Earwax removal (Cerumen removal) is a procedure to get rid of wax buildup in the ear. Earwax is a natural substance made by the body to lubricate the inside of the ear. The resulting effort keeps foreign objects from finding their way dangerously down the ear canal. When earwax gets out of hand, it can cause symptoms like hearing loss, ear pressure, tinnitus and earache. Here are some options for getting rid of earwax;
- At home – Some professionals will offer to give customers the option of using at home kits for removing earwax. It’s usually an over-the-counter kit that comes in all shapes and sizes, and is a good alternative to multiple trips to the doctor’s office.
- Doctor’s office – For advanced earwax blockage, a trip to the doctor’s office is unavoidable. Using either irrigation of curettage a professional will remove the problematic wax.
Custom Earmolds and Earplugs
Since the various systems produce different hearing impressions, it is important for you to make a comparison yourself. For this purpose we will produce custom-made earmolds based on the exact contours of your ears. We can then ensure that your hearing aid fits perfectly.
Scheduled and performed by our licensed and nationally certified Hearing Healthcare Professional are subject to professional fees. Insurance often covers these services.
Hearing Aid Dispensing & Fitting
At the hearing aid fitting, you will receive the hearing aids you selected. They are programmed based on a prescription that is specific to each person’s hearing loss. The hearing professional may make adjustments after you try the hearing aids to make sure the settings and fit are ideal for you.
Hearing Aid Repairs
Some minor hearing aid repairs can be done in the office setting in a short period of time; others will need to be sent to the manufacturer for repair. Your hearing professional can help determine what kind of a repair is necessary if you feel your hearing aid is not working properly.
Tinnitus Evaluation and Management
When there is a constant ringing noise that won’t go away, it could be a sign of tinnitus. Other sounds like buzzing can also be related to this condition, which is important to diagnose since it can affect quality of life. There are a few key causes of tinnitus that patients should always be aware of.
- Related conditions – Other illnesses may be the cause of tinnitus, like head or neck injuries.
- Profession – Careers or jobs that expose the worker to loud noises can cause long-term damage.
- Earwax buildup – Blockages in the ear canal can worsen over time if it isn’t cleared out.
