When the doctor uses an electrosurge to clean up gum tissue for the purposes of removing granulation tissue, enhancing the aesthetics of a crown and increasing impression ease/accuracy.. what periodontal oriented code would best fit this?
The most appropriate code based on the information provided would be D4231 (anatomical crown exposure-one to three teeth per quadrat).
