Have you ever had a nice cup of hot coffee and suddenly felt a surge of burning sensation running through your mouth? If yes, don’t worry; it is common, and you are not alone. It is called “Burning Mouth Syndrome” (BMS).

What is burning mouth syndrome? 

Burning Mouth Syndrome, or BMS, is a chronic condition that affects the mouth, tongue, or lips, causing a burning sensation, dryness, and a metallic taste. Burning Mouth Syndrome can be painful, irritating, and confusing. It can occur anywhere in the mouth or throat. BMS frequently appears out of nowhere. There are numerous causes and therapies available. However, with the right combination of diet, medication, and professional consultation, you can get to the bottom of BMS and ease the pain. In this blog, we will discuss several ways to manage the symptoms of BMS and improve quality of life. 

How can I relieve myself of the burning mouth syndrome? 

Sucking on ice chips or chewing gum may help alleviate your discomfort. Prescription medicine, such as clonazepam, whether topical or systemic, may also help with pain relief. Working with the doctor on prescribed medicine is an important step towards relief. 

7 best ways to help you relieve the burning or tingling sensations 

  1. Practice good oral hygiene: Maintaining good oral hygiene can help alleviate the symptoms of BMS. Brush your teeth twice a day and floss daily to prevent infections and reduce inflammation.
  2. Avoid irritants: Certain foods and drinks can aggravate BMS symptoms. Avoid spicy or acidic foods, carbonated beverages, and alcohol. Also, avoid smoking and using tobacco products, as they can dry out your mouth and worsen the symptoms.
  3. Stay hydrated: Drinking plenty of water can help keep your mouth moist and reduce the burning sensation. It’s recommended to drink at least eight glasses of water a day.
  4. Use saliva substitutes: Saliva substitutes are available over the counter and can help relieve the dry mouth symptoms of BMS. These products mimic the action of saliva and provide a lubricating effect in the mouth.
  5. Try relaxation techniques: Stress and anxiety can worsen BMS symptoms. Try relaxation techniques like meditation, deep breathing, or yoga to help manage stress and improve your overall well-being.
  6. Consider medication: In some cases, medication may be necessary to manage BMS symptoms. The dentist may prescribe medications, such as antidepressants, anticonvulsants, or pain relievers, depending on the severity of your symptoms.
  7. Consult with the dentist: If you experience persistent burning sensations in your mouth, it’s essential to see a doctor or dentist. A dental expert can help diagnose the condition and suggest appropriate treatment options.


In conclusion, BMS can be a frustrating and uncomfortable condition to manage. However, following these ways can reduce your burning sensation and improve your quality of life.
