Ear Wax Removal

Sometimes ear wax may build up in the ear canal, causing a plugged sensation and decreased hearing. Symptoms you may experience that indicate ear wax build-up include:

  • Ear pain
  • A feeling of fullness in the affected ear
  • Ringing in the ear
  • Decreased hearing
  • Dizziness
  • Cough

The ear canal and eardrum are very sensitive and can be damaged easily. It is best to have a healthcare professional treat you if you have ear wax build-up. Never insert anything into your ear to try to remove wax. Your healthcare provider will have special instruments with which to inspect the ear and remove wax build-up. 

Book An Appointment

The ear may sometimes require flushing with warm water and a special system at your healthcare provider’s office. After flushing the ear, your provider will carefully inspect the ear to ensure no damage or infection is present. 

Some individuals seem prone to ear wax buildup and may need to have the ears flushed periodically. You may also need to use an over-the-counter ear wax removal medication to soften the ear wax for easier removal.

If you are experiencing ear problems, our healthcare providers will evaluate the reason and recommend a treatment option.
