    Default CDT code guidelines
    Thank you for answering. If the patient has 5 strip crowns, 4 metal crowns, and 3 teeth sealed. Is it appropriate to code each individual tooth. in CPT the unlisted code 41899 is used for the entire mouth. Some payors are wanting the D codes. I would like to learn how to use them correctly.
