Molar incisor hypomineralization (MIH), is a developmental enamel defect that affects permanent first molars and sometimes incisors. The aim of this study is to evaluate the relationship between MIH and oral health-related quality of life (OHRQOL) and to examine the effect of this situation according to age. In addition; The relationship between the presence of MIH and tooth sensitivity, and the relationship between tooth maturity and tooth sensitivity in children with MIH were evaluated. A total of 260 children, 130 healthy and 130 with MIH, participated in the study. Pediatric Oral Health-related Quality of Life (POQL) was used to evaluate OHRQOL, Schiff Cold Air Sensitivity Scale (SCASS) was used to evaluate tooth sensitivity, and Demirjian Method was used to evaluate tooth maturity status of children. Statistical analysis of the data was performed by Chi-Square Test, Fisher's Exact Test, T-Test and Mann Whitney U test (p<0,05). According to the findings obtained, OHRQOL was significantly negatively affected by the total score of the whole scale (p=0,014), according to the self-report of children with MIH. The OHRQOL of children with MIH at a younger age were significantly affected compared to healthy children in the same age group (p=0,005). Responses to stimulus were found to be significantly higher in teeth/children with MIH (p<0,001). The response to stimulus from the teeth of children with MIH and less dental age was found to be statistically significantly higher (p=0,042). As a result, within the limitations of this research; It seems that OHRQOL may be adversely affected due to MIH and some complications related to MIH. Because; dentists should always consider that OHRQOL may be affected in children with MIH.
