And they normally affect the adult teeth and all of them, not just one. It is possible that it's decay and will need to be filled. If it is decay, then their are probably other teeth that have decay also. A front tooth usually gets a cavity after the back teeth. But if the child goes to bed with a bottle or cup or even on the breast a lot, it could be decay from that. The only thing in a bottle that won't cause a cavity it plain water. Juice, milk, formula, breast milk; all of that may cause a cavity. Bottom line, the child should be taken to a dentist to be sure if it is or isn't and fixed if it is.
