A review of the use of general anaesthesia in the treatment of early childhood caries
Author(s): Dr. Pavan Kumar and Dr. Kiran Kumar U
Abstract: Early childhood caries is a worldwide healthcare issue in both developed and developing nations. If untreated, it causes short- and long-term consequences that impair the quality of life and wellbeing of the affected families. As a result, the healthcare professional has access to a wide range of preventative and therapeutic strategies to combat this dangerous form of caries. When a young kid appears with substantial tooth damage and demonstrates a lack of cooperation that is incompatible with standard dental office care, general anaesthesia is utilized in select situations after behavioral interventions. Any beneficial outcomes, though, might eventually be lost if there isn't sufficient follow-up.
