American Implantologists: Do You Know the Insurance Codes for Peri-Implant Mucositis and Peri-Implantitis?

Implant dentistry will only continue to grow with the advancement of minimally invasive technologies like the REPLICATE™ Immediate Tooth Replacement System continuing to improve surgical techniques, patient recover and esthetics. Dental implants in general have a very high success rate, and they can last a lifetime.
However, this does not mean we can take this success for granted, as implant failure can be commonly attributed to peri-implant mucositis and peri-Implantitis.
Prior to 2017, there were gaps in the dental coding system for the professional care clinicians needed to diagnose and treat these conditions and to help patients protect their investments.
