Earwax (also known as cerumen) is a normal secretion in the ear. Firstly it protects the skin of the ear canal, assists in cleaning and lubrication. Secondly it provides some protection against bacteria, fungi, dust and water.

The ear canal has its own self cleansing mechanism. The skin lining the ear canal naturally migrates from the centre of the ear drum to the outer ear. As a result the wax moves along with it, together with any debris it has collected.

How much wax we produce depends on things like:

  • Age
  • Diet
  • Lifestyle
  • Genetics
  • Ethnicity

Additionally earwax can cause pain or hearing discomfort when it becomes impacted in the ear canal.

Things that cause the build up of wax include:

  • Using cotton buds
  • “in-ear” headphones
  • Ear plugs
  • Dry skin
  • Narrow ear canals

At Bollington Hearing Centre we offer highly effective professional treatments to remove wax at our practice. But we can also do it in the comfort of your own home.

Using the latest medical grade equipment via a microscope or video endoscopy. We offer all forms of wax removal, microsuction, irrigation in addition to instrumentation.

Wax removals are conducted by our qualified audiologists, who have undergone accredited microsuction training, in addition to being registered members of the Health & Care Professional Council (HCPC) and fellows of the British Society of Hearing Aid Audiologists (BSHAA).

Our audiologists will provide a full ear inspection that is shown on a screen. They will then discuss what the best form of wax removal is for you and subsequently remove any wax or debris present.
