Patient presents for extraction of tooth #32. Dentist is able to remove coronal portion, but unable to remove roots. Also, surgical handpiece used to remove bone. Patient is coming back in 3-4 weeks to try and get roots removed. How should we code this visit?

There is a not a CDT code to be used for an extraction of an erupted tooth, that is incomplete. In this case you would use the code D7999 for unspecified oral surgery procedure, by report”. If that code is set to $0.00 be sure to put a dollar amount. You would then bill that code along with a narrative telling what happened during that visit. Just to be safe I would send this with radiographs as well.
