Aetiological Factors for molar incisor hypomineralization – A systematic review.

Objectives: The purpose of this systematic review was to evaluate the various possible etiological factors of molar incisor hypomineralization.
Methods: The literature search was conducted on MEDLINE databases, via the PubMed interface, Cochrane Library and ScienceDirect, using MeSH key words, and current language. An EndNote X7.1 reference management system was used. Selection of articles was done by three independent reviewers, by title, abstract, and methodology.
Results: From a total of 616 papers, 12 were eligible for inclusion. Nine of these investigated MIH and three investigated hypomineralized second primary molars (HSPM), and these were analyzed separately.
Conclusions: Early Childhood illness, especially fever and respiratory disease, is likely to be associated with MIH. Further prospective studies, genetic and epigenetic studies on the etiology of MIH and HSPM are needed to deepen knowledge about this dental defect.
