We have several providers w/ the same question about the following: if a patient has to have LL and LR SRP’s, but the uppers were ok ( or vice versa) … do i charge a prophy if i clean the top only or should a prophy be billed out only when it applies to the entire mouth?

A prophy should not be billed out on the same day as scaling and root planing. The SRP should be preformed and a week or two later the patient should return for a prophy.
