Oral submucous fibrosis causes, prevention & treatment

Oral submucous fibrosis (OSF) is a chronic, progressive condition that affects the oral cavity and causes inability to open the mouth. It is primarily associated with the use of gutkha, betel quid, a combination of areca nut, tobacco, slaked lime, and various flavoring agents. Here's some information on the causes, prevention, and treatment of oral submucous fibrosis:

Causes: The primary cause of oral submucous fibrosis is the habitual chewing of betel quid, which contains areca nut. Areca nut contains several alkaloids and tannins that can cause fibrosis and scarring of the oral tissues. Other factors that may contribute to the development of OSF include genetic predisposition, nutritional deficiencies, and immune system dysfunction. Smoking cigarettes along with chewing betel-quid, gutkha, areca nut, and smokeless tobacco products increases or induces the risk of oral submucous fibrosis.

Symptoms: reduced mouth opening, burning sensation in mouth, and inability to eat

Prevention: Preventing oral submucous fibrosis involves avoiding or minimizing the use of betel quid and tobacco products. Here are some preventive measures:

  1. Quit or reduce betel quid chewing: If you are habitually chewing betel quid, or gutkha try to quit or at least reduce the frequency and quantity of consumption. 
  2. Avoid tobacco products: Smoking and smokeless tobacco increase the risk of OSF. Quitting or avoiding tobacco in any form can help prevent the condition.
  3. Healthy diet: Maintain a well-balanced diet rich in fruits and vegetables to ensure adequate nutrition and minimize the risk of nutritional deficiencies.
  4. Regular dental check-ups: Visit your dentist regularly for routine oral examinations. Early detection and intervention can help prevent the progression of OSF.


Treatment:  There is no definitive cure for oral submucous fibrosis. As per an article  in Journal of Oral oncology, the drug treatment that is currently available for oral submucous fibrosis is clearly inadequate. However, various treatment modalities aim to manage symptoms, improve mouth opening, and prevent further progression. Here are some common treatment options:

  • Medications: Your healthcare provider may prescribe medications such as corticosteroids, immunosuppressants, and antioxidants to reduce inflammation, alleviate symptoms, and slow down disease progression. Homeopathy offers alternative remedies listed by a doctor below
  • Physical therapy: In some cases, physiotherapy exercises involving jaw movements and mouth opening exercises may be recommended to improve mouth opening and reduce stiffness.
  • Surgical interventions: In advanced stages of OSF, surgical procedures like fibrotomy, release of fibrous bands, or grafting may be required to release the fibrotic tissue and improve mouth opening.
  • Lifestyle modifications: It is essential to avoid any further consumption of betel quid, tobacco, or any other irritants that can exacerbate the condition.
  • Oral hygiene: Maintain good oral hygiene practices, including regular brushing, flossing, and rinsing with mouthwashes to prevent secondary infections and maintain overall oral health.
