Background : Early childhood caries is a very chronic form of dental caries affecting young children. It impairs quality of life by causing acute and chronic infection. Eating and sleep disruptions impair the daily routine of children also affecting school performances. In the present case reports first full mouth rehabilitation was performed chairside whereas in second case report full mouth rehabilitation was performed under GA. In both the cases the Michigan Oral Health-related QOL Version PG questionnaire containing 10 questions were given to the parents to fill before the start of treatment and 6 months after completion of the treatment. The scale used to measure QOL in both the above cases revealed satisfaction of the parents and improvement in oral health as well as overall health which was observed by increase in weight in both the cases.
