The aim and objective of the present crossover study was to analyse and overcome the incidence and prevalence of factitial oral mucosal lesions in northern Indian district Barabanki region. This study portrays the analysis of patients visiting in Department of Oral Diagnosis Chandra dental college over the duration of 3 months near about 1200 selected for this cross over analysis.

Fordyces granules (6.55%, usually pinhead sized), possessing female to male ratio 1:2 followed by frictional keratosis (5.79%), fissured tongue (5.71%), leukoedema (3.78%), smokers palate (2.77%), recurrent aphthae, oral submucous fibrosis (2.01%), oral malignancies (1.76%), leukoplakia (1.59%), benign migratory glossitis (1.50%), candidiasis (1.3%), lichen planus (1.20%), varices (1.17%), traumatic ulcer glossitis (1.50%), traumatic ulcer and oral hairy leukoplakia (1.008%), Inflammatory papillary hyperplasia (denture stomatitis), betel chewers mucosa and oral irritated fibroma (0.84%), herpes labialis, angular cheilitis (0.58%) and mucus cyst of oral mucosa (mucocele) 0.16%.

It was observed that as per the study performed in lesions including oral/mucosal lesions like tobacco related lesions (leukoplakia, smoker’s palate, and oral malignancies) were more predominated among men than female. Female population most commonly observed with Denture stomatitis, herpes labialis and angular cheilitis.
