Ear wax gadgets

Ouch! Not only does the poor acting in these infomercials hurt our ears, but so does their "solution" to ear wax. We've received several calls about whether these types of gadgets work. This type of ear wax removal is not recommended. Ear wax which is pressed up against the ear drum should be removed by a professional, preferably at a specialist's office. At ADVENT, we use specialized instruments combined with a high powered microscope to effectively and safely remove ear wax. Other methods, including flushing, are simply not as effective. Additionally, we can provide you with tips on how to prevent ear wax from building up.
