Molar incisor hypomineralization (MIH) is a relatively common condition that varies in clinical severity, localized to permanent incisors and first permanentmolars. There is no specific etiologic factor involved and remains unclear till date. Late or improper diagnosis can result in mismanagement of the condition and results in early loss of especially first permanent molars. A treatment protocol has been put forward for early identification; grading and specific treatment optionsavailable for better management of this elusive condition.This article provides diagnostic information for identification and specific protocol management of molar-incisor hypomineralisation.
