  1. 1. Presented By: (2nd year Post-Graduate Student) Department of Pedodontics And Preventive dentistry Dr. Syamala Reddy Dental College,Hospital and Research Center.
  2. 2. Dental decay : Major health problem  In India 52% of 5-year-olds have atleast one decayed primary molar tooth.  Several methods available:  Pit and fissure sealants,  conventional restorative techniques using Amalgam, Composite or Compomer
  3. 3. Hall’s Technique is a novel method of managing carious primary molars by cementing Preformed Metal Crowns over them.
  4. 4. The technique does not require local anaesthesia, caries removal or any tooth preparation.
  5. 5. CARIES Tooth Time Micro- organisms Food
  6. 6. Hall’s Technique Seal the tooth Manipulates the plaque’s environment Separating it from substrates Basically the NUTRITION Bacterial profille in caries changes lesion will not progress
  7. 7. A General dental practitioner from Scotland, who developed and used the technique for over 15 years until she retired in 2006
  8. 8. Carious lesions extending only till Dentine
  9. 9. Very incipient lesions
  10. 10. Grossly decayed teeth Teeth with Irreversible Pulpal Involvement Pulp polyps
  11. 11. “To determine the efficacy of the Hall’s technique in the management of carious primary molars with caries extending only to dentine.”
  12. 12. Study design: 3 year study ( Department of Pedodontics And Preventive dentistry Dr. Syamala Reddy Dental College, Hospital and Research Center.) 300+ children 5-9 years of age Carious primary molars with caries extending only to dentine.
  13. 13.  Parental consent was taken before the commencement of the study. were placed using  Follow up was done by : o Questionnaire given to the parents o Visual analogue scale given to the patients.
  14. 14. “Quick and easy" “No Drills" “Comfortable" “Less Stress" “No Needles"
  15. 15. 230 patients were HAPPY with the technique 24 parents objected on ESTHETICS 39 complaint of DISCOMFORT 7 came with the DISPLACEMENT of the crown
  16. 16. A MINIMAL INTERVENTION and CHILD FRIENDLY approach of managing the carious primary molar.
