Hearing Loss. You may need Earwax removal using micro-suction.

 Earwax Removal in CARDIFF

Taking care of your hearing is vital! We all want to live life to the fullest and that is why good ear & hearing health is important to people of all ages. There are many factors that can affect our ear health including age, the misuse of earbuds, constant exposure to very loud noises and of course the build-up of wax. If our ear health is compromised then our ability to hear deteriorates, this often causes people to be socially withdrawn.

If you are concerned about your hearing health or you are looking for ear wax removal in Cardiff then please book an appointment at Cyncoed Pharmacy, we can help.

In the UK, it is estimated that around 3.9% of the population require management of ear wax each year with many people having to wait 12 to 16 weeks to get treatment. These statistics are astonishing and due to the lack of treatment availability with the NHS many people simply go on living their lives with this condition, unaware that they can get treated at their local pharmacy. Here at Cyncoed Pharmacy, we want to help our customers with conditions such as this and that is why we have partnered up with TympaHealth to provide easy and accessible Earwax Removal in Cyncoed Cardiff.

Why Hearing Health Matters?

Good ear and hearing health is important to people of all ages and helps us to get the most out of life. When our ability to hear deteriorates it requires more energy for us to listen and participate in daily life, which can lead to becoming socially isolated as people find it harder to engage with loved ones.

Whilst it is common for certain people to attend routine health check-ups such as eye and teeth procedures on a regular basis, our ears are often left forgotten. This should not be the case. Hearing loss has huge social implications on our quality of life. Hearing loss, if left untreated, can lead to increased risk of falls, social isolation, and is also known to be the single largest modifiable risk factor for dementia.

Diagnosis & Treatment With TympaHealth

Thanks to modern technology, TympaHealth treatments and procedures can help to quickly diagnose ear & hearing conditions. Infections, as well as excessive & compacted wax, can be identified & treated quickly & painlessly.

Firstly, you will need to book a free Ear Health Check. This will only take 5 minutes and will be carried out by Nick Thorne  our highly trained ‘Ear Health’ clinician. During the examination, high definition images and videos will be taken. This will identify if there is a blockage, infection, or a build-up of wax, and will determine the appropriate method of treatment. In most cases, the initial problem is simply the presence of excessive wax. If this is the case, you will be prompted to book a further appointment for Ear Wax Removal.

How It Works

Our Earwax Removal Service is quick & painless. Ear micro-suction is the safest and most effective way to remove any debris or earwax. It works by inserting a low-pressure suction probe into the ear. The probe will be controlled by one of our highly trained clinicians who will use the cutting-edge, TympaHealth technology to look clearly into the ear canal and remove the wax.

This procedure is painless and does not involve water being squirted into your ear canal as syringing does. It is a simple and clean procedure.
