An Exploratory Study of Consanguinity and Dental Developmental Anomalies.
Int J Clin Pediatr Dent. 2018 Nov-Dec; 11(6):513-518.IJ

Abstract

Background

Consanguinity is known to alter the population structure but the available literature is almost silent on the association of dental conditions with consanguinity.

Aim

The purpose was to assess the various dental developmental anomalies in 6-9 year old children born out of consanguineous and non-consanguineous marriages and its association with their parents.

Design

A cross sectional house-hold survey with a sample size of 2,000 (1,600 non-consanguineous and 400 consanguineous respondents and their parents) using systematic random sampling was planned. Six to nine-year-old children and their parents living in 1,597 households were examined and the information recorded on a pretested self prepared questionnaire. The questionnaire had questions pertaining to personal details, type of consanguineous marriages, history of trauma and examination of dental developmental anomalies.

Results

Multivariate logistic regression showed that non syndromic supernumerary teeth in fathers (p =.009); fusion in mothers (p = 0.002); fusion (p <0.001), nonsyndromic supernumerary teeth (p < 0.001), and microdontia (p = 0.002) in respondents were significantly associated with consanguinity.

Conclusion

A significant association of developmental anomalies in parents with consanguineous marriages and their respondents was observed.
