At OpenEars, we are committed to providing the most efficient earwax removal service using state of the art equipment to allow for a pain free and effective solution to earwax buildup. Using advanced microsuction technology, our skilled audiologists can gently loosen and remove even the most compacted wax to enable improved hearing and ease any discomfort it was causing.
Earwax build up is a natural process, however when blockages occur you may require professional removal to alleviate the symptoms and return your hearing back to normal. A visit to our Mansfield wax clinic would provide aid for:
Earache or a feeling that your ears are blocked
Ringing or buzzing in your ears (tinnitus)
Vertigo (feeling dizzy and sick)
Narrow or damaged ear canals
Lots of hair in your ear canals
Skin conditions affecting your scalp or around your ear
Inflammation of your ear canal
You cannot prevent earwax. It's there to protect your ears from dirt and germs. If there is a blockage of earwax you may require earwax removal to alleviate the symptoms.
Why Choose Microsuction Over Syringing?
Microsuction is valued as the ‘gold standard’ method of earwax removal techniques, proving to be safer and leading to more thorough results than traditional methods such as syringing and irrigation. Microsuction reduces the risk of infections and other complications as there is no contact with the sensitive skin of the ear canal or ear drum.
We use an ‘iCLEARscope®’ which is a tiny camera developed and approved by ENT consultants for the safe removal of wax. The camera provides a clear view of the ear canal, right at the face of the wax, making assessment and treatment extremely accurate, safe, and effective. Using the camera, we can also capture footage and images of before and after the wax removal procedure so that you can see the results.
Is it Uncomfortable?
Our expert audiologists in Mansfield are able to perform this procedure very safely and precisely with state of the art equipment. A gentle suction device is used to gently ‘hoover’ the wax out, ensuring that our clients are comfortable throughout. The gentle vacuum will generate a low-level noise which you most clients adjust to very quickly and the process is painless. In fact, some people find it very relaxing!
Our Mansfield wax clinic advises not to insert fingers, cotton buds or anything similar into your ear canals to remove earwax (however tempting this may be!). Unfortunately, this will only push it further in, exacerbating the issue. It is advisable to use softening drops or olive oil prior to earwax removal as it helps to lubricate the ear canal and soften the earwax which encourages the wax to come out more freely. If you prefer not to use softeners or have any contraindications to doing so (such as a hole in your eardrum) then it is not necessary.
