The fundamental therapeutic problems related to amelogenesis imperfecta treatment are governed by the need to effect primary prevention interventions, reducing the risk of calculus accumulation and caries.

Abstract

The fundamental therapeutic problems related to amelogenesis imperfecta treatment are governed by the need to effect primary prevention interventions, reducing the risk of calculus accumulation and caries. There are also aesthetic and functional rehabilitative needs. Clinical management rehabilitation techniques vary depending on the AI type, but usually require restoration of affected teeth. Where orthodontic problems also exist, these should be corrected prior to the final restorative treatment. The use of composite resins in aesthetic restoration of permanent anterior and posterior teeth as affected by hypoplastic AI type is described. This case illustrates a patient who suffered from less attrition than those of the hypomineralized varieties. The therapeutic choice has allowed the correction of vertical dimension without the use of preformed crowns.
