Believe it or not, earwax buildup is often the cause of hearing loss!
Earwax — officially called cerumen — is key to a healthy ear. It collects dirt, debris and bacteria, preventing unwanted foreign bodies from entering the ear. It also has lubrication properties to keep the ears from getting dry and itchy. Finally, it acts as an antifungal and antibacterial, helping to fight infections in and around our ears.
Earwax Buildup Can Damage Hearing Aids and cause them to malfunction.
At Joy Hearing Health Clinic, we have the tools and expertise needed to safely and properly remove excess earwax, whether it’s causing hearing loss or not.
