If you are experiencing difficulty hearing, earaches or related symptoms, you may have a buildup of ear wax in your ears. At Bakersfield Sinus Center, we offer ear wax removal to residents of Bakersfield, Porterville, CA and neighboring areas.
What is Ear Wax Removal?
Ear wax removal is an in-office treatment in which we remove ear wax from a patient’s ears to eliminate an ear wax blockage. When ear wax builds up in the ears, it can cause earaches, difficulty hearing, or drainage. These symptoms can easily be confused for an ear infection or other conditions, even though the culprit may only be ear wax. Fortunately, ear wax removal is a very simple process that we are proud to offer at Bakersfield Sinus Center. We routinely provide this treatment to help patients find relief from ear wax blockage.

What is the Ear Wax Removal Treatment Like?
Our approach to ear wax removal will depend on the severity of your condition and other health-related factors. In some cases, ear wax blockages can be eliminated by flushing the ears with warm water or other fluids. At other times, we may choose to remove the ear wax by hand using a small, specialized tool. In any case, ear wax removal requires no anesthesia whatsoever. It is a comfortable procedure that typically takes less than 30 minutes to perform.
What is the Ear Wax Removal Recovery Like?
There is no recovery period necessary after ear wax removal. However, if you have been suffering from an ear wax blockage for a while, your ears may need a few days to adjust to their normal sensitivity. Some patients may experience some initial soreness in the ears due to this reason. But, you can expect to return to all normal activities following your ear wax removal treatment.
What Results Can I Expect from the Ear Wax Removal Treatment?
Ear wax removal produces instant results, as all ear wax is removed during the treatment. You can expect an immediate reduction in earaches and hearing difficulties. If you frequently experience ear wax blockage, we may recommend regular treatments or medication in order to prevent symptoms from repeatedly affecting you.
