Molar-incisor hypomineralisation (MIH) is frequently encountered in dental practice. Affected teeth may be more prone to caries and post-eruptive enamel breakdown, have increased sensitivity and are often diagnosed in young children where restorative, orthodontic and behaviour management options can be challenging. Recent studies have shown that dentists experience significant difficulties in diagnosis and management. Early diagnosis can lead to more effective and conservative management. The aim of this presentation is to discuss the key aspects of MIH from its prevalence to treatment options in young patients and improve our understanding and management of this condition.

Learning Objectives:

To review the current definition, aetiology, incidence and prevalence of molar incisor hypomineralisation

To discuss the clinical presentations and clinical implications in young patients

To discuss the various management and treatment options in the young growing patient
