Cerumen (Ear Wax) Removal
Cerumen, also known as earwax, is found in the external ear canal. Our bodies make cerumen to lubricate, clean, and protect our ears. Our ears are meant to have cerumen in them, but occasionally cerumen can become impacted, which can cause a temporary hearing loss, discomfort or a full feeling in the ear, and tinnitus.
When this happens, impacted cerumen needs to be removed. During your appointment, one of our audiologist will look in your ear to determine that impacted cerumen is causing your symptoms, and then it will be removed safely.
What can you do to avoid impacted cerumen? Don’t use Q-Tips! Cotton swabs often remove minimal cerumen, and push the majority deeper into the canal, making it more difficult to remove.
