Abstract: The Hall Technique is a method for managing carious primary molars. The decay is sealed under preformed metal crowns without local anaesthesia, tooth preparation or any caries removal. There is good evidence that, if caries is effectively sealed from the oral environment, the bacterial profile in the caries will change, resulting in it losing its cariogenic potential so that the lesion does not progress.
