AIM A total of 30 patients between the ages of twenty to fifty years, regardless of gender, with opening of mouth upto 10 milimeters and diagnosed with oral submucosal fibrosis were selected by simple random selection
OBJECTIVES (1) To evaluate the role of coronoidectomy along with fibrectomy and interpositional grafting in OSMF patients (2) To assess whether coronoidectomy has any effect on long-term improvement in Mouth opening.

RESULT In the 30 cases in our series in which coronoid was removed, the average intraoperative mouth opening was 41.53 mm, which at six months follow up was 36.53 mm and at twelve months follow-up was 35.06 mm.
