Abstract: Several methods of classification of partially edentulous arches have been proposed and are in use. The most familiar classifications are those originally proposed by Kennedy, Cummer, and Bailyn. None of these classification systems include implants, simply because most of them were proposed before implants became widely accepted. At this time, there is no classification system for partially edentulous arches incorporating implants placed or to be placed in the edentulous spaces for a removable partial denture (RPD). This article proposes a simple classification system for partially edentulous arches with implants based on the Kennedy classification system, with modification, to be used for RPDs. It incorporates the number and positions of implants placed or to be placed in the edentulous areas. A different name, Implant-Corrected Kennedy (ICK) Classification System, is given to the new classification system to be differentiated from other partially edentulous arch classification systems.
