BACKGROUND: The stainless steel crowns (SSCs) placed using the Hall technique disrupts the occlusion, but stabilization appears to occur within a short period post placement. Negligible understanding and comprehension is presently handy about the changes in overbite and bite force after placement of stainless steel crown using the hall technique in children.

AIM/ HYPOTHESIS: To evaluate the digital occlusal analysis of vertical dimension and maximum intercuspal position to understand the changes in overbite and bite force after placement of stainless steel crown using the hall technique.

DESIGN: Twenty children who needed treatment for the carious tooth with decay extending to enamel and dentin and multisurface caries were managed using the Hall technique. Following that overbite measurement for vertical dimension was carried out clinically using digital vernier calipers. Later the T-Scan III was used for measuring occlusal load at the maximum intercuspal position. The bite force and occlusal premature contacts were digitally analyzed and recorded preoperatively, immediately after placement of SSC and after 1 month follow-up period.

RESULTS: A significant result in the vertical dimension, bite force on crowned tooth, significant reduction in the prematurities was seen from baseline to one month follow up.

CONCLUSION: There was an occlusal re equilibration attained after 1 month.
