I need to convert dental code D5982, surgical stent to a medical code as being medically necessary to prevent infection and protect the wound at the top of the mouth where they took the tissue for a gum graft so that I can submit this to our regular insurance as our dental insurance denied this coverave for this expense.

Thank you.

Ho John!

D5982 - surgical stent

The code listed above does not have a direct crosscode 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 try the CPT code below and include a narrative report describing the procedure:
41899 - Unlisted procedure, dentoalveolar structures

Hope this helps!

Hi Guest Niknka!

No problem :)

D7310 - alveoloplasty in conjunction with extractions - four or more teeth or tooth spaces, per quadrant
can be crosscoded to:
41874 - Alveoloplasty, each quadrant (specify)



D7250 - Removal of residual tooth roots (cutting procedure)
D4346 - scaling in presence of generalized moderate or severe gingival inflammation – full mouth, after oral evaluation
D6111 - implant /abutment supported removable denture for edentulous arch – mandibular
D5851 - tissue conditioning, mandibular

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 code below and include a narrative report describing the procedure:
41899 - Unlisted procedure, dentoalveolar structures


Hope this helps!

Hi Guest!

D0220 - intraoral - periapical first radiographic image
can be cross coded to:
70300 - Radiologic examination, teeth; single view

D0364 - Cone beam CT capture and interpretation with limited field of view - less than one whole jaw
can be cross coded to:
76497 - Unlisted computed tomography procedure (eg, diagnostic, interventional)

D7270 - Tooth reimplantation and/or stabilization of accidentally evulsed or displaced tooth

In Aetna's crosswalk for "Oral Surgery Medical In Nature", the crosscode for D7270 is listed as:

21140 - Closed treatment of mandibular or maxillary alveolar ridge fracture (separate procedure)

or you can use the CPT codes below and include a narrative report describing the procedure(s):
41899 - Unlisted procedure, dentoalveolar structures


As for follow up exams, the codes are typically the established patient evaluation & management (E&M) codes 99211-99215, for example:

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.

99212 - Office or other outpatient visit for the evaluation and management of an established patient, which requires at least 2 of these 3 key components: A problem focused history; A problem focused examination; Straightforward medical decision making. Counseling and/or coordination of care with other physicians, other qualified health care professionals, or agencies are provided consistent with the nature of the problem(s) and the patient's and/or family's needs. Usually, the presenting problem(s) are self limited or minor. Typically, 10 minutes are spent face-to-face with the patient and/or family.


Hope this helps!
