Suggest treatment for oral submucous fibrosis

Respected Dr.

I am 63yrs, male married retired person, having two children. Suffering from Oral Sub Mucous Fibrosis for more than six years, presently having difficulty in opening mouth >20mm,sign of damage to the oral mucosa is sensible when touching it with tongue, always feeling soreness and often feeling dryness of mouth and mild burning sensation. At recent past, six month back I was under treatment of a senior dentist at local dental hospital. Doctor treated me with Inj.DEXONA-2ml & Inj. Spredase(combination of steroids and topical hyaluronidase)- twice per week for eight weeks, Tantum oral rinse twice daily/ Dysoral rinse twice daily/ Candit mouth paint application ,Dologel CT, Tenovate ointment was prescribed from time to time during last six month along with plenty Antioxident and Multivita capsules. I am not in comfort with problems mentioned above after this six month’s treatment. If it is necessary to continue treatment with

system medicine or some other medical intervention, then kindly help me by providing your valued guidance.

The treatment being given is appropriate. Only thing is that you must also do mouth opening exercises with it to make it more effective.
If this treatment doesn't help you, and you face difficulty in eating, the next option would be to go for surgery.
