OBJECTIVE: To explore the risk factors associated with rampant caries and to provide suggestions for prevention and clinical treatment. METHODS: On the basis of a field survey, case-control study was performed to isolate variables possibly related to rampant caries in children. Data analysis was performed with individual analysis and multiple unconditional logistic regression. Four logistic models were developed. RESULTS: The risk factors of rampant caries were cariogenic foods and bottle-feeding with sugar containing bovine milk; an increased risk of caries was also associated with duration of breast-feeding. CONCLUSION: Overuse of cariogenic foods and unsuitable patterns of infant feeding were the most important risk factors associated with rampant caries.
