Oral Mucosal Immunotherapy (OMIT)

Treat Your Allergic Rhinitis From Home

If you need a convenient treatment for your allergic rhinitis, consult with Dr. Mandel about Oral Mucosal Immunotherapy (OMIT). This innovative form of immunotherapy uses a custom-formulated toothpaste derived from the same allergenic extracts found in traditional allergy shots. Upon analyzing your allergy, Dr. Mandel will formulate and prescribe a toothpaste that treats multiple allergies at once. You get a convenient solution to persistent and frustrating allergies without the need for regular doctor visits or stressful allergy shots.

Overview of OMIT

Oral Mucosal Immunotherapy treats allergic rhinitis by delivering immunotherapeutic agents directly to patients’ oral cavities. It’s remarkably effective because the mucous membranes in your mouth contain the highest amount of Langerhans cells (LC) in your body. These are cells that regulate the immune system by processing and delivering antigens to other cells in your body. The custom-formulated concentration of OMIT on these specialized immune cells ensures an effective outcome for immediate and long-term relief in each individual patient.

Start Feeling Better Today!

Immunotherapy has been around for decades. Starting as allergy shots (subcutaneous immunotherapy or SCIT) that introduced tiny amounts of allergens to the body, it’s evolved to sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT). While both of these types of immunotherapy are fine, they aren’t the most convenient. Many patients are likely to resist several years of monthly shots. 

OMIT offers a more convenient treatment routine that is easy to fit into your schedule and offers advantages over existing approaches to SCIT Immunotherapy. With allergens blooming throughout the year in Florida, there is no reason to continue suffering from perennial or seasonal allergic rhinitis. Talk to Dr. Mandel about your custom-formulated OMIT prescription today!

Extraordinarily Effective Immunotherapy

Not only is OMIT less invasive than allergy shots, but OMIT also offers the same levels of symptom relief. A 2016 study found that participants were almost 20% more likely to complete OMIT than traditional forms of immunotherapy. Completing a full course of treatment leads to improved results like reduced or eliminated allergy symptoms and a better quality of life. 

OMIT can produce these kinds of results because it introduces immunotherapy into patients’ already existing activities. Everyone brushes their teeth. Now – rather than simply cleaning your mouth and protecting your gums – you can also train your immune system to withstand allergens. This may sound like a minor advancement, but if you’re one of the millions of Americans suffering from allergic rhinitis, it’s a game-changer.
