Earwax Removal Professionals in Midland, TX

Are your ears feeling a bit stuffy, are sounds or voices muted, or your ears are aching? If so, there’s a good chance you are experiencing impacted earwax.

Although earwax (cerumen) is nature’s way of cleaning your ears by attracting and capturing dirt, dust and anything else that might be trapped inside your ears, it can build up and become impacted.

Dizziness, balance problems, headaches, ear pain, and sudden hearing loss, as well as infections, are all common symptoms related to impacted earwax, often necessitating professional earwax extraction.

Believe it or not, the most common cause of impacted earwax comes from people using cotton swabs or some other object (it scares us to imagine what) to remove their own earwax, making things worse by pushing it farther down the ear canal.

For safe, professional earwax removal in Midland, get in touch with an earwax removal expert at All About Hearing and start prioritizing your hearing healthcare today.

Several Common Myths Related to Earwax Removal

Over the years, we’ve heard plenty of myths, misconceptions, and treatment suggestions our patients use when it comes to removing their own earwax. To set the record straight and encourage you to seek professional help, we’d like to respond to several of the most common ones.

Myth #1 – My ears make too much earwax!

Your ears make exactly the amount of earwax you need. Removing it too often, signals the cells that produce earwax to step up production because your ear canal is getting too dry. Ear cleaning should only be required for the outer ear alone.

Myth #2 – Cotton swabs are perfect for safe earwax removal

Not only are they not perfect for removing earwax, they can be dangerous. What you’re more apt to do is push the earwax farther down the ear canal until it becomes impacted. In addition to packing it against the eardrum where it can cause infection, you run the risk of piercing your eardrum if you get too aggressive.

Myth #3 – There are some great earwax blockage removal tips in online videos

If you’re knitting a sweater, making a pecan pie, building a dollhouse, or checking out product reviews, online videos are a great place to get advice and guidance, but they’re rarely produced by healthcare or hearing care professionals. Skip the online video tips for removing your own earwax so you don’t make things worse or cause permanent damage to your ears. Instead, trust our earwax extraction specialists to handle it safely.

Myth #4 – My ears will sort things out for themselves

During the process of chewing and talking, earwax travels to the outer ear where it falls out on its own or is easy to wipe away. However, if you’re experiencing ear pain, muted sound, and stuffiness, those are signs that something is wrong and you’ll need some help from an earwax removal expert who can provide professional earwax extraction safely and effectively without doing any damage to your ears.
