Burning mouth syndrome and other peculiar symptoms

I sometimes have patients who have strange symptoms such as burning mouth sensation BMS, tingling tongue etc. associated with their dentures. Often these symptoms are linked to psychological problems. Sometimes these sensations can be linked to other causes such as deficiencies in iron, vitamins and folate etc. and as such I recommend that their physician is involved in eliminating these as a cause.

Before providing the patient with new dentures it essential that they understand that the new dentures may:

1.     Help improve their symptoms

2.     Make their symptoms worse

3.     Have no effect on their symptoms

Example treatment plan/consent letter I give to patients before embarking on providing a denture who have strange symptoms.
