Ear Wax Removal

We know how painful and frustrating ear discomfort can be, so we have developed a solution, our Ear Wax Removal Clinic at Dee Street!

Do you suffer from.. difficulty hearing? Pain or discomfort? Blocked sensation in the ear canal? You may need some ear wax removed!

At Dee St Medical Centre, we understand that ear problems can be both uncomfortable and frustrating! This is why we now offer an Ear Wax Removal clinic with our nurses, as a quick and effective solution for patients experiencing ear wax build up.

What is Ear Wax?

Ear Wax is an oily material that is produced by glands within the ear canal. It is one of the body's naturally occurring substances and is incredibly useful. Maintaining a healthy level of ear wax is key. Too little and you might experience bacterial infections, too much and it can block the ear canal causing a blocked feeling or temporary hearing loss. Ear Wax build-up can also cause tinnitus, vertigo, and a feeling of pressure in the ears.

How it works

Our nurses are trained to examine your ears using a specialised microscope with an attached light. If there is a build-up of wax or debris, this will be removed using a combination of tools including an ear speculum, manual instruments, and a micro-suction machine if required. We use state-of-the-art equipment to ensure the safe and effective removal of wax. The entire procedure is usually quick and comfortable, and you should feel and see dramatic improvement in your hearing immediately afterwards.


How much does it cost?

The Ear Wax Removal Clinic costs $60.00

What does it feel like?

People often describe the procedure as a light tickling on the ear canal with windy, squeaky, or popping sounds if the suction machine is required. In rare circumstances, the procedure may be a little uncomfortable if your ear canal is sensitive or enflamed. 

How long does the procedure take?

The procedure will usually take twenty to forty minutes, but this will vary from patient to patient.
