I need more clarification on Code D9951 (Limited Occlusal Adustment – Limited)
I see in my ADA CDT book it states it is not supposed to be used when the procedure is for a bite adjustment when doing it post-delivery of something such as a crown/bridge. Is there another code to use when the doctor adjusts the bite after delivery or should it relate with another code? Thanks!
According to coding guidelines an adjustment done post delivery of a crown or bridge is included in the original fee and is not billed seperately, unless the adjustment is being done more than 30 days after the initial delivery.
