Ear Wax Removal and Ear Cleaning

Ear Wax Removal and Ear Cleaning; Collaborating for the best ear health.

At the Hearing Healthcare Practice in Harpenden, we’re constantly updating and amending the services we provide. The cornerstone of our Best Practices approach is to evaluate any relevant published evidence outcomes of research and studies from around the globe.

Ear Wax removal and Ear Clearing may seem of little importance for us to devote much time to but nothing could be further from the truth. Our ears should self-clean… but this natural process can be disrupted, particularly when we attempt to take matters into our own hands.

This activity disrupts the natural order of things and can lead to infections, hearing loss, tinnitus and perforated eardrums.

The NHS service is under huge pressures today and many GP practices no longer carry out ear cleaning. As a result we now offer a rage of different methods for ear wax removal at our hearing centre in Harpenden including micro suction, using an endoscope or microscope, water irrigation and a dry method using tiny sterile ear hooks.

If you want your ears checked to see if they require any professional treatment, we provide a complimentary 5-minute ear check service. Call us or email for more details.
