Objectives: Bibliometrics serves as a valuable tool for assessing scholarly articles. The objective of this study is to conduct a bibliometric analysis of Brazilian literature on oral and maxillofacial surgery across various years.

Methods: Following the principles outlined in the Leiden Manifesto, a bibliographic search was conducted on the Web of Science using oral and maxillofacial terms. Parameters such as number of citations, citations per year, authors, and publication year were examined. Visual representations of authorship and keywords were generated using VOSviewer. These steps were essential for compiling a comprehensive list and comparing it to all published articles on the topic. Statistical tests were carried out, with significance determined at a 95% confidence interval.

Results: A ranking comprising 71 articles across seven different subject areas was compiled, with variables discussed individually. The USA leads in terms of publication volume, followed by Brazil. Noteworthy authors and institutions were identified through citation analysis. The visualization of data was assessed, and findings regarding subscription versus open access articles were discussed. The importance of selecting appropriate keywords was also highlighted.

Conclusions: This study presents a thorough bibliometric analysis of Brazilian literature on oral and maxillofacial surgery. The presence of Brazil among the top ten most prolific countries in oral and maxillofacial surgery underscores its significant contribution to the global discourse and advancements within the field. It serves as a valuable reference and source of inspiration for oral and maxillofacial surgeons, academics, and researchers.
