I need to code- get ICD-9 codes for a pharmacy for arestin- the conditions would be: Chronic Advanced periodontitis, and generalized marginal pappillary severe gingivitus.I am also trying to figure out what the correct bonegrafting codes we should be using. WE do them often, sometimes prior to implant, and soemtimes just for obtaining a level of bone for a prosthetic placment at some point. WE always do them with extractions and most of the time we also place the tissue- Mucograft.Is there a code for placing arestin when the patient gets it through a pharmacy? Either medical or dental?

  • Ask the Coder

ICD-9-CM:
523.40 Chronic periodontitis, unspecified
The code for generalized marginal pappillary severe gingivitis would depend on if the gingivitis was Acute or Chronic and if it was plaque induced or non-plaque induced your options would range from 523.00 to 523.11/ in order to give the correct code this needs to be more specific.

Bone grafts depend on the size your options would be
CPT 20900 - small dowel bone graft / usually used for a tooth area of an implant site
CPT 21215 - large area mandible

Periodontal mucosal grafting
CPT 41870
