In the case of a sore, burning tongue, check if the gums and teeth have been attacked by the disease.
The causes of burning tongue can be different, Clarus dental center experts write on their website. They pointed out that the duration of the burning sensation on the tongue can be shorter or longer. Short-term burning of the tongue is usually the result of eating hot food, excessive smoking or drinking alcohol.
Prolonged burning of the tongue or general inflammation of the mucous membranes in the oral cavity, including inflammation on the inside of the cheeks, under the tongue and on the palate, is already a disease that dentists call oral mucositis, and is most often a side effect in cancer treatment, especially radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Oral mucositis is treated by photobiomodulation, with low-energy laser light regenerating cells in the nucleus.
ABC health professionals were also interested in Burning Tongue Syndrome. They were interested in why the tongue burns, and concluded: “Often when eating certain foods we can feel a burning sensation on the tongue, and the reason for this is in the thin mucous membrane of the tongue, which does not represent a strong barrier or barrier for the substances it comes in contact with, such as the skin. That’s why a tongue that is full with nerves quickly gets irritated.”
