Thanks for the query.

It is vastly advertised now a days that eating of things like gutka is injurious for health. The first thing you will have to do is to stop consumption of such gutka or paan masala.

The inability to open mouth that is bothering you can have different reasons. The best thing will be to get examined and eradicate the cause. Stricture, extra growth internally, weakness of muscles or of lower jaw may be responsible for restricted opening.

In all these conditions ayurvedic doctors recommend a procedure called gandush. In this we recommend to fill oral cavity with such amount of oil, decoction, juice, ghee, etc... that you cannot move the fluid in your cavity. In your case sesame oil [til tail] is recommended with pinch of rock salt in it. XXXXXX warm oil offers better results.

Internally you can add one tablet daily of ras XXXXXX ras for 15 days.

Hope this answers your query. Let me know if you have any other concerns.

Wish you a healthy life
