Burning mouth



Pacifico Dental Care

Burning mouth usually occurs in individuals over 50, but can affect others as well. There are several reasons why it occurs. 

Denture problems: a new denture, or one that doesn't fit well, can irritate your entire mouth.

Reduced salivary gland function: this will cause the mouth to become dry, inviting oral discomfort, difficulty eating or swallowing, loss of taste, and a burning mouth. Salivary gland dysfunction sometimes comes with age. But there are saliva substitutes and rinses to protect your oral tissues, and soothe burning sensations.

Medications: these often dry the mouth (side effects)

Vitamin deficiency: there is some evidence linking burning mouth syndrome to Vitamin B deficiency.

Candida infections: this is a common oral fungus, usually apparent to the eye but sometimes undetectable. A topical anti-fungal agent can be prescribed.
