Dental caries in primary teeth is considered as the most common oral disease of childhood and has been studied in different countries worldwide. Traditional methods of managing carious primary molars in children include restoration with amalgam, composite resin, compomer, glass ionomer, and stainless steel crowns (SSCs) using conventional tooth preparation or extraction. The Hall technique, a novel method for management carious primary molars where decay is sealed using Preformed Metal Crowns (PMCs), without any caries removal, tooth preparation or local anesthesia. Present review of literature provides insight view about Hall technique.

Stainless steel crowns have been proved to be successful and efficient full coverage restoration in pediatric dentistry especially after pulp therapy and for restoring multi-surface carious lesions. These crowns are usually pre-formed and are selected according to the size of the tooth that requires the crown. The purpose of this study is to determine the common reasons for requirements of back to back stainless steel crowns in the maxillary arch of children aged 2 to 6 years. This cross sectional observational study was carried out retrospectively by analysis of the case sheets for the treatment done with back to back stainless steel crowns in the right and left quadrants of maxillary arch and thereby determining the requirements for the same. Out of 69 pairs of back to back crowns, 90.4% of the teeth required pulpal treatments; 8% of the teeth required Class II restorations; 11% of the teeth were given back to back crowns as an abutment for space maintainers in the upper arch. Back to back crowns in the maxillary arch were placed mostly for teeth treated by pulpectomy, followed by abutments for space maintainers.
