Regenerative endodontics (RE) is a dynamic field with widespread global impact. The aim of this bibliometric analysis is to highlight India's contribution in the field. Electronic search was performed in PubMed and Web of Science database till December 2019 using the search terms “Dental pulp regeneration,” “Pulp revascularisation,” “Revitalisation,” “Regenerative endodontic,” and their permutation. Articles of Indian authors with affiliation to Indian institutes were included. The following data were extracted: first author, institute and state of affiliation, year and journal of publication, study design, level of evidence (LOE), and number of citations. A total of 76 articles (case reports [n = 29, 38.15%], review [n = 25, 32.8%]) were published between 2008 and 2019. Majority (42.6%) were categorized as LOE 4. 7.4% articles were in LOE1 category. Eight percent articles had citations above 100 (highest cited-354 citations). The average yearly growth rate between 2011 and 2019 was 33.28% and highest number of publications was in the year 2015. The south zone had the maximum publications. At an institutional level, Centre for Dental Education and Research, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, had the maximum publications. Journal of Conservative Dentistry published the highest number of articles. India contributed 7.6% of the global PubMed indexed publications and reported 22% of clinical trials. This analysis reveals increasing trend of research in RE in India. However, it highlights the need to generate articles with higher LOE by conducting quality multicenter trials and promote national and international collaborations.
