Abstract

Molar incisor hypomineralization (MIH) describes the clinical picture of hypomineralization of systemic origin affecting one or more first permanent molars that are associated frequently with affected incisors. Early diagnosis is essential since rapid breakdown of tooth structure may occur, giving rise to acute symptoms and complicated treatment. The purpose of this article is to review the diagnosis, putative etiological factors and to present a sequential approach to management of MIH.
