Ears naturally produce ear wax – also known as Cerumen – and it plays an important role in our ear health. Ear wax keeps our ears clean and healthy, and protects them from dust, bacteria and fungi. However, sometimes the ear wax can build up excessively and start to cause us problems. This is where Irrigation ear wax removal can help, leaving our ears feeling clean, healthy and pain free again.

We want to explore Irrigation ear wax removal and to tell you more about how it can help you to take control of your hearing health. The Hearing Hub are your local hearing specialists, with a range of clinics across London and Essex. We provide clients with instant and effective ear wax removal, and specialise in Irrigation, Microsuction, and Instrumentation.

What is Irrigation and How Does it Work?

Irrigation is a method of ear wax removal that involves flushing the ear wax out of your ears to leave them blockage free, commonly known as ear syringing. During an Irrigation appointment, a trained practitioner uses a specialist device, to gently pump a controlled flow of warm water into your ear canal. It is a safe and comfortable method of ear wax removal, and the warm water will carefully and gently flush out any excess ear wax that’s blocking up your ears. 

It is a painless procedure, and doesn’t take long to complete with you being in and out within 10-30 minutes usually. It is one of the safest and most effective methods of ear wax removal, and for many people it’s the best method to dislodge the plug of earwax that’s blocking up their ears.

What are the Obvious Signs of Wax Build up?

There are some common signs of ear wax build-up that you can look out for that signify that you could benefit from an Irrigation procedure. Just one of the most common signs is a feeling of clogs or fullness in your ears, which could be due to a build-up of excessive ear wax. You might also be experiencing pain in your ears, or Tinnitus – a ringing in your ears. Some people also experience hearing loss when they have excessive build-up in their ears, as well as headaches.
