Molar–incisor–hypomineralization (MIH) is a developmental defect of enamel dental tissue caused by the disturbances in the maturation stage of amelogenesis. It usually affects the permanent first molars and incisors. In children, MIH condition clinically appears as the demarcated discolored hypomineralized defects of affected teeth, post-eruptive breakdown (PEB) of affected enamel, dentine exposure, hypersensitivity, increased susceptibility to dental caries and behavioral management challenges owing to dental anxiety/fear and dental esthetic concerns. This case report describes the comprehensive dental management of MIH in an 8-year-old male pediatric patient by conservative and noninvasive treatment approach with preventive, palliative, and restorative treatment modalities under nonpharmacological behavior management techniques.
