Lichen Planus

by Martha Swain
(Petersburg, VA 23805)

During the process of getting implants I developed Erosive Lichen Planus, and the process had to be stopped while I was treated for the Lichen Planus. No one suggested at the time that the implants may be causing the Lichen Planus, which is an auto-immune disease.

The medicine "controls" the lichen planus, but as soon as I stop taking it, it returns and is severe. I have been told that the lichen planus has been known to become cancerous.

I have heard that there is a test that can be done beforehand to determine if your body can handle the implants, but that was not done for me. If I can find information on this test, I intend to have it done, and if it proves that the implants have caused the lichen planus, I plan to have them removed instead of having the pain of the lichen planus for the rest of my life, and certainly do not want to be worrying about cancer.

Are there any Dentist or Oral Surgeons out there willing to give me a truthful answer to my questions?

SURPRISED

Erosive lichen planus by implants? - I personally don?t think so! Ask the best expert in this field dr Crispan scully.
He is a professor and written several books on this topic- search him on Google.
There are several blood tests done before implant placement , but to check lichen planus - I don?t know any test available before surgery .
It is an auto immune disease ,it can happen without any cause .
Yes it can become malignant ,so you have to be a regular patient to an oral medicine or oral pathologist expert.

No such test

I have implants, and oral Lichen Planus also. There is no such test before you have implants to determine if you will get OLP. Mine was caused by the actual overdenture that fitted onto the implants. Now a poorly fitted denture can cause OLP, but not the implants themselves.

Dental Implants and Litchen Plantis NEW
by: Kate

I , too, have Dental Implants and Oral Litchen Plantis. I wondered if it was a reaction to the Implants . I didn't have any pre allergy testing before surgery. Love the Implants but I wish I knew for sure if they are the cause of the Litchen Plantis. I would do anything to relieve my pain If it meant something as simple as removing them,I would do it

I too developed OLP during a period of have two jaw teeth replaced with dental implants with a Periodonal dentist; this particular dentist worked in partnership with another 'cosmetic' dentist who was performing cosmetic reconstruction/replacement on nine upper teeth. I associate the OLP to the total impact of this concentration of work during a period of roughly eighteen months...my age from 67, 68 years. The suffering has gone on now for about 2 1/2 years.

Oh wow! Nice one! At first I was scared of doing this. I have read that lichen planus is a complex procedure. Anyway, it was not as difficult as I thought. Anyway, kindly include more details of the cost. ICD 10 Coding

OLP is not a risk factor NEW
by: Dr. Susan Millar DDS

Dental implants do not influence manifestations of OLP. OLP is not a risk factor for peri-implantitis.
