Background/ purpose

Mineral Trioxide Aggregate (MTA) has become integral in endodontics, particularly in addressing irreversible pulpitis due to its notable biocompatibility and sealing properties. This bibliometrics and scientometric study aims to systematically analyse the literature to identify critical trends, influential publications, and emerging research areas.

Materials and methods

Publications were acquired online from the PubMed and Scopus databases on December 7th, 2023. Then, studies were screened based on title and abstract and irrelevant studies were eliminated. The publication output was then analyzed using Google Sheet, R package's Bibliometrix (Biblioshiny), and VOSviewer.


From 136 studies, 60 studies were included. The study highlights a substantial annual growth rate of 18.02%. Collaboration emerges as a prominent feature, with an average of 4.78 co-authors per document and 21.67% of collaborations being international, with India standing out as the most prominent contributing country. Recent trends indicate a surge in investigating diverse conditions, exploring advanced material combinations, and a growing interest in decision-making frameworks within endodontic practices. Several topics are still less developed, including other materials, decision-making frameworks, special consideration for specific patient populations, and the role of medical informatics.


This study elucidates the dynamic evolution of research priorities in MTA and irreversible pulpitis, emphasizing key trends and areas for further exploration and development.
