Hall technique Part 5

Important additional notes

1) The crowns used in the research presented here were Ni-Cro Primary Molar Crowns, cemented with AquaCem, both from
3M/ESPE. Any adjustment of the crowns was minimal, and was limited to re-molding the crown margins in some cases with orthodontic band forming pliers. No crown had the margin trimmed. Continue reading

Hall technique Part 3

To begin with…

A full history and clinical examination, including bitewing radiography, should be carried out. Continue reading

Hall technique part 2

The Hall technique manipulates the plaque’s environment by sealing it into the tooth, separating it from the substrates it
would normally receive from the host’s diet. The plaque may continue to receive some nutrition from pulpal perfusion, but there is good evidence that if caries is effectively sealed from the oral environment, it does not progress. Continue reading

Hall technique Part 1

The Hall technique is a novel method of managing carious primary molars by cementing preformed metal crowns, also known as stainless steel crowns, over them without local anaesthesia, caries removal or tooth preparation of any kind. Clinical trials have shown the technique to be effective, and acceptable to the majority of children, their parents and clinicians. The Hall technique is NOT, however, an easy, quick fix solution to the problem of the carious primary molar. For success, the Hall technique requires careful case selection, a high level of clinical skill, and excellent patient management. In addition, it must always be provided with a full and effective caries preventive programme. Continue reading
