CDT D6050Get information about CDT D6050 dental procedure code with description :
The other category of a dental implant is a Transosteal Implant that can be fitted only to the lower jawbone. The procedure involves attaching a metal plate at the bottom of jaw bone. Since these implants are customized according to the width and height of the jawbone, they are relatively expensive. D6050 dental code is used for coding this procedure.
CDT D6050 Category : IMPLANT SERVICES
Prior approval requests for implants must have supporting documentation from the patient’s physician and dentist. A letter from the patient’s physician must explain how implants will alleviate the patient’s medical condition. A letter from the patient’s dentist must explain why other covered functional alternatives for prosthetic replacement will not correct the patient’s dental condition and why the patient requires implants.The CDT Code’s Implant Services category is somewhat unique compared to other categories of service because it includes separate entries for procedures that address:
- Surgical placement of the implant post (or body or fixture)
- Placement of connecting components when needed
- The final prosthetic restoration (single crowns, bridges or dentures)
