Burning mouth syndrome (BMS) can affect people differently. Some people feel continuous pain every day. Others have described an increase of pain throughout the day.
BMS usually affects the top of the tongue, lower lip, and roof of the mouth.
A few of the symptoms associated with BMS are:
BMS has been broken down into Primary BMS and Secondary BMS.
Primary BMS is when there are no clinical or lab explanations. Research suggests that this type of BMS is caused by damage to the nerves in charge of pain and taste.
Secondary BMS is caused by a medical condition. Usually treating these issues can fix Secondary BMS.
Some common causes of Secondary BMS are:
A few risk factors of BMS are:
Treatment for BMS depends mainly on the cause. Finding the reason for burning mouth can include a physical exam and review of medical history, as well as blood tests, allergy tests, and a mouth swab.
Addressing any underlying issues is one way dentists can fight BMS. Patients can also help themselves by drinking water regularly and chewing sugar free gum.
Though children are usually not at risk for BMS, it is still important to teach them the values of good dental health early. Doing that can possibly prevent the onset of problems, such as BMS, later on.
