Build up or pain in your ear? Wax removal could be the answer

At Maria Brown Hearing Clinic we offer manual extraction and microsuction wax removal techniques. 

Officially known as cerumen, earwax is part of the ear's own cleaning system, designed to stop incoming dust, dirt, bacteria - even bugs - in the ear canal and ferry them out again.

The wax and trapped debris are propelled along by the movements of the jaw, at about the same speed that fingernails grow. When it reaches the ear opening, the wax usually dries, flakes and falls out, often without the human host noticing.

The process isn't always smooth. Having too much earwax, or wax that is too dry or too sticky, can create a buildup. Much of that is genetically determined.

Tens of thousands of Tasmanian's suffer from excess wax build up in their ears.
