Burning mouth syndrome refers to the burning painful condition of the oral cavity in the absence of any other pathologic entity. It is a chronic condition of at least 4–6 months duration and is mainly confined to tongue, lower lip and buccal mucosa.

Management of burning mouth syndrome includes medications, psychiatric counselling and correction of any underlying disease.
