I had Burning Mouth Syndrome after a dental procedure. I had many painful fissures and a one inch circular dark red sore on my tongue. There was a water blister the size of a dime in the middle of this circle. There is a great lack of understanding concerning this illness. I was seen at one of the nation's top medical centers and there was no understanding. I was told to put aloe on my tongue and return in four months. I have done much research on this condition. My research often led me to dental procedures and dental materials. I lost my sense of taste,endured constant pain and burning and was very sick for almost two years. I found answers. I am a writer and would love to hear your story. I intend to write on this condition. Contact Sylvia Lawing through Facebook or Linkedin. Thank you
How many of you can remember having a dental procedure prior to onset of Burning Mouth Syndrome?

I had an infected tooth and put on antibiotics and then put on a much stronger one. A few weeks later my BMS started and never stopped. Such pain and misery.
My BMS all started with a tooth filling that irritated my tounge. I went back and had it smoothed but the irritation remind. Gradually the sensation went to the upper side of my gum line and sides of my tongue. When not chewing gum I suck on the side of my tongue enough that it makes a white line on my tongue. Driving me crazy. After seeing 2 dentists, a GP, a OBGYN (for homones) and an ENT several times, I am now trying Amitriptyline. Has anyone else tried this medicine? I am have only been on it for three nights but really suffering with the side effects. It does seem to be helping my mouth but very drowsy all day, nausea in middle of night and constipation. I am already considering stopping taking it even though there is noticeable improvement in my mouth.
I have BMS. I have had it since Jan 2017. I just found out I am allergic to 4 materials used in dental procedures. (Test at Contact Dermatitis Institute). I have been going to the dentist since I was 7, first root canal at 10... now 39. 14 fillings, 5 crowns, 1 implant... think thats why I developed an allergy to dental materials. Last filling was in Sept 2016. Mouth burning started Jan 2017. Not sure theres a connection, either are any of my doctors. Need a dentist that can do work without acrylate based materials but can't find one. I've seen lots of doctors, had lots of tests... Any more udpates on BMS?
I have had BMS since 2014 after a very aggressive tooth extraction. It began as extreme dysgusia then went to extreme burn after 6 months. After seeing every dentist/oral surgeon/ENT in town, I became a patient at The Mayo Clinic. There is no cure. They put me on high doses of Gabapentin and Clonazapam. They help, but every day is still a nightmare. BMS has taken my happy life away from me. I am so sorry for anyone who suffers with this
My started after I burnt the roof of my mouth several months ago, however, I have 2 friends that have the same symptoms after a nerve was hit when they had freezing for a dental procedure. Is it nerve based? My doctor says no, but I'm skeptical.
yes, I too suffered with this after a dental visit, I went for a deep clean,scale and polish, and mouth felt strange sensation,straight after, like like tooth rubbing inside of cheek, sometimes a pinching feeling,and a burning /and or stinging pain,when of which is bad,wears me down! I have been prescribed Amytryptyline 10mg, and started this a while ago,but felt dry mouth/tired so stopped, but am going to try again and persever, This condition and finding a cure scares me!
Hi it is going to be 8 years in May, 2018 that my mouth started to burn after a root canal. It has been a living hell I have lost over l5 pounds and I am so thin now. I have been all over Manhattan searching for answers from different doctors and nothing. After a years of having this it started to simmer down on and off but now every since August of 2017 it has been burning non stop just a few days on and off and it comes right back. I am going back to a new Oral Surgeon this week and sees what he has to say. I am so unhappy I have lost my desire to even go out and socialize. I am just pray to God some one helps us with a cure one day. It gotten to the point that I just do not know what to eat anymore. I am still so thin it is horrible. I have tried mouth washes and things to swirl in your mouth and nothing. I have to becareful with centain meds like tylenol because it also burns :-(
I had major dental work done and burning mouth syndrome appeared My teeth & gums drive me crazy. My mouth is so dry I can hardly talk. I’ve tried pilocarpine torches & Klonipine.
No help. I know my dental work brought it on.
