Objective: To determine the sociodemographic and behavioral factor vis avis tooth decay for the occurrence of cervico-facial cellulites.

Materials and Methods: This is an control-case study in the “University Hospital of Mahajanga” from January 2015 to January 2017. This study included patients with cervico-facial cellulitis and tooth decay vs patients with tooth decay alone.

Results: 79 patients were included against 158 control cases. Sex ratio of 1.2, the mean age was 33.4-year-old (+/- 16.4). Stable work status constitutes a protective factor for the occurrence of cervico-facial cellulitis OR = 0,43 [0,22 - 0,44], p = 0,015. Rural zone with OR = 5,10 [2,86 - 9,12], self-medication OR = 4,69 [2,57 - 8,54], antibiotics OR = 3,96 [2,17 - 7,26] were contributing factors. Poor oral hygiene and anti-inflammatory agents are highly associated with the cervico-facial cellulitis.

Conclusion: This study exhibits the importance of sociodemographic and behavioral factors in determining the occurrence of cervico-facial cellulitis among patients with tooth decay. Prophylactic measures would be highlighted for the management of this unsafe pathology.
