To assess the awareness among dental students on different techniques available for temporisation in FPD.

Materials and methods

The survey will be conducted based on a questionnaire which will be distributed to final year dental students, interns and PGs of Saveetha Dental College.


Fabrication of provisional restorations or temporisation is an important procedure in fixed prosthodontics. Provisional restorations must satisfy the requirements of pulpal protection, positional stability, occlusal function, ability to be cleansed, margin accuracy, wear resistance, strength, and esthetics. Although any technique can be used to fabricate a provisional restoration, the choice of technique will be based on the ease, predictability and availability of materials required to accomplish the required characteristics. This is possible only when an individual has adequate knowledge about pros and cons of different techniques.


The purpose of this study is to assess and compare the awareness of dental students on different techniques available for temporisation in FPD.
