First you have to quit gutkha chewing. Then you need to visit a dentist to evaluate the stage of your problem (OSMF). Your treatment will proceed accordingly (medicines, mouth injections, mouth exercises, laser surgery- most advanced treatment ).
You take any muscle relaxant, do mouth opening exercises, stop eating gutka, and concern to dentist for treatment.
Dear Lybrate user, 100% your problem will be cure. You have OSMF disease, caused due to excess tobacco & alcohol use. Quite tobacco & alcohol in all forms immediately. Avoid spicy food. Consult to your dentist for treatment of OSMF & re open your mouth at previous position. When your treatment become completed your mouth opening and all problems will be cure.
Restricted mouth opening after prolonged gutkha use is an early sign of Oral Cancer. If the habit continues and the condition aggravates, a surgical intervention is required. There are no 'magic tablets' available in the market to open the mouth. You must get yourself examined by an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon (specialized dentist) at the earliest and quit the habit right away. The surgeon would be able to suggest you certain medicines that you need to regularly take in order to improve the mouth opening. Some local injections (enzymatic) might be required as well to hasten up the mouth opening process. The good news is that if you immediately vow to STOP THE HABIT, the damage already done, will start to be repaired by your body. Take a sane decision and live longer and happily! 'magic
