My DD is 9 months old and she has her bottom teeth, and her top ones will be all the way through in about a week or so. I introduced her to a sippy cup around 7 months and she was okay with it. Now I try to slip one to her at least 2-3 times a day. When should she be completely on a sippy cup, and do I have to worry about the damage a bottle will do to her teeth?Answer Question

Pediatric dentists strongly recommend against the use of sippy cups because they often become "virtual bottles" that young children carry with them to sip on sweetened beverages throughout the day
Not necessarily true. Our son ONLY drinks water. Having them carry around water all day is perfectly healthy and good for them.
As far as age... my son had a night bottle with whole milk until he was about 15 months. Now it is only sippy cup & we will keep using it as long as possible!
