Do you ever experience a burning sensation on the inside of your mouth or on your tongue? This is a condition known as burning mouth syndrome, and sometimes burning tongue syndrome. It is often paired with symptoms of dry mouth or a metallic taste, and can be made worse by eating hot or spicy foods. Causes of burning mouth syndrome are many, and can include a vitamin B12 deficiency, menopause, yeast infections in the mouth, or irritation caused by dentures or similar objects.
If you are experiencing burning mouth syndrome, consult your dentist at Bella Dental’s Federal Way dentistry clinic to better understand your problem and discuss possible solutions.
