Besoins en matière de soins bucco-dentaires des populations migrantes : une étude épidémiologique réalisée au Centre Médical Louis Guilloux, à Rennes

Abstract : Introduction – Migrant populations face risk factors that can affect their oral health among other health issues. The purpose of this study was to explore the oral care needs of these populations and to identify the obstacles they might encounter in accessing dental care. Methods – A retrospective observational epidemiological study was carried out in the Centre Médical Louis Guilloux in Rennes, France, a health center offering dental consults to migrants. The data were obtained by clinical oral examination and analyzed according to various criteria: reason for consultation, diagnosis, treatment plan, drug prescriptions and reference to other practitioners. Results – High prevalence of decays was observed among the patients (72.3%). Fifty-four patients were identified as needing major oral health care among the 130 files that were analyzed. The lack of proficiency in the host country’s language was associated to a major need for oral care (p-value < 0.02). Conclusion – This study provides an overview of the oral health and needs for oral care in the migrant population and suggests that alternative actions should be carried out to improve their access to dental care, including access to interpreting.
