Hi Liz K!

Dental coding is not really out forte like medical coding is, but here are some possibilities for you below!

21085 - Impression and custom preparation; oral surgical splint
Can be crosscoded to:
D5988 - surgical splint

70140 - x-ray facial bones less than 3
Can be crosscoded to:
D0290 - posterior-anterior or lateral skull and facial bone survey radiographic image

70250 x-ray lateral skull
Can be crosscoded to:
D0340 - 2D cephalometric radiographic image – acquisition, measurement and analysis

76100 - radiologic examination, single plane body section (eg, tomography), other than with urography
Cam be crosscoded to:
D0322 - tomographic survey

77077 - Joint survey, single view, 2 or more joints (specify)
95868 - electromyography,head; needle, bilatateral
95937 - neuromuscular junction testing (repetitive stimulation, paired stimuli) each nerve, any one method)

The codes listed above do not have a direct CDT crosscode are aware of. In these cases, you may try an unspecified/unlisted code such as:

D7899 - unspecified TMD therapy, by report

Hope this helps!
