A very common issue that can be cleared quickly and painlessly. If you're suffering from a blocked ear and think it's due to excess wax buildup, we can help.
Ear wax removal is a relatively simple procedure that we can do quickly and painlessly in our Beamsville clinic.
Ear wax is designed to protect your ear from dust and other particles. Over time, however, it can build up in your ear canal and cause a blockage of your ear canal, making it difficult to hear.
When too much ear wax is produced and it's not properly cleaned, blockages can occur. Most often however, ear wax blockage results from the improper use of a cotton swab.
Cotton swabs are not intended to go inside of your ear canal. The risk is that the cotton swab pushes and compacts the existing wax in your ear canal, which is where the blockage can occur. » View Diagram: Anatomy of an Ear
