Hi Guest!

D6752
- Retainer crown - porcelain fused to noble metal
D6242 - Pontic – porcelain fused to noble metal

There are not direct crosscodes we are aware of for these services, 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

Hope this helps!

Hi Guest!


D1999
- Unspecified preventive procedure, by report
can be crosscoded to:
99429 - Unlisted preventive medicine service


D7960 - frenulectomy
can be crosscoded to:
41115 - Excision of lingual frenum (frenectomy)
40819 - Excision of frenum, labial or buccal (frenumectomy, frenulectomy, frenectomy)


D0350 - 2D oral/facial photographic image obtained intra-orally or extra-orally
D9230 - Nitrous

The codes listed above do not have direct crosscodes 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 codes below and include a narrative report describing the procedure:
41899 - Unlisted procedure, dentoalveolar structures
99070 - Supplies and materials (except spectacles), provided by the physician or other qualified health care professional over and above those usually included with the office visit or other services rendered (list drugs, trays, supplies, or materials provided)


Hope this helps!

Hi Guest!

D0330
- panoramic radiographic image
Can be cross coded to:
70355 - Orthopantogram (eg, panoramic x-ray)

D9110 - palliative (emergency) treatment of dental pain - minor procedure

First, you will select an evaluation and management (E&M)/office visit code - such as 99201 or 99202 for a new patient, or 99211 or 99212 for an established patient)

Then, to indicate it was an emergency service, you can choose one of the following:

99050 — Services provided in the office at time other than regularly scheduled office hours, or days when the office is closed (e.g., holidays Saturday or Sunday), in addition to basic service

Or, if it was during regular office hours but disrupted the schedule:

99058 - Service(s) provided on an emergency basis in the office, which disrupts other scheduled office services, in addition to basic service


D5821 - interim partial denture (mandibular)

The code listed above does 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

Hope this helps!

can be crosscoded to:

99211 - Office or other outpatient visit for the evaluation and management of an established patient, that may not require the presence of a physician or other qualified health care professional. Usually, the presenting problem(s) are minimal. Typically, 5 minutes are spent performing or supervising these services.

99212 - Office or other outpatient visit for the evaluation and management of an established patient, which requires at least 2 of these 3 key components: A problem focused history; A problem focused examination; Straightforward medical decision making. Counseling and/or coordination of care with other physicians, other qualified health care professionals, or agencies are provided consistent with the nature of the problem(s) and the patient's and/or family's needs. Usually, the presenting problem(s) are self limited or minor. Typically, 10 minutes are spent face-to-face with the patient and/or family.


D1110 - prophylaxis - adult

The code listed above does 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 try the CPT code below and include a narrative report describing the procedure:
41899 - Unlisted procedure, dentoalveolar structures


Hope this helps!



What will be the appropriate diagnostic code for D1110?
Thank you!

The diagnosis code(s) will depend on the patient's condition/symptoms - so in other words, why is the patient receiving the services?

For example, you may consider:

Z01.20 - Encounter for dental examination and cleaning without abnormal findings
Z01.21 - Encounter for dental examination and cleaning with abnormal findings
K02.3 - Arrested dental caries
K02.51 - Dental caries on pit and fissure surface limited to enamel
K02.52 - Dental caries on pit and fissure surface penetrating into dentin
K02.53 - Dental caries on pit and fissure surface penetrating into pulp
K02.61 - Dental caries on smooth surface limited to enamel
K02.62 - Dental caries on smooth surface penetrating into dentin
K02.63 - Dental caries on smooth surface penetrating into pulp
K02.7 - Dental root caries
K02.9 - Dental caries, unspecified
K03.89 - Other specified diseases of hard tissues of teeth
K04.1 - Necrosis of pulp
K04.2 - Pulp degeneration
K04.01 - Reversible pulpitis
K04.02 - Irreversible pulpitis
K05.211 - Aggressive periodontitis, localized, slight
K05.212 - Aggressive periodontitis, localized, moderate
K05.213 - Aggressive periodontitis, localized, severe
K05.219 - Aggressive periodontitis, localized, unspecified severity
K05.221 - Aggressive periodontitis, generalized, slight
K05.222 - Aggressive periodontitis, generalized, moderate
K05.223 - Aggressive periodontitis, generalized, severe
K05.229 - Aggressive periodontitis, generalized, unspecified severity
K05.311 - Chronic periodontitis, localized, slight
K05.312 - Chronic periodontitis, localized, moderate
K05.313 - Chronic periodontitis, localized, severe
K05.319 - Chronic periodontitis, localized, unspecified severity
K05.321 - Chronic periodontitis, generalized, slight
K05.322 - Chronic periodontitis, generalized, moderate
K05.323 - Chronic periodontitis, generalized, severe
K05.329 - Chronic periodontitis, generalized, unspecified severity
K05.10 - Chronic gingivitis, plaque induced
K05.11 - Chronic gingivitis, non-plaque induced
K08.89 - Other specified disorders of teeth and supporting structures


If you have additional details about the patient's condition, i'm happy to offer you some coding options.

Hope this helps!

Hi Guest!

For the conscious sedation, as long as the patient is over 5 years of age and the same provider who performed the extractions adminstered the sedation, here are the crosscodes below (if the patient was under 5 or if sedation performed by a different provider, let me know and I am happy to provide you those codes):

D9239 - Intravenous moderate (conscious) sedation/anesthesia – first 15 minutes
D9243 - Intravenous moderate (conscious) sedation/analgesia – each 15 minute increment
can be crosscoded to:

99152
Moderate sedation services provided by the same physician or other qualified health care professional performing the diagnostic or therapeutic service that the sedation supports, requiring the presence of an independent trained observer to assist in the monitoring of the patient’s level of consciousness and physiological status; initial 15 minutes of intraservice time, patient age 5 years or older

and

99153
Moderate sedation services provided by the same physician or other qualified health care professional performing the diagnostic or therapeutic service that the sedation supports, requiring the presence of an independent trained observer to assist in the monitoring of the patient’s level of consciousness and physiological status; each additional 15 minutes intraservice time (list separately in addition to code for primary service)


D7240 - Removal of impacted tooth - completely bony
D7230- Removal of impacted tooth - partially bony
D7220 - Removal of Impacted tooth, soft tissue
D7110 - extraction - single tooth

As for the CPT code for extractions, there is actually not direct crosscodes 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


Hope this helps!

Hi Guest!

So sorry about that, typo on my end!!

D2740 - crown - porcelain/ceramic substrate

There are not direct crosscodes we are aware of for crowns, so you can either use 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

Hope this helps!
