Blocked ear wax is the most common cause of hearing loss. This can happen if wax is pushed back toward the eardrum or if the ears produce more wax than is needed. Symptoms of impacted wax include earache, feeling fullness in the ear, a sensation that the ear is plugged or even tinnitus, ringing in the ear. Your ear may also itch, have an odour, or emit a discharge.
At Ridgways Hearing Care we can check your ears first for wax and offer you two methods of wax removal:
Ear irrigation - a safe and painless procedure where water is put into the ear at a controlled pressure.
Microsuction - without the use of water this procedure is a gentle suction using a finely calibrated device.
