New Ear Cleaning Service from Memorial Hearing in Houston
Ear wax buildup is a common problem that can be caused by a myriad of factors, leading to frustrating symptoms and even severe pain or damage. And although some people attempt at-home ear wax removal methods, the safest and most effective option is to get help from a professional. Not only does an audiologist have the specialized expertise to remove wax buildup without damaging the ear, but they also have professional-grade tools to deliver optimal results.
At Memorial Hearing, we are excited to introduce an innovative new “ear spa” treatment that utilizes the Earigator™, the world’s most advanced system for eliminating ear wax buildup. The procedure is safe, free from discomfort, and can be completed in just a few minutes, offering significant improvements when compared to traditional methods.
Excess ear wax doesn’t have to affect your quality of life – especially not when treatment can be simple with Memorial Hearing’s Houston ear spa. Here’s everything you need to know about ear wax buildup and how to resolve it, including symptoms, causes, and how the Earigator™ can help.
Signs and symptoms of ear wax buildup
It is completely normal for your ear wax to vary in appearance, ranging in color from light yellow to dark brown. But if you experience any of the following symptoms, you could have a buildup of excess wax that needs to be treated:
- Sudden hearing loss, including partial hearing loss (usually temporary)
- Tinnitus, which is a ringing/buzzing in the ears
- The sensation of fullness in the ear
In some cases, ear wax buildup can cause an ear infection. The symptoms of an ear infection include:
- Severe ear pain
- Pain in one or both ears that does not subside
- Drainage from one or both ears
- Odor from the ear
- Hearing loss
