Corporate America's Impact on Our Daily Clinical Practice
In a survey conducted by the American Medical Association (AMA) in 1983, 76.1% of physicians were practice owners. However, 2016 marked the first year in which physician practice ownership was no longer the majority arrangement. According to the AMA's Physician Practice Benchmark Surveys, 47.1% of physicians were practice owners. The same percentage of physicians was employed and 5.9% were independent contractors.1,2 By 2018, only 31.4% of physicians owned independent practices.2,3 Owing to the complexity of our healthcare industry, this trend will continue.

Lip infantile hemangiomas involving the vermillion border showed worse outcomes and prognosis to oral propranolol than lesions confined to one side of the vermillion
Oral propranolol is widely used for problematic infantile hemangiomas. Lip infantile hemangiomas present a high risk of disfigurement and associated psychosocial dysfunction requiring early treatment. Lips are compound parts that consist of the upper and the lower lips and include the mucosal and cutaneous lips histologically. This retrospective study aimed to determine the response and prognosis of different subtype of lip infantile hemangiomas to systemic propranolol. (Source: Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery)

Is it Time to Relegate Routine Opioid Prescriptions to the Oral Surgery Archives?
The end of the 1970s ushered in what became an accepted standard of care for most of medicine and dentistry, including oral and maxillofacial surgery: Hydrocodone with acetaminophen was introduced as Vicodin (Knoll Pharmaceutical Company, Whippany, NJ) in 1978 and rapidly embraced by providers to treat all types of pain. Curiously, centuries-old concerns about opioid addiction were largely set aside, and hydrocodone-acetaminophen combinations became the most-prescribed drugs in the US by the early 2000s and remain in the top ten.

Modified Submental Island Flap for the Surgical Treatment of 4 Patients With Stage 3 Medication-Related Osteonecrosis of the Mandible
Medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw in its advanced stages requires surgical treatment to resolve the pathology and to achieve good long-term results.

True Unilateral Mandibular Cherubism: A Literature Review and Case Report
Cherubism is a self-limiting fibro-osseous disorder that is classically characterized by bilateral mandibular swelling in the first or second decade. Three cases of unilateral cherubism have been described in the literature; however, only one case did not eventually develop bilateral involvement. Histopathologic variation and genetic heterogeneity complicate the diagnosis and treatment of a unilateral benign giant cell lesion of the jaws. This case report presents a 13-year-old male with unilateral posterior mandibular swelling that proved to be histologically and clinically consistent with unilateral cherubism. (Source: J...

Is low-level laser therapy effective for pain control after the surgical removal of unerupted third molars? Randomized trial
One of the main challenges after the extraction of unerupted third molars is pain control, and one of the treatments for these changes is low-level laser therapy (LLLT). Thus, this study aimed to assess the effectiveness of LLLT for pain control after the extraction of lower third molars. Trial design: This randomized, double blind, and split-mouth study included patients who required the bilateral extraction of unerupted lower third molars. Next, they received LLLT on one side (LASER) and not on the opposite side (control). (Source: Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery)
