Burning Mouth Syndrome

Burning mouth syndrome is a condition characterised by a persistent burning or fiery sensation in the mouth.

Discomfort can affect various parts of the sot tissues lining the mouth such as the palate, lips, tongue and gums. While the exact cause of this condition is not known, it is often associated with underlying medical conditions such as diabetes, nutritional deficiencies, or hormonal imbalances. Additionally, certain medications, oral habits, and psychological factors like stress or anxiety can contribute to the development of burning mouth syndrome. Despite its name, burning mouth syndrome does not cause visible signs of damage to the mouth, making it a perplexing and challenging condition to diagnose and treat.

Symptoms of burning mouth syndrome include: burning sensation on the tip of the tongue changes in taste for no apparent reason feeling like your mouth is dry

Symptoms of burning mouth syndrome typically last for at least 2 hours a day and for more than 3 months and worsen with each day throughout this period.
Symptoms can range from mild to severe.
Symptoms may be present continuously or intermittently.
Women are more likely to develop burning mouth syndrome than men.
Burning mouth syndrome is most common in women aged 50 and over.

There is no known definitive cause of burning mouth syndrome.  It is more commonly associated in people with sleep disorders and can be a side effect of certain medications. Burning Mouth Sydnraome is possibly linked to stress, dry mouth, infection, poor diet, dental irritations, and neuropathic pain.

If you have burning mouth syndrome, here are some things you can do about it: Visit your dentist for a check-up and review of your health and dental history. Your dentist may want to refer you to an Oral Pathologist for some tests, such as looking for signs of excessive dryness in your mouth or taking blood samples to test for bacteria, fungi or viruses along with referral to your GP for a medical review.

Buning mouth syndrome can be eased with some medications that can reduce or alleviate the neuropathic pain.  Oral Rinses or Soothing Saliva Substitutes can help relieve burning mouth syndrome symptoms. Taking Nutritional Supplements such as Alfa-linoleic Acid can help. Some people find that stress management or counselling can help with their burning mouth syndrome.
