thanks for your query, i have gone through your query. the treatment for oral sub mucous fibrosis starts from stopping the habits. you can take antioxidants like lycopene. you can also go for intra lesional injections with steroids and hyaluronidase. consume more of turmeric containing food. donot go for surgical treatment because it will relapse and worsen further. i hope my answer will help you. take care.
