Abstract
Anxiety is the signal and phenomenon of a threat that can be divided into mild, moderate, severe, and very severe anxiety based on its level. Anxiety can cause pathological changes in the body including the oral cavity. Burning mouth syndrome (BMS) is one of the disorders in oral cavity that can be affected by anxiety. BMS is an oral disorder that consists of a burning pain in the mouth without any visible clinical manifestations. The question about whether anxiety is cause or effect of BMS remain unanswered. The objective of this study was to analyze the relationship between anxiety and burning mouth syndrome. This was an observational analytic study with cross sectional approach. Subjects were 50 psychiatric outpatients with main symptom of anxiety in Pirngadi Hospital Medan selected with purposive sampling. Data was collected by anamnesis, clinical examination, and interview with Hamilton Rating Scale for Anxiety (HRS-A) questionnaire. This study showed that there are 6 patients (12%) experiencing BMS. Fisher's exact test showed a significant result between anxiety level and BMS with p=0.001 (p<0.05). There was a significant correlation between anxiety level and BMS. Increased level of anxiety shows increasing number of BMS.
