Literature data show correlation between the state of oral cavity and dentition, and celiac disease. The aim of the study was evaluation of the morphology of oral cavity mucosa, malocclusion and developmental anomalies of enamel in patients with celiac disease depending on compliance with gluten–free diet. 200 patients with celiac disease were included into the study. 140 among them complied with the diet and 60 did not. The patients were divided into two age groups. On the basis of carried out examinations it was found that the compliance with the diet by patients had positive effect on the state of oral cavity mucosa and resulted in less frequent occurrence of angular cheilitis, malocclusion and crowding of teeth, as compared with patients who did not obey food restrictions. Thus, we think that children, teenagers and young adults with celiac disease should be informed about dental results of dietetic neglects.
