The most common hearing problems that people suffer with, tend to be as a result of wax blockages. In many cases wax will leave the ear naturally, however on occasion this process can be restricted and require manual removal. It is natural to have wax in the ear, it is important because it has many protected properties. However, from time to time an over secretion of oil or dead skin in the ear can result in more viscous and troublesome wax. As well as reduced hearing excessive wax can also result in Tinnitus. Having regular ear assessments is important.
There are a few different techniques for removal but we specialise in microsuction. Typically there are long waiting lists for ear wax removal at your GP and some practices have stopped doing it completely, however at the Chalfont Hearing Centre we can offer same day appointments (subject to availability). The cost of wax removal costs £60 (one ear) – £75 (two ears). Please call us on 01494 765144 to book an appointment.
