Abstract

<h4>Background</h4>There has been a debate about the use of Hall Technique (HT), whether it can be considered as a standard technique for the management of carious primary molars.<h4>Aim</h4>To summarise the evidence on HT for managing dentine caries in primary teeth.<h4>Design</h4>MEDLINE, Embase, CENTRAL and Epistemonikos databases were searched for clinical studies conducted from 2007 to 2021 evaluating HT in primary teeth. Two reviewers independently screened, data extracted and quality assessed the studies.<h4>Results</h4>Eleven publications from eight unique studies were included. Four were of low risk of bias overall and five studies were included in a meta-analysis. Overall, HT was 49 % (RR 1.49 [95 % CI: 1.15-1.93], I<sup>2</sup> =89.5 %, p < 0.001) more likely to succeed. When compared to direct restorations, HT was 80 % more likely to succeed; while similar success was found when compared to conventional preformed metal crowns. HT was also over 6 times (RR 0.16 [95 %CI: 0.10-0.27], I<sup>2</sup> =0 %, p < 0.001) less likely to fail. Most of the studies included proximal or multi-surface lesions.<h4>Conclusions</h4>HT is successful option for the management of caries in primary teeth, particularly for proximal or multi-surface dentine lesions. It is well-tolerated by children and acceptable to parent, with mild adverse effects reported.
