This research suggests that developmental dental anomalies (DDAs) exist in individuals born from consanguineous. It was published in the International Dental Journal.

This study aimed to evaluate nonsyndromic developmental dental anomalies (DDAs) in individuals born from consanguineous and nonconsanguineous marriages and the possible effects of these marriages on self-reported systemic diseases.

The study comprised a total of 880 patients aged 16 years or older who applied to the clinic for various dental problems. Based on detailed anamnesis, the patients were divided into 2 groups: individuals born from consanguineous and nonconsanguineous marriages. The parents’ consanguinity type was also recorded, as well as the presence of any self-reported systemic diseases. The number, size, eruption, and morphological DDA types were investigated with both clinical and radiological examinations.

There was a statistically significant relationship between the consanguineous marriage and the size (microdontia), and morphological (dilaceration and taurodontism) DDA types. Additionally, a significant relationship was found between consanguineous marriage and self-reported systemic disease but not between the parents’ consanguinity type and systemic disease.

In conclusion, the results of this study suggest that consanguineous marriage affects DDAs.
