Abstract

Statement of problem. Dental practitioners occasionally have patients present clinically with a history or chief complaint of burning and painful sensations in the oral cavity. Often the patient demonstrates clinically normal mucosa, which can make formulating a diagnosis challenging. This scenario, has been referred to as burning mouth syndrome, a multifactorial syndrome. Purpose. The purpose of this article is to present a review of etiologic factors and clinical implications related to the condition of burning mouth syndrome. (J Prosthet Dent 1997;78:93-7.).
