Burning Mouth Syndrome
Burning Mouth Syndrome is characterized as a painful scalding sensation of the tongue, lips, palate or buccal mucosa in the absence of an obvious physical cause.
Other symptoms include tingling, numbness, bitter metallic taste or dry painful mouth.
There may be accompanying subtle mucosal changes.
Burning Mouth Syndrome will sometime have nutritional deficiencies as its root cause.
These deficiencies can be quantified on simple laboratory blood testing.
Once diagnosed, our doctors can review and provide effective treatment.
Burning mouth symptoms could also be indicative of other ominous disease and so a thorough clinical exam is definitely recommended.
