Earwax Removal

Cerumen, commonly called earwax, plays an important role in the health of our ears and our hearing capacity. Earwax works as a barrier defense from external debris getting deep into our ears, and it also protects the tissue of our ear canals by lubricating and coating them. Earwax also has another incredible function – it contains antimicrobial properties that help protect our ears from infections.

Sometimes we end up with too much earwax, and this can result in temporary hearing loss, earaches, or infections. It’s important to always get impacted earwax professionally removed, since the eardrum is a delicate membrane. Often people end up damaging it by trying to clear their own ear canal at home, and this can lead to bigger problems.

Earwax removal is typically done in our office, although more minor situations might only need a take-home kit to be resolved. Dr. Saltarrelli is trained to inspect and safely remove any earwax that may be causing issues around your hearing health and can bring you the relief you need.

Impacted earwax is the leading cause of conductive hearing loss according to Harvard Medical School. Syringes, spray bottles, and water flossers are time-consuming, messy, and antiquated. OtoSet® is the first automated and FDA Cleared ear cleaning device for clinical use. At the push of a button, liquid flow and micro-suction technology combine to automatically break down and remove impacted earwax for a quick, safe, effective, and mess-free earwax removal procedure.

“My son Caleb attended Autumn Oaks for about two years because he had a speech delay. During his time there his speech and pronunciation improved greatly. Mrs. Eshita (our speech pathologist) is so encouraging, patient and supportive. The entire staff is friendly and great to work with. We cannot thank Autumn Oaks enough for helping our son!!”
