Objective. Vital Pulp therapy using Biodentine has advanced, introducing and allowing new procedures and treatments, hence medical education should focus on research and publication. The aim of the study was to perform a bibliometric and scientometric analysis of the literature on the role of biodentine in endodontics from 2013 to 2023. Methodology: A bibliometric and scientometric quantitative study formed the basis of the methodology. Scientific production indicators were generated from 87 documents selected from Scopus using English keywords ("Biodentine", "Endodontic"). Results: Since 2016, the number of papers published on this topic increased (69%), indicating a growing interest towards this material. Brazil is the country with the highest scientific  interest (19%), and the Universidade Estadual Paulista Júlio de Mesquita Filho with the most publications (n=9). The International Endodontic Journal received 344 citations, Tanomaru-Filho M. (n=6) being the most cited. Conclusion: It is concluded that the role of biodentine in endodontics has grown not only in production and authorship, but also in scope and medical research, incorporating these resources in various scenarios and clinical settings.
