Reactive lesion formation around dental implants a complication that has been given much consideration. These lesions can lead to marginal bone loss, and consequently, implant failure. In the present systematic review, all reported reactive lesions associated with dental implants in the literature were assessed. An electronic search was performed using PubMed Central, Scopus, Google Scholar, and Science Direct. The search strategy was limited to human studies (case reports and case series), full-text English language articles, published until May 2017. A total of 19 articles reporting 27 lesions in 25 cases were included. Peripheral giant cell granuloma and pyogenic granuloma were the most reactive lesions found around dental implants. The mean age of the patients was 51.28 ± 14.48 years, with a slight female predilection. Posterior mandibular gingiva was the most common location for these lesions. The recurrence rate of lesions was 33.33%, and the chance of implant removal was 29.62%. Due to the clinical significance of these lesions, early histopathologic examination is recommended to exclude the presence of such pathological lesions.

Oral lesions accompanying cutaneous lichen planus or often occurring alone. The buccal mucosa, lips, gingivae, floor of the mouth, and palate are usually affected (in a descending order of frequency). Typically, oral lesions consist of radiating white or gray, velvety, threadlike lines, arranged in a reticular pattern, at the intersection of which there may be minute, white, elevated dots or streaks (Wickham's striae).
