Three primary methods are employed for ear wax removal, each chosen based on the specific issue and the audiologist’s preference. The three commonly utilised techniques include:
- Physical Removal: This approach involves the use of a specialized instrument to carefully extract accumulated ear wax.
- Irrigation: Employing a syringe-like instrument, water is introduced into the ear with controlled pressure, facilitating the cleansing process.
- Microsuction: An advanced, painless method utilising gentle suction for earwax removal, with the process visually monitored through a video otoscope.
