Aim: The aim of this review is to provide awareness and update on the development of the treatment of OLP. Results: An electronic search was conducted through many websites and databases to analyze the various treatment modalities for lichen planus. The studies were reviewed and compared. This review article summarizes the treatment modalities carried out for the OLP. Conclusion: OLP has been researched widely as it has been a potentially malignant disorder. Recent advancements in the treatment have been considered to reduce the side effects.
