In brief: Depends
Hopefully this is caught before the situation is too serious .
.. Fillings are the most conservative solution. If it is not caught it may require root canals and even extractions.

In brief: Eliminate infection
Fillings and/or root canal rx and/or extractions may be necessary.
Please never put a baby to bed w a bottle containing anything other than water. Taking child to dentist, especially pediatric dental specialist, by age 1 could have prevented this heartache. Please don't let the infection progress...Have it treated now.
