CDT code D0140 is for a limited evaluation with a specific problem (i.e. patient has pain on tooth #3 and is seen for that specific problem only) while D9910 is used for the application of desensitizing medicament and may be reported on a "per visit" basis, this code is used for patients with root sensitivity and is for the application of topical fluoride.
