wax removal

Removal of wax

Wax removal is performed at ent4kids either by an ent consultant or by a trained audiologist via micro suction.

Microsuction is considered far safer and more comfortable than other methods such as syringing because it does not rely on forcing pressurised water into the ear canal, with potential risk of damage to the eardrum.

The wax removal consultation usually lasts up to 30 minutes.  If for any reason it is found to be unsafe to proceed with microsuction we will talk you through other available options for resolving your ear wax.

Following a wax clearance appointment you may wish to have a hearing screening performed. During this screening each ear will be assessed separately and your hearing thresholds will be explained.
