Cerumen (ear wax) Removal.
Cerumen (Sir – roo - men) is the secretion of substance that acts as a lubricant for the outer ear canal. Cerumen has antibacterial properties and is necessary for protection against ear infections. Much like mucus in the nasal passages, cerumen is meant to be present in the ear canal. For the most part, cerumen in the ear canal should be left alone and yes, that means not using Q-tips. Cerumen becomes problematic when the accumulation becomes solid and causes a blockage in the canal, resulting in a temporary loss of hearing. Blockages occur due to small canals, collapsing ear canals, too much ear washing, persistent use of Q-tips and use of ear molds or plugs.
Our office is equipped with an high-magnification microscope that allows us to gently remove the cerumen safely.
