Dent Res J (Isfahan)


Comparison of clinical indices and therapeutic effect of a mucoadhesive system containing Melissa 1% and triamcinolone 0.1% on lichenoid reactions.


Lichenoid reaction (LR) is a relatively common mucocutaneous disease with an unknown etiology. Since the cause of the LRs is unknown, many drugs have been studied to palliate the symptoms. Previous studies reported that corticosteroids are often effective in the management of several oral inflammatory diseases. The aim of the present study was to compare the effect of Melissa gel and triamcinolone 0.1% paste on clinical indices of oral LRs.
