Hi Guest!

D4273 - autogenous connective tissue graft procedure (including donor and recipient surgical sites) first tooth, implant, or edentulous tooth position in graft
can be cross coded to:
41870 - Periodontal mucosal grafting

D7950 - osseous, osteoperiosteal, or cartilage graft of the mandible or maxilla - autogenous or nonautogenous, by report
D6051 - interim abutment
D6057 - custom fabricated abutment – includes placement
D6065 - implant supported porcelain/ceramic crown

The codes listed above do not have a direct crosscode we are aware of, so you can either bill the "D" code on the medical claim (many insurers these days will process "D" codes when they are medically necessary services), or you can use the CPT code below and include a narrative report describing the procedure:
41899 - Unlisted procedure, dentoalveolar structures

As for the ICD-10 (diagnosis) codes for the above procedures - it all depends on why the patient is receiving the services, in other words, what conditions/symptoms are these services treating?

For example, some common diagnosis codes used when bone grafts are being performed are:

K08.21 - Minimal atrophy of the mandible
K08.22 - Moderate atrophy of the mandible
K08.23 - Severe atrophy of the mandible
K08.24 - Minimal atrophy of maxilla
K08.25 - Moderate atrophy of the maxilla
K08.26 - Severe atrophy of the maxilla

If you'd like to supply some additional details about the patient's condition/why they are receiving the services, i'm happy to offer you some coding options.

Hope this helps!
