Several studies have found an acceptable marginal accuracy of provisional crowns fabricated with PMMA acrylic resins.6,7 Other studies have revealed better results using Bis-GMA composite resins in terms of appropriate marginal accuracies.8,9 There is also some evidence suggesting light-polymerized materials might have better marginal accuracy.10 Some researchers have demonstrated the preeminence of the indirect technique of making provisional restorations extra orally11,12 while others have advocated the intraoral direct technique.13,14
A direct technique is recommended for single canals with good clinical access, whereas an indirect technique is more appropriate for multiple canals (Fig 1) or when access is more problematic.1 During the indirect technique, any elastomeric impression material will make an accurate impression of the root canal if a wire or paper clip reinforcement is placed to prevent distortion.2 It is usually done by cut pieces of metal to a length, and shape them like letter "J".1
On its website, the apex bank said that it had attempted an indirect technique in cooperation with BIS (Bank for International Settlements, Basel) to invest in Chinese bonds.
The J wire advanced via the indirect technique may malposition and anatomically follow the upper wall of subclavian vein.
Hodge's indirect technique adds an extra transfer step which does affect the image quality somewhat but the process does not require a flatbed printer.
Within the time period of observation, no incidents of trauma from VAC were observed from this indirect technique.
Instead, a team led by Hsiang-Kuang Chang at the National Tsing Hua University in Hsinchu, Taiwan, used an indirect technique. The group looked for random, brief drops in brightness of the star Seerplus X-1, the brightest X-ray source in the sky.
* Good marginal fit, especially if the indirect technique is used.

At the 1-week followup appointment, we observed that the patient had developed adhesions in the area of the scar division, and these adhesions were divided wit an angled forceps and the indirect technique. The woman experienced a subjective and visible improvement in her glottic airway from the combined treatment, and she was able to have her perioperative tracheotomy decannulated once the posterior glottis was completely healed.
