Are you interested in treatment for chronic pain in the mouth?
Participants with burning mouth syndrome (BMS) are needed for a research study on the safety and efficacy of repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS).

TMS is a noninvasive technique that stimulates the brain and may be useful for treating several chronic pains.

Participants will have pre-study screening followed by a 2-week treatment period.
Participants must:

- Have burning or itching sensation without abnormal findings in the mouth
- Be between the ages of 21-75 years of age
- Have not undergone previous TMS treatment
- Be without a history of epilepsy or seizure disorder

Please call 843-792-2335 to find out more information.
