Great! Awesome staff. Compassionate & knowledgeable physician.
Acadian Allergy Center is excited to now offer our patients another form of treatment for their respiratory allergies. The treatment, called oral mucosal immunotherapy (or OMIT), is meant to fit easily into the patient’s daily routine. You can literally brush away your allergies! Call our office today to see if Allerdent® is the right fit for you!
What is OMIT therapy?
It is a 90-day prescription for Allerdent®, which is a toothpaste that is mixed in our office and is used to treat patients for their respiratory allergies.
What are the benefits?
This treatment plan is the ultimate time and money saver. After doing your first treatment in the office, you can take them home with you. No need for weekly visits. You can brush away your allergies in the comfort of your own home!
Can it replace my normal toothpaste?
Yes. It is a fully functional toothpaste that will clean your teeth. OMIT based Allerdent® contains same ingredients that are used in standard, non-fluoridated toothpastes. Allerdent® behaves, tastes, and smells like standard toothpastes. We will be offering both a berry and mint flavor. Since the dosing with Allerdent® is generally recommended to be 2 minutes only once per day, patients can use their own brand of toothpaste at other brushings.
Can I travel with it?
Yes. Since the toothpaste is stable and only needs to be kept at room temperature, you can take it with you on a plane, to summer camp, vacations, college, etc.
