Central Nervous System Mechanisms
of Burning Mouth Syndrome
 

Burning mouth syndrome (BMS) is an unusual condition characterized by the perception of burning on the tongue, lips and hard palate, and often other areas of the mouth. Our ongoing work aims to investigate the central nervous system mechanisms of this disorder through a systematic approach that includes the use of EEG, MRI, salivary and blood biomarkers, quantitative sensory testing, diaries and questionnaires.
