Wax Guards

Many hearing aids use wax guards to prevent wax from accumulating inside the mechanism.

Every hearing aid manufacturer uses their own type of wax guard.  Your audiologist will provide you with the correct wax guard for your model.

Changing wax guards typically involves:

  1. Removing a single-use wax guard tool from the kit.
  2. Using one end of the tool to extract the old wax guard.
  3. Flipping over the single-use tool.
  4. Inserting the new wax guard.

Please see the below video to help orient you on how to change the wax guard on a custom, In-the-Ear hearing aid:

With Behind-the-Ear or Receiver-in-Canal hearing aids, often there is an extra step in this task:  you must remove the silicone dome from the end of the hearing aid before changing the wax guard.  You might have extra silicone domes to replace your old one. However, the domes last a long time and the old one can usually be put back on after the wax guard is replaced.
