"Bottle Caries" means rampant caries in babies, linked to continuous dripping of sugar containing liquids onto the teeth. This is particularly linked to the use of baby bottles, because many infants tend to ‘nurse’ a bottle, but may also be linked to cup feeding or very occasionally breastfeeding if this takes place on demand and throughout the night.
