Baby Bottle Tooth Decay is a condition found in infants where, due to some bacterial action, the tooth of an infant rots/decays, leading to the to the weakening of the enamel. When liquids like milk or fruit juice, which have high sugar content in them, cling to the tooth for a prolonged period of time, tooth deterioration takes place. Bleeding gums, tooth infections, pain and white spots on teeth are some of the symptoms of this condition.
