Earwax is naturally occurring inside your ears and has many healthy properties. However, removal is necessary when a large amount of wax develops and blocks sound from traveling down the canal. Earwax build-ups can have a mild to significant impact on your hearing.
Cotton Q-tips are not recommended because often times wax becomes pushed deeper down the ear canal, toward the ear drum. This can cause pain and further impact the wax, making removal more difficult. Ear candling is ineffective, dangerous, and never recommended by professionals. Our canals are delicate and can easily be damaged, so never insert anything in your ear. If you suspect you have a wax build up, our specialists will remove it and teach you how to prevent another build-up.
