Hi Guest!

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

D0230 - intraoral - periapical each additional radiographic image
Can be cross coded to:
70310 - Radiologic examination, teeth; partial examination, less than full mouth

D9110 - palliative (emergency) treatment of dental pain - minor procedure

First, you will select an evaluation and management (E&M)/office visit code - such as 99202 for a new patient, or 99211 or 99212 for an established patient)

Then, to indicate it was an emergency service, you can choose one of the following:

99050 — Services provided in the office at time other than regularly scheduled office hours, or days when the office is closed (e.g., holidays Saturday or Sunday), in addition to basic service

Or, if it was during regular office hours but disrupted the schedule:

99058 - Service(s) provided on an emergency basis in the office, which disrupts other scheduled office services, in addition to basic service

D2391 - Resin Based composite
D2392 - resin-based composite - two surfaces, posterior
D2954 - prefabricated post and core in addition to crown
D2740 - crown - porcelain/ceramic

There are not direct crosscodes we are aware of for the procedures listed above, so you can either use 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!
