How is ECC treated?

ECC should be treated because severely decayed teeth can cause pain, swelling and infection; affecting your child's diet, growth and development of teeth and jaws.

Treatment depends on multiple factors such as the severity of ECC, and the child's behaviour and ability to cope with treatment. NDCS offers a range of treatment options incuding fluoride treatment, minimally invasive procedures (e.g. hall technique, siver diamine fluoride) and treatment under local anaesthesia or general anaesthesia. Sedation is currently unavailable in NDCS.
