Oral Submucous Fibrosis
Oral submus fibrosis is a disease of 21 st century. It is a chronic progressive and irreversible disease affecting the oral, oropharyngeal, and sometimes the esophageal mucousa.
Patients present with limitation in mouth opening, intolerance to spicy foods, blanching of oral mucosa and burning sensation. Many forms of treatments have been tried but most of them are without any long term success. So, we developed unique surgical techniques for severe cases promising predictable long term results.
The Face Hospital Tips after Oral submus fibrosis
The treatment of patients with oral submucous fibrosis depends on the degree of clinical involvement. If the disease is detected at a very early stage, cessation of the habit is sufficient. Most patients with oral submucous fibrosis present with moderate-to-severe disease. Moderate-to-severe oral submucous fibrosis is irreversible. Medical treatment is symptomatic and predominantly aimed at improving mouth movements. Treatment strategies are described below. The role of these treatments is still evolving.
What is orthognathic surgery?
It is corrective jaw surgery performed by an oral & maxillofacial surgeon. Corrective jaw surgery includes a variety of different surgeries specifically designed to fix a wide range of misalignments of the jaws and teeth. For example, if you have an under-developed lower jaw that results in your lower teeth being far behind your upper teeth when you bite down, this can be corrected through a combination of orthodontic treatment (braces) followed by a jaw surgery designed to reposition the lower jaw forward.
Are all dental misalignments corrected through orthognathic surgery?
Most minor dental misalignments are corrected through orthodontic treatment alone. However, some misalignments require surgery as well.
How does the surgeon know exactly where to reposition the jaws?
Once orthodontic tooth movement is nearly completed, you will have accurate plaster models made of your teeth and photos are taken of your face, profile, and smile. A very precise CT scan and other x-rays are also done. Your proposed surgery is planned with sophisticated software that allows the surgeon to see exactly how many millimeters and degrees of movement are needed in 3 dimensions in order to bring your teeth into the proper bite and achieve symmetry of the face.
