Ear Wax Removal
Quick, Safe & Effective
Simple & Safe Microsuction Ear Cleaning,
Performed by Experts
The microsuction technique uses gentle suction to clean the ear, and is much safer and more comfortable than all other forms of ear cleaning, including syringing and irrigation. A small, thin probe is directed at the ear wax and/or infection in the ear canal, and the gentle suction is applied to remove the blockage. With microsuction there is no need for pre-treatment, e.g. olive oil or ear drops. This technique of ear wax removal in Belfast, Bangor and Dungannon is extremely safe and effective.
The Benefits of Microsuction
Unlike ear syringing or ear irrigation, where ear wax is flushed out without a view of the canal, during microsuction, the canal and the ear wax is being directly viewed with the microscope whilst it is being removed. This makes the procedure much quicker, safer and comfortable for the patient. Other benefits of this type of ear wax removal in Belfast, Bangor, Dungannon, Omagh & Ballymoney clinics include:
I was experiencing reduced hearing on my right side for years and was convinced I needed hearing aids and avoided going for a hearing test. I finally picked up the courage to go and it turned out I had heavily impacted ear wax which was removed and the difference is amazing. Thank you.
Endoscopic Wax Removal
Endoscopic wax removal is the process by which wax is removed from the ear with the help of a specialist endoscope. An endoscope is an instrument attached to a video monitor that is used in medical procedures to look inside the body.
Irrigation is an alternative wax removal procedure available to patients who are comfortable with it. Safer and more straightforward than syringing, an irrigation solution is warmed to body temperature before a controlled flow is gently streamed into the ear.
