Ear Wax Removal Essex.
Microsuction is a method of ear wax removal. Ear wax is removed using a gentle suction and a high power microscope to view the ear canal and drum. It is the preferred method used by Ear Nose and Throat Doctors and is available from our Chelmsford, Ramsden Heath and Upminster practices.
Other methods of ear wax removal, such as syringing, might also be effective but can carry some inconvenience, such as dosing with oil for several weeks prior to treatment. Risks, such as damage to the ear drum and/or ear pain are also reduced by using microsuction wax removal in preference to irrigation.
Before booking on behalf of a child under the age of 7 please call us first to ensure you are clear on what the procedure entails.
Microsuction is £85 for one or both ears. If no wax is discovered we’ll only charge you a consultancy fee of £25.
