My top front tooth has been shortening over time and now has pain. I was told that the root disintegrated and the tooth has fused to the bone. I need to have implant to correct the problem and relieve pain. What medical codes should be used to ensure medical coverage?

Hi Guest!

The codes themselves will not ensure medical coverage - you will want to check with your medical insurer in advance to confirm coverage for these services. If you could reply with the list of codes/services planned by your dentist, I am happy to offer some crosscoding options.
