Dr. Azima Hanin S. M. | Dr. Suresh Venugopalan | Dr. Sam Jebaraj


Abstract: Introduction: Partial edentulousness is a dental arch in which one or more functional dentition is missing. Partially edentulous arches have been classified by various methods. The aim of this literature review was to analyse the prevalence of partial edentulousness and its correlation with age and incidence of various Kennedy?s Classes in upper arch. Materials and Methods: This retrospective study was conducted among partially edentulous patients in the upper arch in a university teaching hospital in Chennai during the period of December 2020 to May 2021. The collected data was then subjected to statistical analysis using Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS). Descriptive statistics and Chi square tests were used. Results: Partial edentulism was most frequent in the age group 41 - 60 years with 46.6% of the total population. It was noted that Class III was most frequent with 37.9% of total population followed by Class I with 28.7% in the upper arch. It was noticed that in younger age groups Class IV was prevalent whereas in the older population Class I and III was more frequent. Conclusion: Within the limits of this study, it was observed that; Partial edentulism was most frequent in the age group of 41 - 60 years. It was noted that Class I was most frequent followed by Class III in the upper arch. It was noticed that in younger age groups Class III and IV was prevalent whereas in the older population Class I situation was more frequently seen.
