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.
Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submitted manuscripts and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
