Despite the importance of studies evaluating the long-term prognosis of burning mouth syndrome (BMS), there is a paucity of reliable literature available on this subject. We read with interest a recently published article by Kim et al.,
1titled “Long-term prognosis of burning mouth syndrome following treatment”, which concluded that the long-term prognosis of BMS was good in patients who responded well to treatment, and that xerostomia and taste disturbance were associated with a relapse of oral discomfort in some of the responders. We appreciate the author’s elaborate work on a subject with scarce data in the literature and take this chance to put forth some of our perspectives on the study.
