Hi guest!

D9243 - Intravenous moderate (conscious) sedation/analgesia – each 15 minute increment
can be crosscoded to:

99152
Moderate sedation services provided by the same physician or other qualified health care professional performing the diagnostic or therapeutic service that the sedation supports, requiring the presence of an independent trained observer to assist in the monitoring of the patient’s level of consciousness and physiological status; initial 15 minutes of intraservice time, patient age 5 years or older

99153
Moderate sedation services provided by the same physician or other qualified health care professional performing the diagnostic or therapeutic service that the sedation supports, requiring the presence of an independent trained observer to assist in the monitoring of the patient’s level of consciousness and physiological status; each additional 15 minutes intraservice time (list separately in addition to code for primary service)


D9221 - deep sedation/general anesthesia - each additional 15 minutes
Can be crosscoded to:
00170 Anesthesia for intraoral procedures, including biopsy; not otherwise specified


D0330 - panoramic radiographic image
Can be cross coded to:
70355 - Orthopantogram (eg, panoramic x-ray)

D7912 - complicated suture - greater than 5 cm
can be crosscoded to:
40831 - repair mouth laceration, complex or 2.5 or more


D0171 - re-evaluation – post-operative office visit
can be crosscoded to:
99211 - Office or other outpatient visit for the evaluation and management of an established patient, that may not require the presence of a physician or other qualified health care professional. Usually, the presenting problem(s) are minimal. Typically, 5 minutes are spent performing or supervising these services.


D6190 - radiographic/surgical implant index, by report
D6078 - Implant/abutment supported fixed denture for completely edentulous arch
D7210 - Extraction, erupted tooth requiring removal of bone and/or sectioning of tooth, and including elevation of mucoperiosteal flap if indicated


The codes listed above do not have direct crosscodes we are aware of, so you can either bill the "D" code on the medical claim (many insurers these days will process "D" codes when they are medically necessary services), or you can use the CPT codes below and include a narrative report describing the procedure:
41899 - Unlisted procedure, dentoalveolar structures

Hope this helps!
