Amelogenesis Imperfecta (AI) is defined as a result of specific genetic defects affecting the deposition, mineralization and maturation of enamel in both the primary and the permanent dentitions. The clinical issues are sensitivity (particularly to cold), rapid wear and poor aesthetics, all of which can vary depending on the type of AI. Other anomalies with AI include disturbances in eruption, anterior open bite, pulpal calcifications, pathological root or crown resorption and taurodontism, all of which can present in the pediatric patient. This case report describes the preventive strategy of a case with amelogenesis imperfecta in a young patient who has 4-year-old with 18 months follow-up.
