    How do you code mandibular defect?

  2. #2

    Default Mandibular Defect

    We cannot reach the code for Mandibular defect directly in ICD-9-CM.In such case we can derive from Disese or Disorder bone specified NEC as 733.99.Hope i am correct.

  3. #3


    If the mandibular defect is of congenital one, use the code 756.0 and if the defect is acquired one, use the code 738.8. Hope this helps you.
