Burning mouth

User Level:
Posted by: goldencrown  (9 years ago)

About two months ago, after a root canal treatment, I started feeling burning sensation in my mouth. It starts in the morning and becomes severe in the evening. There are times that the tip of my tongue becomes numb. I noticed that I am beginning to lose my sense of taste. I also suffer from lack of saliva which causes my mouth to become dry. It's becoming worse as days go by. Any idea what's causing all these? Will I ever regain my sense of taste? How can I get rid of the burning feeling in my mouth? Please help!

You could be suffering from burning mouth syndrome. A nerve that control pain and taste may have been damaged. You should see your doctor or dentist as soon as possible.

It could be a burning mouth syndrome. This is actually very painful particularly if you have amalgam fillings, dental caps and had root canals. The treatment will depend on the cause of your burning mouth syndrome so it is important to visit your doctor.
