However, wax can sometimes build up making it difficult for the ear to self-clean. Wax will commonly build up in those with narrow ear canals, hearing aid and ear plug users and can become more bothersome as we age. These factors can stop the wax working its way to the outer ear, causing it to gradually accumulate.
For hearing aid users, this build-up can prevent the amplified sound reaching the eardrum, or may cause the aid to whistle (feedback).
Our method of wax removal is ideal for anyone with a history of eardrum perforation, middle ear problems, previous ear surgery or discomfort with the syringing method.
