Oral submucous fibrosis occurs due to tobacco chewing habit. You have to consult a Oral surgeon in this regard. This condition results in restricted mouth opening. Initial stages can be treated with steroid injections and advanced stages with surgery. The period of ulcer is not known. Any ulcer more than 2 weeks has to be suspected for malignancy for which a biopsy is required.

Thanks for your query.     
You should consult some facio maxillary surgeon or ENT surgeon ,get the biopsy done to rule out malignancy. If you have history of taking tobacco or supari (betel nuts ) Chances of malignancy can be there.So biopsy is essential for proper diagnosis & treatment.

Proper diagnosis is the 1st step to your problem.I would suggest you to visit a dentist who has specialized in Oral Medicine and then if required go to an Oral Surgeon.Kindly do not panic.Mouth ulcers along with wisdom tooth problems can also cause difficulty in mouth opening.Since you have not mentioned about any habits & duration of beetle nut chewing or tobacco chewing or gutka etc,I would not conclude it is OSMF.
You can get the right treatment & relief only by visiting a dentist I mentioned at the earliest.Take care.
