Sherin C Jose, K Korath Abraham, Ektah Khosla

Rampant caries progresses at a faster rate and it involves multiple teeth which are usually considered immune to decay. Hence early diagnosis and initiation of preventive and restorative therapies are imperative in its management. Rampant caries can affect the early permanent dentition if the child has improper dietary habits and poor oral hygiene maintenance. This purpose of this report is to present a case of adolescent rampant caries in a 13 - year - old child. Endodontic treatment was done on the affected maxillary incisors and was then restored with polycarbonate crowns.
