Q: How will I know what treatment to have?2022-06-09T08:26:53+01:00

A: Your ears will be examined to determine the consistency of your ear wax. If the wax is really soft and you have no contraindications, irrigation maybe the preferred method. If you have have dry, hard or impacted wax then microsuction can be the preferred option. Sometimes a combination of both can be required. You will always be advised which method would be best but if you have a preference for a certain method we will always offer this first.

Q: Will my ears be cleared of wax with one visit only?2018-11-26T19:46:41+00:00

A: This depends on the type of wax and depth into the canal, but yes, generally it is cleared with one visit. If the wax is too impacted and dry you maybe required to apply some olive oil to soften the wax prior to a follow up visit. Additional visits may incur an additional cost.
