Often over time and with use of ear buds or Q-Tips we can develop a significant amount of ear wax within our ears. Other methods of cleaning the ear including candleing and flushing out the ears can be uncomfortable and can cause damage to the eardrum. Using specialized instruments, micro suction, and sometimes a microscope for visualization we are able to professionally clear wax impaction. This is a great service for older patients who are wearing hearing aids and often need their ears cleaned every 6 months.
This is a service covered by Manitoba Health. No referral is required. 3 days prior to your visit please place 3-4 drops of olive or mineral oil in each ear prior to bed. This will facilitate with the cleaning.
