Manual removal involves the use of medical instruments to gently remove the wax, that may be moist, or if the ear canal is narrow or irregularly shaped.
Manual Removal can take between 15 to 30 minutes per ear depending on the level and hardness of wax.
Manual ear wax removal is a safe, traditional method of cleaning ears.
It is particularly useful for people with narrow ear canal entrances or protruding ear canals, which can make it difficult to insert an irrigation or micro suction device at the proper angle.
Manual ear wax removal is also often recommended if the wax in your ears is particularly moist or dry. The process involves removing wax out of your ear using a probe or wax hook and forceps. It is very comfortable, quick and pain-free.
We often recommend micro suction as a very comfortable and clean alternative to manual ear wax removal. It is suitable for everyone, even if you have recently had an ear infection, and can be completed in as little as five minutes per ear, depending on the amount and type of wax.
Our practitioners may often use a combination of microsuction and manual removal to optimise treatment and provide you the best care.
