Hello Eros, thank you for asking.
Rampant caries or cavities affecting almost all teeth often occur in infants and toddlers due to lack of oral and dental hygiene. The habit of drinking milk from a bottle while sleeping is also a risk factor for caries. It is best indeed early on before teeth grow, babies are accustomed to cleaning their gums using clean gauze moistened with boiled water. Rub the gums slowly so that the remaining milk does not stick. Do it at least once a day before bedtime, so that the baby is accustomed to brushing your teeth. When the first teeth begin to grow, generally around the age of 6 months, the baby should be taken for control to the dentist, so that the dentist can assess the condition of teeth, gums, and mouth.
For children under the age of 3, do not use toothpaste that contains fluoride. You can use a small toothbrush with a soft tip, with or without toothpaste. Brush your teeth with up and down movements, not sideways. Do it at least once a day before bedtime. After brushing your teeth, don't give any more food and drinks. If the child drinks or eats again, the toothbrushing stage must be repeated. When a child is 3 years old, you can start using children's special toothpaste. Give toothpaste the size of corn kernels, monitor the child in a toothbrush, and don't let the child swallow the remaining toothpaste.
So far there is no toothpaste that can patch tooth decay. Tooth that has been damaged can only be maintained so as not to get damaged by the steps above. If the child is still suckling from the bottle, try to start slowly replacing with the glass. Don't let the habit of eating sweet foods and drinks. Don't drink milk while sleeping. Please consult with a dentist to treat children's teeth with holes. Thus the answer from us, hopefully can help. Regards.
