    Background: Fabrication of provisional restorations or temporization 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 the pros and cons of different techniques. Aim: The aim of the study was to assess the awareness among dental students on different techniques available for temporization in the fixed partial denture. Materials and Methods: The survey was conducted based on a questionnaire which was distributed to final-year dental students, interns, and postgraduate students of dental colleges in Chennai. The sample size was 100 students. The survey consisted of 10 questions. The questionnaire elicited awareness of different techniques employed in provisional restoration. The data were extracted and analyzed. Results: About 40% of the respondents answered that CAD CAM-processed temporary restoration has longer shelf life and were better, whereas 20% preferred conventional provisional restorations. Conclusion: The present study concluded that the students were moderately aware of the techniques used in the fabrication of temporary restorations. Further educational and awareness programs need to be undertaken to improve this status.
