Oral lichenoid lesions are often idiopathic (arising spontaneously or from an obscure or unknown cause) and is a chronic inflammatory disease that causes bilateral white striations, papules, or plaques on the buccal mucosa, tongue, and gingivae. Lichen planus is a disorder of unknown aetiology. Three decades worth of studies overwhelmingly show that lichenoid lesions healed in patients who removed their mercury fillings.
