Irrigation ear wax removal, also known as ear syringing or ear lavage, is a method that involves flushing the ear canal with water to remove excessive or impacted earwax.
The procedure is considered safe and effective when a trained professional performs irrigation ear wax removal. However, it may not be suitable for everyone, especially those with certain ear conditions or a history of ear surgeries. These patients may require Microsuction Ear Wax Removal.
The procedure itself is typically painless, although you may feel some mild discomfort or a sensation of fullness during the irrigation process.
The duration of the procedure can vary depending on the amount and hardness of the wax. Generally, it takes a few minutes per ear. However, each case is unique, and the time required may vary. Our appointments for ear wax removal are for 20 minutes.
While irrigation ear wax removal is generally safe, some potential risks include infection and dizziness. These risks are minimal when performed by a trained professional.
We recommend using an oil-based ear drop 1-2 weeks before your appointment to ensure the wax is soft and easy to remove.
The frequency of ear wax removal varies for each individual. Some people may need it more frequently due to excessive wax production, while others require it less often. It is best to consult with a healthcare professional to determine the appropriate schedule based on your specific needs.
To prevent excessive ear wax build-up, avoid inserting objects like cotton swabs or hairpins into the ear canal, as they can push the wax deeper or cause damage. Maintaining good ear hygiene and regularly visiting a healthcare professional for ear check-ups can help prevent significant wax accumulation.
