Could safe and effective wax removal be the answer to your hearing problems? Ear wax or “Cerumen”, is normal. Its presence is in the canal is healthy, as it helps to protect the ear. Occasionally as wax migrates from ear canal it can cause a blockage, preventing sound from travelling down the ear canal to the eardrum. This can cause temporary hearing loss.
Impacted wax can also adversely affect the performance of hearing aids. For example, it can cause feedback or whistling, or cause the instrument to become faulty.
