At Advanced Family Medical Care, we are proud to offer ear lavage services to our patients. You may need an ear lavage if you are experiencing muffled hearing, dizziness, ringing in the ears, and/or a persistent earache due to a buildup of earwax in the ear. When this blockage hinders your overall wellness, you can trust our team to help remove it in a safe, professional manner.
During your ear lavage, we will use either a rubber bulb syringe, water pick, or a triggered squirt bottle and cannula to flush the ear with warm water. In some cases, it may be beneficial for us to gently scrape out the earwax or remove it through suction using a small vacuum.
It is important that you not try to remove the blockage yourself, as oftentimes patients end up pushing the blockage further into the ear canal and making it harder to remove.
