Oral cavity is a functional part of the gastrointestinal tube, therefore, in search of etiological factors of oral symptoms, underlying systemic conditions should be considered. Oral burning without evident lesions on the tongue can coexist with functional gastrointestinal disorders, as well as with gastroesophageal reflux, gastritis and other gastropathies. This article is an attempt to indicate physiologic and pathologic relations between the oral cavity and the stomach. Therefore, close cooperation between general practitioners, gastroenterologists and dentists is essential.
