Rampant caries is a severe form of tooth decay that can affect milk teeth or permanent teeth. It is characterized by its speed of onset and progression, by the pattern of attack and its cause. Many teeth are affected often starting with the upper incisors. The lower incisors are usually, but not always spared. Sites which are normally at low risk of decay may be attacked. Destruction is frequently both rapid and extensive, because of this rampant caries poses a challenging management problem for dentists and patients.
