Hi 5thavedental@gmail.com!

D7251 - coronectomy - intentional partial tooth removal

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

Hope this helps, have a great day!

Is there a diagnosis code for the D7251 code?

Hi Guest!

Great question. So basically, the diagnosis code(s) to use with D7251 will depend on why the intentional partial removal of tooth took place. Of course, there are many possibilities for why this might happen!

If you would like to give me a bit of detail on the patient's condition, or basically why the partial tooth was removed, I would be happy to offer you some coding options :)
