Stitches removedAnswer Question
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?
