Abstract: Objective. The objective of this study was to evaluate the anxiety and salivary cortisol levels in patients with burning mouth syndrome. Study design. A case-controled into 2 groups: BMS, with diagnosis of the syndrome, and control, without any complaint of burning mouth. Anamnesis, oral examination, sialometry, the application anxiety inventory, and 3 saliva samples for cortisol analysis were done in every patient. Results. Statistical difference for subjective xerostomia was found on the BMS group ( P =.01), but salivary flow rate was normal in both groups. BMS group presented higher anxiety ( P =.001) and salivary cortisol levels ( P =.003) when compared with the control group. Conclusion. Higher anxiety and salivary cortisol levels were positively associated with the presence of BMS.
