Aim: The aim of this research and study was to assess whether the treated and untreated severe early childhood caries (ECC) in primary molars in children would make any impact on the Permanent First Molar (PFM) decays. Place and duration of study: This current analysis and study was evaluated in Lahore Medical and Dental College, Lahore in duration of one year from 2017 to 2018. Materials and Methods: For primary molar caries for this project 2,315 boys and 2,153 girls were examined and the time of emergence of permanent first molar, during their primary school time by trained dentist-examiners; at baseline the mean age of the children was 7.1 years. Results: An affected second primary molar had more effect than a first primary molar. The analyses revealed that girls were more susceptible to caries development; this gender effect was only significant for mandibular molars. Conclusion: In Light of our exploration and conclusion, which revealed that regardless of treated or not severe ECC had a significant impact on the PFMs, we strongly recommend that the parent of the children experiencing ECC should be informed about the risk of future caries in PFMs.
