An overview of the current diagnostic & therapy according to the Würzburg concept – From prophylaxis up to restoration

In Germany, about 15% of children suffer from MIH disease. A systemic hypomineralization is described, which by definition affects the first permanent molars and the permanent front teeth. An assistance can be offered by the "Würzburger concept", which was developed by an international working group.

In dental practice, the treatment of children with MIH is playing an increasingly important role. In Germany, about 15% of children suffer from the disease. A systemic hypomineralization is described, which by definition affects the first permanent molars and the permanent front teeth. Clinically, melting fractures on freshly euprated MIH molars and sometimes a strong hypersensitivity of the affected teeth as well as repetitive filling losses pose a challenge to the practitioner. It is important to identify affected children at an early stage and to offer appropriate treatment. An assistance can be offered hereso-called “Würzburger Konzept”,  which was developed by an international working group with representatives from the German-speaking, university-speaking region (Austria, Germany, Switzerland). The basis is a new index for the classification of MIH, the so-called MIH-Treatment Need Index (MIH-TNI). Based on this, there is a therapy plan with recommendations for the treatment of the disease.  In general, the treatment spectrum includes prophylaxis and remineralization measures, restorative approaches as well as extraction. The webinar is intended to provide an insight into the diagnostic and therapeutic possibilities of MIH and to provide practical assistance. Objective 1:   Participants will be able to diagnose and classify MIH according to the MIH-Treatment Need Index (MIH-TNI). Objective 2:   Participants knows the therapy concept based on the MIH-TNI. Objective 3:   Participants can derive the therapy to be favored according to the severity of the MIH. Objective 4:   Participants can name the various treatment options of the MIH.
