For pollen-plagued patients sick of their allergy shot regimen, Allerdent might seem worth moving forward with, even in its early stages. The one obstacle they may face, however, is access. "The extracts that are used in this treatment, just like the extracts in shots, are FDA approved," Reisacher says. But the FDA has only approved these extracts in shots. That makes Allerdent an "off-label" usage, which insurance companies don't typically pay for. While prices vary (the cost is set by your prescribing physician, not Allovate), Reisacher compares it to a Starbucks coffee a day.
