My PT wants a set of upper and lower partial dentures. I’m using codes D5213 and D5214. The CDT book says these codes should include “any CONVENTIONAL clasps.” My PT needs a special type of clasp, in addition to the standard clasps, called a flexi clasp which will incur higher lab fees for our office. Is there a code for additional, non-conventional, clasps?

You may use D5862 (precision attachment, by report) You must explain in the "Remarks" area of the claim form what type of attachment you are using (i.e. flexi clasp) and why this type of clasp is necessary.
