Continuous burning sensation of the mucosa of the mouth, typically involving the tongue, with or without extension to the lips and oral mucosa. May be associated with gustatory disturbances and reduced salivary flow. It is most common in pre-menopausal and postmenopausal women.
Patients complain their mouth feels like they have just drank hot coffee or hot soup. In many cases they have trouble swallowing due to dry mouth. Also, they may have associated sore throat or a bad taste of metal in their mouth.
Due to the frustration of the poor symptomatic improvement of men and women suffering with Burning Mouth Syndrome, we have developed a specific photobiomodulation protocol for the treatment of this debilitating pain syndrome with great clinical response.
