There's no one sure cure for burning mouth syndrome. Your doctor will treat you based on your signs and symptoms, and the probable underlying condition. Treatment of the underlying cause can improve the symptoms of burning mouth syndrome. However if the symptoms are not secondary to an underlying disease treatment can be challenging. Treatment options include:

  • Anticonvulsant medication clonazepam given in lozenge form
  • Alpha-lipoic acid, which is an antioxidant produced naturally in the body
  • Medications to treat oral thrush
  • Some antidepressants
  • Multivitamins and B vitamins
  • Psychological counseling
  • Some specific oral rinses or mouth washes
  • Saliva replacement agents

Surgery is generally not recommended for burning mouth syndrome.
