Burning Mouth Syndrome Print E-mail

Dr. Kennedy Burning mouth syndrome is an intense burning sensation on the tongue, often at the tip of the tongue. The burning mouth syndrome tends to develop in supertasters and post-menopausal women. Supertasters have an unusually large density of taste buds, each surrounded by pain fibers. Post-menopausal women with the burning mouth syndrome often lose their ability to sense bitter tastes. Clonazepam, an anti-seizure drug, is reportedly effective in treating burning mouth syndrome in more than 70% of patients.
