The first step is determining the possible factors in why you have this problem. After doing so, there may medications, relaxation methods, gels or ointments or other ways to treat the problem.

A doctor can often treat the painful symptoms of burning mouth syndrome by helping patients to identify what caused the problem in the first place. For instance, if the pain is related to mouth dryness, your physician can teach you strategies and prescribe medicine to keep your tongue and other oral tissues moist. However, for many patients, there's no obvious cause of burning mouth syndrome. In that case, the goal of treatment is to reduce pain. Drinking plenty of water, sucking on ice chips, and other lifestyle strategies can help. In severe cases, doctors may prescribe medications to help reduce symptoms.

There is no cure for burning mouth syndrome (also known as BMS or glossodynia) at this time. Symptoms can be relieved by avoiding aggravating foods and drinks and smoking. You may also try taking natural remedies. If there is an underlying cause, treatment for that condition may help. BMS has, in some cases, resolved itself.Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.

There is no cure for burning mouth, but it may be controlled by treating an underlying cause or medications. An underlying cause needs to be identified or eliminated by a physician and dentist. There are also times when tobasco sauce may be helpful.
