What is ear wax?

Ear wax is instrumental in protecting and cleaning of the ears. 

It is a natural substance that is produced as a skin gland secretion inside the ear canal. Ear wax helps in the prevention of foreign bodies from making their way into the ear canal. 

Ear wax also contains antibacterial properties. Ear wax is a natural way in which the body protects and cleans itself and it is not harmful at all. Despite this, there is a saying that too much of a good thing can be dangerous and this also applies to ear wax. 

Excessive secretion and buildup of ear wax can sometimes cause problems like discomfort in the ear, tinnitus, and hearing loss.

If you take a hearing test, it will empower your audiologist with pertinent information about your hearing problem. 

Before selecting hearing aids, a hearing test will be able to evaluate if you have hearing loss. The test will also be able to determine the type and the degree of hearing loss along with the probable cause. 

With a hearing test, the audiologist will be able to determine what kind of sounds you are unable to hear. This is important as it varies from one person to the other. Hearing aids are specifically programmed for the person wearing it, so a generic hearing aid will not suit everybody.
