Burning Mouth Syndrome & possible loss of teeth

Posted by @maggie45, Sat, Aug 18 7:00pm

Have any of you experienced teeth loss as a direct result of BMS? I have seen numerous dentists and an oral med specialist and nobody can give me any definitive info on this. On my facebook group, one person lost 8 teeth, another 12 allegedly related to BMS. I have just had 2 extractions and am concerned about more to follow. My present dentist sees no connection. Does anybody have info on this subject. Thx in advance for anything you can share.

You are not going to like what I have to say. My teeth were cracking and fling out. So dentist wanted me to put permanent teeth in. 22,000. Only other option was dentures. 6000.00. well that was almost two months ago. Since then forget eating. Infections and sore guns won't allow my dentures in. I see him again this next week. Something had to be done.

Thx for responding… sounds like the worst nightmare. Questions: how did your dentist connect this to the BMS? e.g. do you have reflux and therefore high acidity in your mouth? Is there a test for that? Or did you ever use a clonazepam rinse? (I have for a few yrs. and wonder if that could contribute? I lost the 2 due to absesses which can happen w/out having BMS. Dunno maybe it's too late to do anything to stop it. Just know dentures/bridges not an option w/burning & gums always so sore. Can't imagine spending all that $$ (scheduled to have implant for 1st one lost)- $3000 and suppose that just contributes to the pain?? This is a living hell– I don't know how you're coping but more and more I just feel like giving up.

I lost 2 molars in past year, suffering from BMS for 3 years. I’m also interested in this answer.

@mamajomclane that has to be an awful feeling losing two molars in the past year.
I see both you and @maggie45 have questions for @oregongirl about her visit to the dentist. @oregongirl did you see Maggie's questions?

I also am tagging @lauren123 @phyllisrn and @sheetrock1031 to see if they've experienced teeth issues and if they've been connected to BMS.

While we wait for others to respond, MamaJo, I was wondering about the toothpaste you found that helps relieve the pain so that you can go to sleep. How were you able to find it? Was it suggested by your doctor or dentist?

Saw it on this site so tried it- brand is HELLO. It is black and contains activated charcoal. Sensodine also helps but more chemicals.
