Abstract

  Molar Incisor Hypomineralisation (MIH) is a type of enamel defect which affects first molars and incisors in the permanent dentition. MIH is considered a worldwide problem and it occurs in children under 10 years of age. This developmental condition is caused due to lack of mineralisation of enamel during maturation phase and due to interruption to the function of ameloblasts. Many other factors such as genetics and medical problems during pregnancy are also been associated with MIH. It appears as discoloration on one to four affected permanent molars and the associated incisors. The enamel of the affected teeth appears yellow, brown, cream or white and thus sometimes referred to as ‘cheese molars’.
