Ear Wax Removal | Ear Cleaning
Cerumen, also known as earwax, is naturally produced by the glands in the ears to lubricate the ear canals and keep dust and debris from getting too far down in the ear canal.
Cerumen typically clears itself from the ears, but in some instances can accumulate and cause a blockage.
Symptoms of a cerumen blockage include:
If a blockage occurs, it may need to be removed. Coast Hearing Services provides Ear Wax Removal by Irrigation which is the most common method used to remove blockages.
The less common method is curettage, which involves the use of a curette. A curette is a long, curved tool that is used along with suction to gently scrape cerumen from the ear canal, removing the blockage.
If you experience pain or discomfort as a result of earwax, or suspect you have a blockage, it's important that you make an appointment as soon as possible to address the issue. Removing earwax doesn't have to be painful and should bring you relief.
