Again on the subject of ear wax ...
A sticky subject, but we get asked about ear wax all the time.
How do you know you have wax build-up?
Do you feel "stuffed up" or congested? Do you feel like your sinuses
are plugged up? If so, your ears MIGHT be plugged with cerumen, or
wax as it is commonly called.
How often should your ears be cleaned?
We encourage you to have your ears checked for wax buildup a minimum
of twice per year, or more frequently IF you have had ear wax
buildup in the past.
Does ear wax cause hearing loss?
Ear wax (cerumen) is an oily, fatty substance that protects the ear
canal. Each individual creates different amounts of wax. It is
possible for the wax to partially or completely occlude the ear
canal. Typically, this can result in a mild-to-moderate hearing
loss, and once the wax is removed, the hearing is restored. We can
let you know if you have a wax buildup and how it can be removed.
