Early childhood caries (ECC)

ECC is the “presence of one or more decayed (noncavitated or cavitated lesions), missing (due to caries), or filled tooth surfaces in any primary tooth in a child under the age of six years old.”

- The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry1,2

Starting good dental habits from infancy is important for developing good oral health habits in childhood.

The use of soft-bristled toothbrush and age-appropriate fluoride toothpaste with a minimum concentration of 1000 ppm fluoride is recommended to prevent dental caries in early childhood.
