There is no doubt that you will have heard about the medical practice of ‘ear syringing’. You might even have considered booking an appointment to have it done if you are having problems with your hearing. However, the NHS, as well as The Hearing Clinic UK, have determined that it is actually not only ineffective, but unsafe as well. Many tests have concluded that Microsuction Ear Wax Removal is better than ear syringing for clearing ear wax.
Inserting a large syringe into the ear to manually pump water into the ear canal could even cause permanent damage. The same guidance that has investigated this has also said that the same kind of damage (although perhaps not as severe) can be done with cotton buds.
The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence – NICE – instead recommends that using the Microsuction Ear Wax Removal technique is a safe way to remove wax build up. The microsuction removal treatment is a far more gentle procedure than other types of ear wax removal, you can come back far more regularly for treatment. Our new, revolutionary ear wax removal technique only requires drops to be inserted the night before.
It would be far better for those who need this procedure to be able to be sure that the procedure the clinical practice is using is absolutely safe, rather than run the risk of sustaining permanent damage.
Other methods could be used, however Microsuction Ear Wax Removal is the best technique for removing ear wax. Use ear drops to soften the wax and then any kind of irrigation will be much easier and more successful too. The drops can be used up to five days before the procedure.
