Bottle Caries

Discover the Symptoms, Causes and Treatment

In the world of pediatric dentistry, a vital issue is the dental health of little ones.

Baby bottle cavities, also known as deciduous tooth decay, occur in infants and young children. This condition is characterized by the deterioration of primary teeth.


Causes of Baby Bottle Tooth Decay

The main cause is the frequent and prolonged contact of the sugars present in formula, juices, and other sugary drinks with the teeth.

Symptoms include white or brown spots on the teeth, tooth sensitivity, and in advanced cases, visible cavities and tooth decay.


Baby Bottle Tooth Decay Treatment

Treatment depends upon the severity of the cavity and includes everything from fluoridation and fillings to, in severe cases, tooth extraction.

Modern treatment techniques are less invasive and more effective, focusing not only on treating existing cavities but also on preventing their future development.
