Hi guest!

Root canal 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

Let me know if you need any help locating the appropriate ICD-10 accident code!

Hi Guest!

Dental coding is not our forte like medical coding is, however here is a link to a helpful guide provided by the ADA with coding options for these types of procedures:

Hope this helps!
