My maxifacial surgeon wants to remove my 11 lower teeth and put an implanted denture with two post. I.m worried my erosive OLP will get worse and I will wind up with no teeth instead of bad teeth. Will the implants heal? Has anyone done this? How did it go?

    Hi Donna 

    I have LP and have just had implants at the top, don't worry about it, it will be fine, I also know of a couple of ladies who have had the implants and are fine. If anything it's better than a denture because that will just rub your mouth which can cause problems. Good luck

    Hi Donna,

    I don’t if you have heard of Dr.Morse in Florida. He seems to have help a lot of people with Lichen Planus. I recently called his office and received some great information. I’m startinh his regimen to help cure my LP and thyroid issues. I have had LP for over 10 years now. It doesn’t hurt to get a second opinion. Hope this helps. Oh yeah he also has a videos on YouTube too.
