Hearing loss falls into two categories, either “sensorineural” or “conductive”. Sensorineural hearing loss involves damage to the inner ear, while conductive hearing loss has to do with a problem in the middle or outer ear that prevents sound waves from reaching the inner ear. Earwax is a common blockage that contributes to conductive hearing loss. Proper, routine cleaning can help prevent problematic earwax buildup.
