Introduction: Oral submucous fibrosis (OSMF) is an insidious chronic disease characterized by a juxta epithelial inflammatory reaction, fibroelastic changes in the lamina propria, epithelial atrophy, trismus, and recurrent glossitis attacks. It is one of the most prevalent premalignant diseases in India. These days, OSMF is becoming more popular. A study on OSMF and its management according to the Ayurveda values more in the scientific field because Ayurveda’s main focus is on maintaining and promoting health care. Aim and Objectives: The aim of the study was to gain a better understanding of OSMF and its relationship to Sarvasara Mukharoga in Ayurveda. Materials and Methods: The contents of this article are based on modern medicine textbooks as well as Ayurvedic Samhitas. Clinical research published in both indexed and non-indexed journals was also consulted to obtain relevant content. Results: According to the Lakshanas described by Bruhatrayi, OSMF can be equated symptomatically with the Sarvasara Mukharoga. In the event of OSMF, the management of Sarvasara Mukharoga should be applied. Conclusion: On the basis of signs and symptoms, OSMF can be correlated with Sarvasara Mukharoga. Early treatment of OSMF using Ayurvedic medications and the cessation of habits helps in the easy cure of the disease.
