Simple procedure for removing foreign materials or excess earwax from the ears. Hardened or excessive earwax in the ear can result in a blockage in the ear, which can cause ringing in the ears, earaches, or even temporary hearing loss. Removing excess earwax safely minimizes the risk of damage to the ear, since the buildup can cause damage to the canal and eardrum over time, permanently affecting your hearing.
If there is a foreign material in your ear, such as an insect or food, you will want to remove the item safely and quickly before it can cause damage to the canal or move deeper into the ear. It is best to have a professional physician perform a proper bilateral ear irrigation to minimize the risk of damage.
