Main Article Content
Objective: The purpose of this work is to carry out a bibliometric study of articles on skeletal class III published in 6 high impact factor orthodontic journals over a period of 10 years (2008 - 2018).
Methods: The sample consisted of 313 articles selected from the studied journalsâ€™archives. The articles were analyzed and the number of authors, the origin, the knowledge domain, the study design and the level of scientific evidence were extracted. A content analysis was then conducted in search of diagnostic tools, therapeutic decision criteria, especially in borderline cases, and new therapeutic approaches.
Results: The articles have an average of 4 authors; the countries with the most publications are South Korea (29%), Turkey (11%), China (9%) and Japan (9%). The most common subjects are treatment (41%), diagnosis (26%) and prognosis (26%). The most frequent study designs are those that correspond to grade B and C. The diagnosis was undertaken by imaging, photography and laser face scanning. The therapeutic decision was based on multiple criteria and was initiated by means of skeletal anchorage, orthopedic appliances and classical and surgery-first orthognathic surgery.
Conclusion: The studies present new diagnostic approaches and innovative treatment methods that made skeletal class III detection more accurate and its management better.
