Abstract

Performing exodontia in patients with the precancerous condition of oral submucous fibrosis is difficult but frequently necessary. There is mucositis and trismus, faulty wound healing and predisposition to infection. Exodontia and dentoalveolar surgery in these patients may result in distressing sequelae and diagnosis of any subsequent complications like space infection is difficult. Hence, these patients must be treated as a special care group and measures adopted to ease distress. Literature has been reviewed with an eye to understand the underlying nature of the disease and factors that contribute to these problems.
