Early childhood caries ECC has been observed as one of the most predominant chronic diseases in early childhood. Many studies show ECC was often neglected and most of the decay was left untouched. Early treatment of ECC is significant because untreated caries can lead to pain, sepsis and spreading infection, malnutrition due to the failure to eat, and poor general health. Children with severe ECC or those who are not able to cooperate well for traditional restorative treatment often require general anaesthesia. The cost of dental care is high.
A journal is a periodical publication intended to further progress of science, usually by reporting new research. Most journals are highly specialized, although some of the oldest journals publish articles, reviews, editorials, short communications, letters, and scientific papers across a wide range of scientific fields. Journals contain articles that peer reviewed, in an attempt to ensure that articles meet the journal's standards of quality, and scientific validity. Each such journal article becomes part of the permanent scientific record.
