Introduction: The definition and pathophysiology of Burning Mouth Syndrome (BMS) remain a subject of ongoing debate, and there are no universally accepted guidelines for its treatment. Therefore, the objective of this paper is to present an assessment of the different treatments for the clinical management of patients with BMS on the basis of the available scientific evidence, so that their application in each specific case can be assessed. Material and methods: A search was carried out in the PubMed (MEDLINE) and The Cochrane Library (Wiley) databases on the different treatments for BMS. With the data obtained regarding the effectiveness of each therapeutic modality and the adverse effects it produces, three different lines of treatment have been developed. Results: The first line of treatment includes chewing gum, LLLT (low level laser therapy), tongue guard, psychotherapy, topical clonazepam, ALA (alpha lipoic acid) and Catauma. Conclusion: Further research is required to provide sufficient guidance to clinicians on effective therapeutic modalities and to establish a correct strategy in the management of BMS.
