There are more than 65,000 possible combinations of standing teeth and edentulous spaces which are encountered in the human dental arch. The system of classifying the partially edentulous arch would be an enormous aid in providing a precise word picture of a particular dental arch that is to be discussed. However, there are numerous classification systems which create confusion. Hence, a broad search of published literature was performed electronically using the keyword classification, partially edentulous, and denture from January 1928 to December 2018. This article enlisted the various classification systems and its critical analysis.
