A quick and easy method can restore a broken-down partial denture abutment with a pin-retained amalgam restoration. It has a high degree of patient acceptance as only one appointment is required, eliminating the need for the patient to leave a partial denture for adaptation to a wax pattern. The cost can be minimal. This technique can be used for Class II restorations; however, the practitioner must ensure sufficient clearance for the condenser to pass between the tooth and the partial denture, so all areas can be properly condensed.
