ABSTRACT: Objective: The objective of this study was to conduct a bibliometric analysis of periodontal research done in Brazil. Methodology: This study was developed by examining papers published at the 2017 Annual Meeting of the Brazilian Society of Dental Research (SBPqO). Summaries related to the field of Periodontics have been evaluated. An Excel spreadsheet with details of institutions, funding agencies, states, regions, subjects, and types of research methods was collected. Descriptive and analytical statistics were used to perform the analysis. Results: 3,095 articles were published in the annals of 2017 SBPqO. Only 216 (6.97%) articles dealt with issues related to Periodontics. The Southeast Region accounted for 66.7% (144 papers) of all published papers. More than half of the studies (64.8%) were about basic periodontal therapy and 48.6% (105 papers) received some sort of funding. Conclusion: The Southeast Region had the highest academic production. Public institutions were leaders in research activities, and basic periodontal therapy was the subject with the highest number of published papers.
