Caries is the only commonest chronic disease of childhood. The caries is known as infancy caries, if occurred before 71 months of age. The early pulp involvement and gross destruction of the maxillary anterior teeth is seen in rampant caries, leading to reduce mastication efficiency, dysarthria, compromised aesthetics, development of abnormal oral habits, malocclusion and psychological problems. In an uncooperative child, restoration and treatment of such condition becomes a challenge for the pedodontist. The purpose of this case report is to provide a full mouth rehabilitation under anesthesia and replacement therapies that are available.
