Common Symptoms of Ear Wax Buildup

Recognizing the symptoms of ear wax buildup is the first step in seeking timely treatment. Some common signs of ear wax accumulation include:

  • Earache: A feeling of fullness or pain in the ear can be indicative of excess ear wax pressing against the ear canal.
  • Hearing Loss: Reduced hearing ability, often described as a “muffled” sound, is a common symptom of ear wax blockage.
  • Tinnitus: Ringing, buzzing, or whistling sounds in the ear can be caused or exacerbated by ear wax buildup.
  • Dizziness: In some cases, ear wax can affect your balance, leading to dizziness or vertigo.

Our Ear Wax Removal Process

At CheckPoint Urgent Care, we offer a safe and effective ear wax removal process that ensures minimal discomfort and a high success rate. Here’s what you can expect during your visit:

  • Evaluation: Our healthcare professionals will start by examining your ears using specialized tools to assess the extent of the earwax buildup.
  • Treatment Plan: Based on the evaluation, we will create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs. In most cases, we use one of two methods for ear wax removal: irrigation or manual removal.
  • Irrigation: For cases with mild to moderate ear wax buildup, we may use a gentle irrigation technique, where warm water is flushed into the ear to dislodge and remove the wax.
  • Manual Removal: In cases of more stubborn or impacted ear wax, our healthcare professionals may use specialized tools to carefully and safely extract the wax.
  • Post-Procedure Care: After the procedure, we will provide guidance on how to care for your ears and prevent future wax buildup. We may also conduct a follow-up evaluation to ensure that your ears are clear and your symptoms have improved.

Is Ear Wax Removal Safe?

When performed by trained healthcare professionals, ear wax removal is a safe and effective procedure. Attempting to remove ear wax at home with cotton swabs or other objects can often push the wax further into the ear canal, leading to complications or injury. At CheckPoint Urgent Care, you can have peace of mind knowing that our team has the expertise and tools necessary to safely remove ear wax and alleviate your discomfort.
