The Problem of Molar-Incisor Hypomineralisation
Bekes, Katrin / Kleeberg, L.
MIH (molar-incisor hypomineralisation) is defined as hypomineralisation of systemic origin of one to four permanent first molars, often associated with the upper incisors (Weerheijm et al., 2001). The more molars that are affected, the greater the danger that the upper incisors will also have defects. Literature references on the prevalence of MIH vary.
