The Microsuction Ear wax removal technique at Keynsham Hearing Centre, Bristol/Bath/Frome, video demonstrates how the most popular method of wax removal is performed at the Keynsham Hearing Centre. The Microsuction Ear wax removal takes out all the lumps that are causing the problem but you are left with a certain amount of residual wax which forms the natural lining of the ear. We also use the traditional water irrigation method if this is deemed appropriate or if you prefer. Hearing tests and hearing aids are dispensed from our Keynsham centre.

Microsuction is gentle

Checking the ear

Very easy and painless

All done within minutes

At the Keynsham Hearing Centre we know all about ear wax removal. We use the Micros-Suction technique and the traditional water ear irrigation technique. Micro-Suction is painless as you can see in our videos and is very popular now with our clients, however sometimes we would recommend water irrigation is some cases.

What is ear wax removal?

We are often asked why we have ear wax. It is not as a result of poor hygiene as many people think, but a clever mix of ingredients which have an important role in protecting and cleaning our ears.

In addition to trapping dirt and any creepy crawlies, ear wax lubricates the skin, and provides anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties – ensuring the ear is kept healthy.

Ear wax naturally moves out of our ears. In fact, every time we talk, chew or yawn we are encouraging this process. Whilst many people remain unaffected by ear wax problems, ear wax can be a real issue for some.

So how would you know if you had an ear wax build up if you can’t see it?

The most common symptoms are a blocked sensation, a drop in hearing, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), dizziness and discomfort. The best way to clean the ears is to use a warm washcloth when in the shower, and gently clean the outer ear up to the opening of the ear canal only. NEVER use cotton buds as you could damage your ears. They also may compact the ear wax – making it impossible to come out in the usual way. Also, using cotton buds stimulates the ear canal to produce more wax and exacerbate the problem!

Keynsham Micro-Suction 2019

Right, just so you know you are in completely in control, for any reason whatsoever , you merely say STOP.

Apparently I have a tendency to tickle in peoples ears, and that can trigger a cough reflex, so instead of stumbling as to what you do, just say STOP, I’m instantly out of your ear & you have a really good cough.

I have a good reputation for not hurting people.

I’m just going to get a specular this helps to straighten your ear out so we can get a better view through the channel.

O.K. lets just get this out of the way, this is an ideal job for loops, So what we will do now is get sorted with a probe, So everything is ultra clean and safe Now some people are completely unaware of of what we are going to do

You may or may not have watched some videos, I have a number of people that have watched various videos, what can be useful sometimes is.

If you can place your hand gently on here, If you look down at the probe, just to get an idea that it’s nice and gentle.

Right.. How does that feel?

So much different, I can really hear the difference. It was brilliant, I would definitely recommend it

No pain? No discomfort?

Nothing at all it was so easily done

I can hear so much more now

Great! That’s what we are after happy smiley clients.
