Bottom Line: It not only has the desired aesthetic effect but is also more effective for primary teeth, which are used for a shorter period than permanent teeth are.Case Presentation.RelyX Unicem has the following advantages: (1) not requiring have any special skills for the dentist for performing the procedure, (2) decreased occurrence of bubbles during injection of the cement, and (3) overall short duration of the procedure.

ABSTRACT
Background. Early childhood caries is a widely prevalent disease throughout the world. It is necessary to treat this condition in early childhood; however, child behavior management may be particularly challenging during treatment. To overcome this challenge, we used Carigel to remove caries and RelyX Unicem resin cement for strip crown restoration. It not only has the desired aesthetic effect but is also more effective for primary teeth, which are used for a shorter period than permanent teeth are. Case Presentation. We report a case of three pediatric patients with early childhood caries, in whom caries was removed by using Carigel to avoid the risk of pulpal exposure associated with high-speed handpieces. Subsequently, aesthetic restoration was performed using strip crown with RelyX Unicem self-adhesive resin cement. Conclusion. RelyX Unicem has the following advantages: (1) not requiring have any special skills for the dentist for performing the procedure, (2) decreased occurrence of bubbles during injection of the cement, and (3) overall short duration of the procedure. Thus, it is appropriate for the treatment of pediatric patients whose behavior is difficult to manage. However, further studies are required in order to establish the use of RelyX Unicem as a stable restorative material in early childhood caries.

Mentions: In August 2009, a 16-month-old Korean girl presented with ECC at the Wonkwang University Dental Hospital (Figures 3(a) and 3(b)). Caries did not invade the pulp, but was very close to the pulp (Figure 3(b)). She was treated using Carigel (Foryoudent, Busan, Korea) to avoid the risk of pulp exposure while using a high-speed hand-piece. After the process of removing caries was completed, a 3-way syringe was used to wash the area to prevent the removed caries residue and gel from remaining on the surface of the tooth. A celluloid crown (3M ESPE, USA) was selected according to the size of the affected tooth after washing, and its shape was modified by clamping after cutting it to the appropriate length (Figure 3(d)). RelyX Unicem (3M ESPE, USA) was mixed with an automixer and then injected into the crown form (Figure 3(e)) followed by application of the crown form to the affected tooth, which was then removed after photopolymerization (Figure 3(f)).
