Objective: To evaluate the success and survival rates of dental implants in patients with oral lichen planus (OLP). Method and Materials: A narrative review literature search was conducted in the PubMed/Medline, Scopus, and Cochrane databases for articles published between 1990 and April 2013, using key search words dental implants and oral lichen planus. Results: This review did not identify any publications that were randomized controlled trials. A total of 60 OLP patients and 199 dental implants were analyzed. Three cases of OLP-related oral squamous cell carcinoma were reported. Conclusion: The extent and severity of underlying disease should be determined before dental implant placement. Keywords: dental implants, oral lichen planus, oral squamous cell carcinoma
