This course will guide the clinician through the steps involved in successful placement of the stainless-steel crown. The stainless-steel crown can be easily placed by following the step-by-step approach outlined in this article. When placed properly and with good case selection, the stainless-steel crown should remain in place until the natural exfoliation of the primary molar.
