Earwax buildup is not an unfamiliar health concern. Still, it is often overlooked despite its prevalence, especially among the elderly and regular users of hearing aids or earbuds.

These devices can inadvertently prevent the natural migration of earwax out of the ear canal, leading to discomfort and potential hearing issues.

At Hearing Doctors, we prioritize your ear health and ensure they are clean and clear at each routine visit with our advanced earwax removal services, particularly using the innovative Earigator system.

Earigator™: A Revolution in Earwax Removal

What is the Earigator, and why does it signify a new era in ear health maintenance? The Earigator is a state-of-the-art lavage system that employs warm water to safely and effectively rinse out cerumen (earwax) from the ear.

This ingenious system integrates irrigation and video otoscopy, allowing your hearing healthcare professional to visually monitor your ear canal’s condition throughout the earwax removal procedure. This real-time observation ensures precise and comprehensive removal of earwax.

A Revolution in Earwax Removal

Patient Comfort First: Warm, Pressure Controlled Water

Patient comfort and safety are our top priorities. That’s why the Earigator system is designed to utilize water preheated to a body-friendly temperature (98 degrees +/- 3) to carry out the earwax removal process.

This measured temperature control allows for the best earwax removal experience for our patients. It also helps us prevent any potential complications linked with temperature extremes. For example, water that is too cold can provoke vertigo, while water that is too hot can cause burns.

Safe, Efficient, and Pain-Free Earwax Removal

Traditional earwax removal methods, such as syringing, can sometimes be uncomfortable or even painful for patients. In contrast, the Earigator is engineered to be safe and comfortable for patients across all age groups.

Our health providers can adjust the temperature and the amount of pressure applied during the process to ensure maximum comfort. Furthermore, the Earigator system’s effectiveness at clearing earwax reduces the number of required sessions, contributing to a more efficient and stress-free experience for our patients.

All-Inclusive Hearing Care: No More Waiting for Referrals

For anyone who has experienced an earwax blockage, the usual process of getting a referral and then waiting for an appointment at an offsite earwax removal service can be frustrating and time consuming.

At Hearing Doctors, we believe in providing comprehensive hearing care under one roof. If we notice earwax buildup during your routine hearing evaluation or consultation, the Earigator system allows us to provide an immediate solution. This all-inclusive care approach effectively eliminates the need for offsite referrals, which typically delayed your treatment by days or even weeks.
