Early childhood tooth problems are associated with variations in intrauterine and postnatal growth. Both premature and delayed timing of this physiological process might be a manifestation of local and/or systemic alterations. Presently, most clinicians agree that teething does not serious cause life taking pathological state, however, they disagree about reasons responsible for tooth eruption. The distinctive clinical presentation of dental caries in infants and toddlers, which is often known as early childhood caries (ECC), and are influenced by the eruption sequence of the primary dentition. Partial evidence exists in the context of ECC development, pathways, and disease rates in infants and toddlers. The present review article is focused on the current views of ECC.
