Extraction of primary tooth #t was done and impression for space maintainer will be done at next visit.
Patient was administered anesthetic, gum tissue was opened, & a burr was used to grind off a piece of tori that was protruding from LR lingual area.
i have the 2022 code book and am having trouble finding it. Is it in the new book? if so where so i can see how it is in there.
Has this code been replaced? Need to remove bone in the area of 22 and 29. What do I use?
like a 3 or 4 unit bridge that needs to section off a part for extraction
Or is this procedure inclusive to the surgical extraction?
I had my teeth removed in another country but did not have time to stay to have the stitches removed. I was charged $250 to have the stitches removed from the inferior maxillary. The code used was D7912, which is for complicated stitches bigger than 5 cm. The dentist did not take more than five minutes to remove the stitches. I understand that the removal of the stitches is part of the follow-up visit, but in this case, it is not a follow-up visit and the clinic must be paid. Thus, what is the correct code? Is it still D9999?
Can I bill D2930 and D1510 separately?
(D0272) and (D0330) are the bwx's included in a pano or are they to be separated?
We use digital scan rather than conventional PVS and I'd like to know if I can now charge for 3-D dental surface scan -direct when scanning for a porcelain/ceramic crown fabrication? I will be posting D2740 on delivery date of crown.
