Early childhood caries (ECC) is one of the predominant oral health issues in infants and children. It influences the oral health as well as physical, mental and emotional health of the child. Early loss of primary teeth can compromise the masticatory function, esthetics, phonetics and may lead to development of oral habits and malocclusion. Therefore, management of the affected primary teeth is obligatory, but it is a gigantic challenge when it comes to treat uncooperative children of such age. The following case series present the treatment modalities for management of ECC in different cases.
