Professional Earwax Removal In East Orlando & Winter Springs, FL
We have all experienced the feeling of blocked or clogged ears at some point. In most cases, this is temporary or can be relieved naturally.
If your ears don’t unclog themselves within 24 hours, then you may have impacted earwax. The good news is we’re equipped to solve this problem for you and have been doing so for the residents of Central Florida since 1993.
It’s normal for our bodies to produce earwax, and it’s also essential. This is a natural substance that we all use to protect against bacteria and fungi that can grow within the ear.
If these growths go untreated, then they could cause ear infections.
Too much earwax can lead to other issues as well. Sudden or temporary hearing loss, dizziness, headaches, balance issues, and even ear pain can all be a result of untreated, impacted earwax.
As hearing care professionals, we understand the cause of impacted earwax can vary. However, the most common cause is straightforward to identify, which is the incorrect use of cotton swabs.
These common household items are the culprit behind most cases of impacted earwax. They are more successful at pushing your earwax deeper in your ear than they are at removing it.
This is directly linked to causing buildup and blockage.
After caring for over 50,000 patients in East Orlando and Winter Springs, there have been a few noteworthy myths and misconceptions around the causes of blocked ears and earwax removal methods.
We want to set the record straight to help local Floridians make the right choice for their hearing healthcare.

The Myths & Misconceptions Surrounding Earwax
MYTH #1 – I produce an abnormal amount of earwax.
We hear this a lot, and we are sorry to report that this is rarely the case. Your body knows exactly how much earwax to produce to protect your ears. Attempting to remove earwax yourself can sometimes have the opposite effect. Your body will think you need more and try to overcompensate.
MYTH #2 – Cotton swabs will unclog my ears.
Using cotton swabs is almost a surefire way to create impacted earwax. Unfortunately, this is a pattern developed early in our childhood and can be a tough habit to break. Swabbing too deep can lead to irreparable physical damage as well.
MYTH #3 – I’ll just look online for instructional videos on how to remove my earwax.
Save the online tutorials for improving your golf swing or making a delicious dinner. Medical practices should be left to the professionals for your own good. Online videos don’t consider your medical history and specific needs. You may end up doing more harm than good.
MYTH #4 – My ears will naturally fix themselves over time.
When blocked ears occur, it is usually a signal that your body is sending. It’s trying to tell you that something is wrong and to seek help. Ignoring medical issues is never a good thing.
Let’s Explain How Earwax Removal Works
At Preferred Hearing Centers, we have a passion for helping our patients lead a healthy and fulfilling life. Our experienced team in Winter Springs and East Orlando consists of some of the most dedicated professionals in the industry.
We have developed a successful methodology to ensure the proper cleaning of your ears every time.
Here is a detailed breakdown of each step we take to clean your ears and get you back to living the life you love.
#1 – Introductory Conversation
What separates us from online videos and other hearing centers is our attention to detail. We want to have all the information about your hearing, including your history, hearing environments, and specific issues. This will give us a framework on how to proceed safely and effectively.
#2 – Physical Ear Inspection
We have all the latest and safest equipment to remove your impacted earwax optimally. Using a combination of an Earigator, Head Loop, and Manual Removal, we can pinpoint the exact location of the blockage and judge the best method for removal. Our offices are also equipped with monitors so you can follow along every step of the way.
#3 – Goodbye Earwax
After we have located the blockage and its severity, we can confidently remove it. Flushing it out is the most common way. We use a small syringe to introduce water in your ear, which loosens the blockage and makes it easy to remove the wax. We can also use a curette tool – a tiny scoop used to reach more stubborn blockages.
#4 – That’s It!
The best part about the process is realizing how much sound you were missing with blocked ears.
