  • Abstract

    Burning mouth syndrome (BMS) can be defined as an intraoral burning sensation or dysesthesia, recurring daily for more than 2 h/day over more than 3 months, without clinically evident causative lesions. This condition still remains as one of the most unexplained medical conditions and is, hence, without a definitive treatment strategy. Symptoms include radiating pain, dysgeusia, numbness, tingling sensation, and xerostomia, and the pain is often relieved while chewing candy. Etiological factors are broadly classified into primary and secondary causes which could possibly contribute to BMS. Topical and systemic medications have been most commonly used to treat the condition. Non-pharmacological or behavioral management is a recent advancement toward the management of BMS. This review briefly explains the possible etiological factors, diagnosis of BMS and focuses on the various treatment strategies that have been used so far.
