OSMF is Pre-malignant lesion of the oral cavity characterized by juxta-epithelial inflammatory reaction and progressive fibrosis of the submucosal tissues. Treatment of OSMF is mainly based on its grading. in early stages quit habit along with antioxident and aggressive physiotherapy may resolve lesion but in advanced condition aggressive treatment can be needed to improve patient quality of life.

The treatment of patients with oral submucous fibrosis depends on the degree of clinical involvement. If the disease is detected at a very early stage, cessation of the habit is sufficient. Most patients with oral submucous fibrosis present with moderate-to-severe disease. Moderate-to-severe oral submucous fibrosis is irreversible. Medical treatment is symptomatic and predominantly aimed at improving mouth movements.
Health Tips
you are advised to visit nearby Dentist for consultation.Once they see what all problems are their they will provide you with all the best options available with time frame and you can take decision accordingly Regards Smile Up Dental Care & Implant Center,Pune.

Oral submucous fibrosis is a premalignant lesion of oral cavity.As the disease progresses the jaw becomes so stiff that the patient has problems in opening the mouth.Mostly seen in people who chew pan or arecanut.
Biopsy is mandatory to confirm the disease.
Next Steps
Treatment
Abstention from chewing areca nut (also known as betel nut) and tobacco
Minimizing consumption of spicy foods, including chiles
Maintaining proper oral hygiene
Supplementing the diet with foods rich in vitamins A, B complex, and C and iron
Forgoing hot fluids like tea, coffee
Forgoing alcohol
visit to the nearest Dental centre and remove all sharp tooth edges and extraction of third molars.
SURGERY
Surgical treatment is indicated in patients with severe trismus and/or biopsy results revealing dysplastic or neoplastic changes.
Laser treatment is available in certain cases but it again depends on the extent .also one might need a platic surgeon for facial reconstruction in severe case.
Without proper diagnosis and clinical examination its very difficult to give a opinion on paper.
Cost of the treatment varies from place to place and also depends on the extent of disease.
Health Tips
Go to the nearest Dental centre or a Dental College or Hospital.
