Abstract


Introduction: With the increased popularity of bisphosphonate therapy, it is likely that dental surgeons will encounter patients using these medications, and it is imperative to weigh the risks of oral and systemic conditions involving the use of bisphosphonates. For this, an evaluation of the literature is necessary to understand this condition, favoring better treatment to the patient. Aim: To map through a bibliometric analysis on the Web of Science database of the international scientific production of the bisphosphonate-associated osteonecrosis of the jaw. Methods: A bibliometric study on bisphosphonate-associated osteonecrosis of the jaw was carried out in the Web of Science database. No refinement filters were applied to knowledge areas, countries, or study languages. Bibliometric analysis was conducted using HistCiteTM software (Thomson Reuters Inc., New York, USA) aiming the organization of the information. Results and Discussion: 1395 publications were identified in the main collection of the Web of ScienceTM. These articles were published in 426 different indexed journals and were written by 5303 authors of 541 institutions in 26 countries. A relationship between the products shown that the subject is worked in wide and diversified approaches, pointing to a range of possibilities of aetiology, prevention and treatment of this condition. Conclusion: The descriptive analysis revealed a growing interest in research on bisphosphonate-induced osteonecrosis of the jaw, as well as potential for the development of the area and contributions to improve the understanding of the etiology, prevention and treatment of this condition.
