Applegate's Rules for Classification

  1. Classification should follow rather than precede extractions that might alter the original classification.
  2. If the third molar is missing and not to be replaced, it is not considered in the classification.
  3. If a third molar is present and is to be used as an abutment, it is considered in the classification.
  4. If a second molar is missing and is not to be replaced (that is, the opposing second molar is also missing and is not to be replaced), it is not considered in the classification.
  5. The most posterior edentulous area(s) always determines the classification.
  6. Edentulous areas other than those determining the classification are referred to as modification spaces and are designated by their number.
