Premier Hearing offers professional micro-suction service to safely and gently remove a build-up of ear wax from the ear canal. Ear Health examinations:  Audiological evaluation, speech testing, hearing aids, hearing rehabilitation, and tinnitus management.  We serve Harrogate and surrounding areas both at our dedicated clinic, or in the comfort of your own home.

Microsuction is the safest way to remove excessive ear wax, as stated by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence. The procedure is suitable for most people and experiencing any side effects after the treatment is very rare.

Some symptoms you may experience prior to the treatment are:

Earache, Difficulty in hearing, Itchiness, Dizziness, Ear infection, Tinnitus, which can be sounds or high-pitched ringing coming from inside the ear.

Hearing loss is a complex disability where one is isolated from what is occurring around them. There are underlying health issues that can be attributed to the deterioration of hearing such as diabetes, noise exposure, smoking, vascular issues. It is such a debilitating disability where it is not visible to the human eye. 

Hearing problems can become brain problems as the brain needs access to the full perspective of the sound scene to work as it should. Not receiving this can lead to brain problems. Brain problems can become life problems, when access to the right input is limited, a hearing problem can lead to serious problems in life.
