Removing ear wax

Wax formation in ears is natural and safe. Ear wax protects your ears with its antibiotic properties and prevents foreign particles from entering the ears. So, having earwax is good, and the ear will clean itself. However, if there is too much wax build up in your ears, you will need to get it removed.

However, do not try to remove earwax with cotton buds or sharp objects. Inserting such objects in the ears may damage your ears and also push the wax further inside. Gippsland Audiology in Melbourne specializes in ear wax removal. Our audiologists have expertise in the safe removal of earwax.

How do Hearing Aids Help Hearing?

Hearing aids identify sounds in the surrounding environment and convert them into a digital signal. The signal is then amplified or increased to generate amplified sound in the ear through the receiver or a hearing speaker.

A skilled audiologist will conduct a hearing test to evaluate your hearing loss and determine the extent of amplification needed for various sound frequencies. While the hearing aids do not treat your hearing loss, it improves your hearing experience by enhancing the sound range as well as offering clarity to sounds and speech.

Several types of hearing aids are available from numerous manufacturers. These vary in styles, features, and functionality. Some are so small that they remain hidden in your ears, while others can be connected by Bluetooth to mobile phones and come with rechargeable batteries.

After your hearing test results, your audiologist will recommend the best hearing aid for your specific needs, budget, and lifestyle.
