Qualified To deliver Micro suction Earwax Removal Service
As part of our commitment to further education that allows us to continually offer the best cutting edge service to our Patients, we have become qualified to perform micro suction services. we are the first private hearing healthcare Practice in Ireland to do so. We consider micro suction to be the safest and easiest method of earwax removal and that is why we decided to ensure it was available at our Practice.
What is Micro suction?
Micro suction is a procedure which uses gentle suction to remove excessive or troublesome ear wax. Ear wax micro suction is performed with the aid of an operating microscope and a finely calibrated suction device, without the introduction of any materials or liquids. Most ear wax removal is presently carried out through ear irrigation, which involves injecting a jet of water into the ear to remove the wax. The old ear syringing method precedes ear irrigation and is very rarely performed any longer because of safety issues. Ear irrigation is not always effective and sometimes is described as uncomfortable or unpleasant by patients.
Micro suction is very well tolerated by the majority of people, it delivers speedy results and tends to be much more effective than the traditional wax removal methods. It is also completely safe, as the professional can clearly see the structures inside your ear canal.
Pre- Treatment With Earol
Usually micro suction does not need pre-treatment with drops, most people have their wax removed in one session without it. However,if you wish to use drops, treatment of the ear or ears with two days of Earol (clinically treated olive oil) is the best preparation. We will examine your ear using our microscope, then using a fine low pressure suction device, we will safely remove the earwax blockage.
Micro suction is the preferred method of treatment for medical staff and patients alike for guaranteed effective and safe removal of earwax.
Micro suction is totally comfortable and in most cases the blockage is removed in minutes.
Only carefully selected fully qualified and experienced audiologists with additional training in aural micro suction earwax removal are qualified to offer micro suction earwax removal services.
