Hi, The condition as u describe is supposedly Oral Submucous Firbrosis. Stop the habit immediately.. there is no other way you can solve this issue.. then there are few medicines, injections and if all in vain then surgical treatment for better mouth opening. But at first, stop the habit immediately and visit nearby dentist.
