While many patients see earwax as something to remove, it can be a sign of healthy ears when found in the proper amount.
Hygiene and Wax Removal Treatment
Many people use a cotton swab to remove wax from their ears without knowing that this can cause wax or other particles to be moved deeper into the ears. This can lead to ear infections, eardrum ruptures, or even hearing loss. While cotton swabs can sometimes help, it’s essential to have an experienced provider perform deeper ear cleaning when needed.
SFENTA offers multiple treatment methods to remove wax and cleanse the ears. The first method is to use a curet, which is a small curved tool. When used inside the ear, the curve of the curet can latch onto the wax and gently remove it. Another method is removal through suction or with the use of water. Your physician may use a WaterPik® or a syringe filled with water to flush the wax out.
