Applegate’s rules for applying the Kennedy classification

By Dr.Swathi Pai on Saturday 17 January 2009 with 4 comments



Rule 1: the classification should follow, not precede extractions.


Rule 2: if a 3rd molar is missing and not to be replaced, it’s not considered in the classification.


Rule 3: if a 3rd molar is present and not to be used as an abutment, it’s not considered in the classification.


Rule 4: if a 2nd molar is missing and not to be replaced, it’s not considered in the classification.


Rule 5: the most posterior area always determines the classification.


Rule 6: edentulous areas other then those determining the classification are referred to as modifications and are designated by their numbers.


Rule 7: the extent of the modification is not considered, only the number of additional edentulous areas.


Rule 8: there are no modification areas in a KIV.
