Abstract
Oral diseases are among the foremost complications observed due to diabetes. Diabetic patients are more likely to develop serious gum diseases which contribute to the worsening of diabetes by causing a disruption of blood glucose. The study aims to investigate the relationship between oral disease and IDD in children in the Marc SANKALE health center of Dakar. The oral examination was based on oral hygiene and caries status. The main results obtained contain the following: unbalanced supply for 17.9% cases, good glycemic control was observed in 19.6% of the cases, irregular brushing was reported in 76.8% of the total cases under consideration, the average moderate gingival inflammation and oral hygiene was observed in 80.4% cases. Glycemic balance influenced by some other factors such as: age, gender, parental occupation, education level, job insecurity, additional health coverage, care seeking and tooth brushing (OR > 1). An awareness of the importance of good oral hygiene will contribute to the diabetic balanced control or to treat diabetes.
