This article describes the clinical and therapeutic aspects of multi-caries in young children. These rampant cervical caries usually begin with the eruption of the first teeth. Two typical cases are presented in which the prolonged use of nursing bottle at bedtime and the use of pacifiers dipped into honey are responsible for the development of multi-caries. Although such patient can be treated successfully, efforts should be made to promote preventive measures and parents education.
