A trip to the dentist to have the cavaties filled or really bad teeth pulled.
If you are asking how to prevent it...
No milk in the bottle at bedtime or make certain the teeth are brushed AFTER the milk is gone.
Brush the teeth at least once a day. You don't need toothpaste but the non-flouride toddler toothpaste at least make the process taste good for the toddler.
If you are making formula, use water with flouride. Either tap water or Nursery brand bottled water.
Make certain toddlers get water with flouride too.
