Diode Laser in the management of Oral Sub-mucous Fibrosis: A Case Report

Author(s): Vaishali Jamdade, Anshuman Jamdade, Amrita Agarwal, Nilesh D Pardhe

Etiology of oral submucous fibrosis (OSMF) is not fully understood, henceforth treated unsatisfactorily. Generally surgical treatment aims to reopen mouth. Surgery includes relieving fibrous bands followed by grafting to prevent re-fibrosis. Different surgical techniques are used to improve the condition of the patient. Each technique has its own advantage and disadvantages. Lasers application in OSMF is not much studied. In our case, laser (Diode) fibrotomy had an excellent result with satisfactory mouth opening and no recurrence until the last follow up.
