How micro-suction ear cleaning works

If your ears are blocked, removal using micro-suction ear cleaning is the safest and gentlest way to clean the ears. This is the same method used by Ear Nose and Throat
specialist.

How it works:
FUNNEL

A small metal funnel is placed gently in your ear canal. Under a special ENT microscope, the doctor can see your ear canal under required magnification.

 

 

 

MICROSCOPE

Under microscope magnification the doctor can see into the ear at all times, making the treatment safe and effective.

Ear micro suction then is used to remove earwax or objects from the ear canal

 

 

SUCTION

Ear suction is carried out with a small sucker attached to a lowpressure machine that works like a gentle vacuum cleaner. The doctor may also use fine instruments (like tiny scoops) to help remove wax.

 

 

This guide gives you the facts and tips you need to keep your ears in a healthy condition

 

Normal healthy ears DO contain earwax
There are two types of earwax: dry or wet. The wet earwax is sticky so that it can trap dust in the canal to protect your hearing.

Your ears are self-cleaning
Wax leaves the ear via special migrating skin cells that move it out. Using cotton buds or other objects can damage these cells, affecting your ear’s ability to clean itself. Cotton buds can also push wax further in (impacted wax) or damage the ear drum.

Some ears block regularly
Some people are more prone to blockages due to overproduction of earwax, narrow or curvy ear canals, hairs in the canal, working in dusty or loud conditions or skin conditions.

Safe Ear Cleaning Tips
– Do not clean your ears with bobby pins, twisted tissue corners, or other long pointed objects.

– Do not insert cotton balls into the ear canal. They will merely push the wax deeper into the ear canal, causing a blockage.

– Do not use ear candles. The US FDA (Food and Drug Administration) issued a public warning in 2010 that the use of ear candles can lead to serious injuries.
