Burning mouth syndrome is a condition where one feels a burn in the mouth. The burning sensation can be felt anywhere in the mouth. The feeling can be on the tongue, gums, roof of the mouth, or even on the cheeks. No test can determine you are suffering from burning mouth syndromes. Still, our specialists will likely examine your mouth, review your health history, or ask for a full description of your symptoms, oral care, and oral habits.
Treatment for burning mouth syndrome
Treatment for burning mouth syndrome depends on whether you are suffering from which types of burning mouth, primary or secondary burning mouth syndromes. Below are more information on each type.
Secondary burning mouth syndrome
