Question

What dental code do we use for mini-implants used to support a removeable partial or denture?

The code one uses to report mini-implants supporting a removable partial or complete denture depends on whether the mini implants are being used on a temporary or permanent basis.

D6012 is the code to report when an interim mini-implant is used to support a transitional prosthesis, which may be needed while waiting for full-diameter implants to integrate into the bone before loading with a permanent removable partial or complete denture.

If a mini-implant is being used on a permanent basis, report D6013.
