Aim: To compare and evaluate the parental satisfaction of Titanium coated Stainless steel crown and Conventional Stainless-steel crown in primary mandibular molars.
Materials and Methods: 20 children aged 4-10 years who visited the Department of Pediatric and Preventive Dentistry, who required preformed crowns on their lower primary molars were included for the study. The teeth were randomly restored with Titanium coated Stainless steel crown on one side and Conventional Stainless-steel crown on other side. Parental satisfaction was elicited with a 5-point Likert type questionnaire.
Results: A significant proportion of parents of study patients [50%] were very satisfied with Esthetic appealing of the Ti-coated stainless-steel crown as compared to Conventional stainless-steel crowns. Majority of the parents [90% and above] were satisfied with shape, size an durability of both the crowns. All parents expressed 100% satisfaction regarding both the crowns for not having any discomfort and sensitivity after placing the crowns. Overall, parents felt Ti-coated stainless-steel crowns were very satisfying [35%] as compared to stainless steel crown and the difference was statistically significant.
Conclusion: Ti-coated SSC may be used as an alternative option to Conventional SSC.
