BACKGROUND: The treatment of erosive oral lichen planus represents a therapeutic challenge. Despite numerous existing remedies, some of these treatments display disappointed results. Since it is a chronic disease with no current cure, the best treatment should target mainly the reduction of the duration and severity of symptomatic outbreaks with minimal side effects. To date, corticosteroids remain the first choice of treatment for oral lichen planus (OLP) patients. Although, topical corticosteroids have been found to be the safest and the most successful agents in the treatment of OLP, their prolonged use may cause mucosal problems and may lead to systemic complications...

INTRODUCTION: Pyogenic granuloma (PG) is a prevalent inflammatory hyperplasia of skin and oral mucosa which is often caused by constant low-grade local irritation, traumatic injury or hormonal factors. In many cases, gingival irritation and inflammation due to poor oral hygiene are precipitating factors. Oral PG occurs predominantly on the gingiva, but it is also encountered on the lips, tongue, buccal mucosa and rarely on the hard palate. Although surgical excision is the first choice of treatment, many other treatment modalities could be counted such as cryosurgery, sodium tetradecyl sulfate sclerotherapy, intralesional steroids, flash lamp pulsed dye laser, neodymium-doped yttrium aluminium garnet (Nd:YAG) laser, carbon dioxide (CO2) laser, erbium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet (Er:YAG) lasers and diode laser have been suggested...

Perio treatment has evolved beyond simple scaling with hand instruments. Ultrasonics and diode lasers have improved both the efficiency of treatment as well as treatment prognosis to arresting the disease process and gaining clinical attachment and decreasing pocket depth. Add to this the benefits of adjunct medicaments both at time of treatment via site placement and during routine home care by the patient, and we are able to tip treatment outcome in a more favorable direction. Periodontology has been closely linked to systemic health both as a causative agent to health issues and as a secondary site for some medical conditions...
