More often than not, using cotton swabs contributes to tighter impaction of excess wax. Under normal circumstances, earwax should evacuate your ear canal on its own. If you suspect impaction, contact us to schedule an appointment.
With every hearing test, we conduct a physical examination of your ear canals using an otoscope—the same tool your general practitioner uses. This ensures that we discover any wax buildup that may be contributing to hearing loss, and remove it before the hearing test.
