Brief Summary:

Platelet Rich Fibrine (PRF), which promotes wound healing by supporting angiogenesis, immunity and epithelial proliferation phases. over a decade has since past since PRF was developed and many clinicians now point to the potential use of a liquid version of PRF. a liquid injectable-platelet-rich fibrin (i-PRF) was developed by modifying spin centrifugation forces. At lower centrifugation speeds and by utilizing non-glass centrifugation tubes, the fibrin coagulation could be slowed down at early time points thus generating an injectable PRF. Much like traditional PRF, i-PRF contains an increase in leukocyte number and is further able to stimulate growth factor release.

Lichen planus is a common chronic mucocutaneous inflammatory disorder which generally affect s middle aged adults. Therapeutic methods including topical and systemic corticosteroids for the treatment of oral lichen planus (OLP) are suggested. However, long

-term use of corticosteroids may be associated with local and systemic complications, and moreover, some patients may not be responsive.

The investigators aimed to apply a treatment of autogenous origin (including no foreign products), considering the side effects of our corticosteroids. The study was designed as a split mouth.

The investigators planned to administer I-PRF to one side and intralesional corticosteroid therapy to the other side at patients with bilateral atrophic / erosive oral lichen planus lesions

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Lichen Planus Other: Platelet Rich Fibrin Injection Drug: Corticosteroid Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
Lichen planus diagnosis will be made histopathologically. Intraoral photographs and measurements will be taken at the beginning of the treatment and 2 months after the treatment is finished.

Other: Platelet Rich Fibrin Injection
Venous blood will be taken from the patient every session and I-PRF will be created in the centrifuge. I- prf will be injected on one side and corticosteroid will be injected on the other side in patients with bilateral oral lichen planus. Once a week in the first month after treatment and one time at the end of the second month, the patient will be called to the control.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Visual Analog Scale [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    Patients were asked to grade the severity of their symptoms in numbers from 1(very mild pain) to 100 (very sever pain) on the visual analog scale in each visit.

  2. Objective evaluation [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    The lesions were evaluated according to Thongprasom sign scoring system

  3. Quality of life [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    The oral health quality of life index (OHQoL-16) Grid in mm.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Oral Hygiene Index [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
