Why microsuction?

Updated: Apr 30, 2023

Microsuction is the best way to remove ear wax. There are lots of methods to remove ear wax; from ear candles and irrigation or syringing of the ear canal, to the dreaded cotton bud. So why is microsuction the best method? It's simple - ear wax removal is done under vision by a trained professional.

Why do we advise against ear syringing, irrigation and ear candles?

These methods involve introducing water or heat into the ear canal. This can cause infection, pain and damage to the ear canal and/or eardrum. Through my practice I have met numerous patients who have had long term problems with their ears due to excessive use of non-recommended methods for earwax removal. Microsuction is safe and evidence based. The choice is simple!
