In brief: Can be either

Burning mouth syndrome is not well understood.
It may be temporary or longstanding. There are many suspected causes. Each case is different. Only by a dentist seeing you in person and taking a complete and thorough medical and dental history can you hope to discover possible cause and then prevention, treatment or management.

In brief: Usually Controlled

Burning mouth syndrome is somthing we don't fully understand.
It may be an issue with mouthwashes (do not use alcohol rinses) meds that you need (we work with md to change) or other diseases. We can often find a combination of things to control it and often it goes away as suddenly as it starts. One thing that can help is to drink lots of water. See your dentist and they should be able to help.
