What is sublingual immunotherapy?
Immunotherapy treats the cause of allergies by giving small doses of what a person is allergic to, which increases “immunity” or tolerance to the allergen and reduces the allergic symptoms.
Unlike allergy shots, sublingual immunotherapy is given as drops under the tongue.
It is very safe, for both adults and children. Patients take the drops in the convenience of their own homes instead of going to a doctor’s office every week for shots. An excellent alternative to allergy shots and medication.
More than 80% of our patients allergic to pollen, dust mite, mold and pets benefit from this program.
