Abstract

Oral Hydrophysical Fibrosis (OSMF or OSF) is a long, complicated term of the oral cavity, a symptom of progressive fibrosis of the juke-epithelial inflammatory reaction and subcococcus tissue. Oral hydro-fibrosis (OSMF) is the long-term debilitating disease of the oral cavity, which has the probiotic probability and vague pathogenesis. 30 OSMF patients and 30 healthy individuals from the OPD of Saveetha Dental College. Serum samples were analyzed for the parameters status analysis by using BC 2300 MINDRAY HAEMATOLOGY analyzer. There is a significant decrease in Haemoglobin (p<0.001) and Iron (P<0.001) in OSMF patients when compared with healthy controls. Our findings suggest that prolonged or highly affected OSMF patients can develop anemia and other problems related to nutritional imbalance related to iron influenced metabolisms.
