Update of the Molar Incisor Hypomineralisation: treatment approaches in children and adolescents Molar Incisor Hypomineralisation (MIH or MH) is a very common development dental condition that cannot be identified yet until the tooth erupts. It is easy to go unnoticed until the situation is worse or misdiagnosed as carious. If left untreated, MIH can have a major impact on the child’s quality of life and overall health with problems ranging from sensitivity, caries, discomfort and pain, and difficulty with eating, drinking, speaking and toothbrushing.
