Ear Wax Removal Charlotte
If you are looking for ear wax removal in Charlotte, NC, we offer the gold standard in ear cleaning, the Earigator ear spa. You will feel refreshed and confident after the quick in-office procedure.
Cerumen is the medical term for ear wax. A video exam of your outer ear canal is the very first procedure performed during the course of a hearing evaluation. You will be able to see the inside of your own ear! This is to check that the canal is clear of excessive ear wax and also that there are no abnormalities in the canal or ear drum. Ear wax should naturally work its way out of the ear over time, but in some case it becomes excessive and can block the ear canal which can cause pain, dizziness and can reduce the ability to hear.
If excess ear wax is found in the external auditory canal, then ear wax removal may be performed by our qualified providers. Our Earigator Ear Spa treatment, also called ear lavage, is a safe and comfortable method to remove stubborn wax. The key to the comfort of this treatment is that the water is kept at body temperature so it does not feel shocking or cause dizziness. Some patients only need this treatment once for an abnormal wax blockage and others will schedule routine visits to keep their wax issues under control. If you wear hearing aids, keeping ear wax at a minimum is a smart way to protect your investment.
If you are a hearing aid user, it becomes even more important for your ear canal to stay clean of wax so that your hearing aid stays clean, dry and up to peak performance. In fact, impacted ear wax can cause issues with feedback, reduced output, and can damage the device. Based on your ear canals and type of wax issues, recommendations like at-home irrigation or in-office removal may be made to help you keep your ears consistently clean.
