Practicing regular dental care habits and maintaining good oral hygiene are important to ensure healthy teeth and gums. Dental medical billing and coding can be quite challenging. For dental practices, reporting symptoms, diagnoses and treatments of different dental conditions in claims will be quite challenging. Here, dentists can depend on reliable dental billing and coding companies that provide the services of skilled billers and coding specialists, who are knowledgeable in the medical codes and other related guidelines, and can easily manage the coding and claim submission processes.

Here listed are the diagnosis codes related to three common dental conditions.
Common Dental Conditions
Gingivitis

  • K05 Gingivitis and periodontal diseases
    • K05.0 Acute gingivitis
      • K05.00 Acute gingivitis, plaque induced
      • K05.01 Acute gingivitis, non-plaque induced
    • K05.1 Chronic gingivitis
      • K05.10 Chronic gingivitis, plaque induced
      • K05.11 Chronic gingivitis, non-plaque induced

Periodontitis

  • K05 Gingivitis and periodontal diseases
    • K05.2 Aggressive periodontitis
    • K05.3 Chronic periodontitis
    • K05.4 Periodontosis
    • K05.5 Other periodontal diseases
    • K05.6 Periodontal disease, unspecified

Dental caries

Some of the common warning signs of dental health problems are ulcers, sores, or tender areas in the mouth, sudden sensitivity, pain with chewing or biting, toothache, loose teeth, frequent dry mouth, and chronic bad breath. Any treatments and procedures performed can be reported using ICD and CDT codes. For accurate and timely billing and claims submission, dental practices can outsource their coding tasks to a reliable dental billing company that provides the services of AAPC-certified coding specialists.
