    Smile nerve block
    Hi,


    check 64450

    CDR OF 64450:

    The physician anesthetizes a nerve to provide pain control or blockage. The physician draws a local anesthetic into the syringe and injects it into the branch of the nerve to be anesthetized. This code is used to report nerve blocks of other nerves not specifically listed in this section.

    HOPE THIS HELPS!
