Causes of Oral Submucous Fibrosis

Oral submucous fibrosis can occur from the following causes -

Individuals who chew areca nuts are most at risk of oral submucous fibrosis. Areca nuts are a betel nut found in betel-spices, gutkha, etc, in which main agents such as tannin and alkaloids like escolin, escadean, guvacine, and guarcolin are found. Excessive intake of areca nut causes submucosal tissue to be affected and oral submucous fibrosis develops in a person.

  • Autoimmune disease

A person's immune system usually protects their body against germs such as bacteria and viruses. In some circumstances, the immune system of a person mistakenly starts attacking the body, healthy cells, and tissues of the body which are the result of many autoimmune diseases and cause oral submucous fibrosis.

Atrophic submucous fibrosis: This form of SMF is characterized by loss of normal tissue structure and function, which can lead to thinning of the mucosal lining and increased risk of infection.

Mixed submucous fibrosis: This is a combination of fibrosis and atrophy, which can lead to a range of functional impairments depending on the severity of each component.
