Psychosocial Associated Factors of Early Childhood Caries and Oral Health-related Quality of Life: Structural Equation Model Approach
According to structural modeling, preschoolers’ and their families’ oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) was severely impacted by the severity of early childhood caries (ECC). Weaker socioeconomic position, greater frequency of free sugar consumption, and weaker parental resilience were the key risk factors for the severity of ECC. The results show that psychosocial and behavioral factors might influence how severe ECC is, and that ECC can have a detrimental impact on preschoolers’ welfare and their capacity to carry out everyday tasks as well as on their families’ quality of life.

Use of Minimally Invasive Techniques and Antimicrobial Agents to Treat Rampant Caries
It can be difficult for a clinician to treat individuals with high levels of caries activity conservatively and minimally invasively. It is vital to employ cutting-edge equipment to monitor the disease’s causes, alter the patient’s eating and oral hygiene routines, and suggest using toothpaste that is high in calcium and phosphate and antibacterial oral disinfection products. The dentist should keep as much of the tooth as possible. If at all possible, the preparation margins should be located in the enamel to promote stable adhesion rather than deteriorating dentin adhesion. The restorations’ finish lines should be supragingival to enable the patient to maintain them quickly and effectively. Finally, it is possible to safeguard the hybrid layer against the invasion of germs to the hybrid layer’s micro gaps and avoid secondary caries by using antibacterial bonding materials containing QASi. The first line of defense against bacterial growth on composite surfaces is antibacterial repair materials with QASi infusion.
