Needing some clarification on code 7950. A tooth was previously extracted and we are now going in to graft the site for future implant. Is 7950 the correct code? 7953 won't work bc the tooth was previously extracted and 6104 won't either bc we are not placing implant yet. Thank you!
Has this code been replaced? Need to remove bone in the area of 22 and 29. What do I use?

Pt never developed #7. When she was a teenager a maryland bridge was make the pontic is an old metal that is attached to a porc maryland retainer. pt fractured only #7 and to be conservative, we only replaced #7. A crown was fabricated to attach to a metal wing pontic. Insurance denies every code in send including D6999 and will not help at all with a correct code. Please advise on this and if you need more explanation, please contact.
General dentist coded D0140 for tooth pain. Recommended RCT and got RCT at endodontist through referral. Endodontist coded D0140 again. Went back to general dentist for filling of crown. Got billed with D0140 again. Does this look correct to keep billing D0140 even though was evaluted for problem focused first time by general dentist?
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.

Fluoride toothpaste following periodontal procedure 100%. I've spoken to the company and they suggested D0999. The EOB note read: description for this treatment has a valid CDT code and does not match the submitted procedure code. What code would be correct code for Clinpro 5000 dispensed for take home?
