Hearing Doctors Offers Professional Earwax Removal - The Earigator

Jun 21, 2021 Hearing Doctors Offers Professional Earwax Removal - The Earigator

Earwax removal is an important part of your hearing health. At Hearing Doctors, we are always looking for the safest and most effective way to serve our patients and are excited to be the only provider in the Washington, DC area to offer treatments using the Earigator.

The build-up of earwax is not uncommon. It tends to be more prevalent in older adults and especially in hearing aid wearers. The daily use of hearing aids or earbuds can prevent earwax from naturally migrating out of the ear. You can now ensure your ears are clean and clear at each routine visit.


What is the EarigatorTM

It’s a lavage system that uses warm water to safely and effectively rinse out cerumen (earwax) from the ear. The system incorporates irrigation and video otoscopy so your hearing health professional can monitor what is happening in the ear canal at all times. 


Warm, Pressure Controlled Water

The water used to flush the ear is preheated to an average body temperature (98 degrees +/- 3). This temperature offers the best experience for our patients, avoiding temperature extremes which if too cold can cause vertigo and if too hot can burn you. 


Safe and Pain-Free

Safe for patients of all ages and more comfortable than traditional earwax removal methods. The temperature and amount of pressure are adjustable and are controlled by the hearing health provider to ensure maximum comfort. 


Your Hearing Care All in One Place

If earwax build-up is noted during a routine hearing evaluation or consultation the EarigatorTM allows an immediate solution. You no longer need to be referred offsite for earwax removal services, which typically delayed your treatment by days or weeks. 


From removing earwax buildup to diagnosing hearing issues in children and adults, Hearing Doctors is your trusted hearing healthcare provider in the Washington, DC Metro area. We’re here to help you navigate the latest treatments and products with ease, providing individualized and compassionate care.
