ABSTRACT:

Molar and incisor (MIH) hypoplasia is a condition that effects permanent teeth. The dental tissues once formed and matured cannot be remodeled and thus hypoplasia gets evident on tooth surfaces. The patients presenting with MIH are mainly concerned with the aesthetic issues and the known prevalence of 3.9%1 . No significant local data available on MIH. Early diagnosis is important to detect the suspected cause of the disease at the time of formation of the dental tissues; signs and a symptom are different in each age group and also depend upon the underlying cause. Many treatment options are available for MIH. The present case report demonstrates a cost effective management using directly placed composite restorations. Patient was kept on a regular follow up.
