otoscopy to view your ear canals.
