Abstract:
The main aim of this study was to determine the effect of amalgam fillings removal on lichenoid reactions remission in Iranian patients. In a randomized before after clinical trial study, nineteen cases with clinical diagnosis of lichenoid reactions and amalgam fillings at the same side were selected. The amalgam fillings, which were next to the lesions, were replaced by composite and the possible improvement of these lesions was evaluated 3 months later. Amalgam fillings were replaced in 19 patients. 3 (16%) revealed complete remission, 8 (42%) showed partial improvement and 8 (42%) showed no improvement. In general, the results of this study showed that replacing amalgam fillings with composite can be used as an effective way for managing oral lichenoid reactions.
