Abstract

Burning Mouth syndrome is therefore an idiopathic condition, diagnosis of which is based on diagnosis of exclusion [1]. However, various conditions in the oral cavity cause ’Burning sensation” and are not related to ‘Burning Mouth Syndrome.’ In the lieu of this, it becomes important to distinguish the symptom burning from the syndrome. Burning mouth ‘syndrome’ refers to combination of symptoms seen in patients, this includes xerostomia, taste disturbances (metallic taste in mouth) and burning sensation. In absence of this triad, it is regarded as a symptom and not syndrome, which distinguishes the treatment protocol. Thus, it becomes very important to differentially diagnose the two.
