When earwax becomes impacted and you notice increased fullness and/or decreased hearing, you may benefit from an earwax removal procedure. While some over-the-counter techniques are useful for mild cases or to help prevent build-up of earwax, more often than not they are not effective for fully impacted cerumen (earwax) and an in-office treatment may be necessary. If needed, our ENT specialists will carefully remove earwax with specialized instruments. See our separate page on earwax to learn more.
