ADA Insurance Codes for Dental Implants

Implant Services

  • D6010 Surgical placement of implant body: endosteal implant – Includes second stage surgery and placement of healing cap.
  • D6020 Abutment placement or substitution: endosteal implant – An abutment is placed to permit fabrication of a dental prosthesis. This procedure may include the removal of a temporary healing cap or replacement with an abutment of alternate design. The intention of this code is to report this procedure by other than the dentist who placed the implant.
  • D6040 Surgical placement: eposteal implant – An eposteal (subperiosteal) framework of a biocompatible material designed and fabricated to fit on the surface of the one of the mandible or maxilla with per mucosal extensions which provide support and attachment of a prosthesis. This may be a complete arch or unilateral appliance. Eposteal implants rest upon the bone and under the periosteum.
  • D6050 Surgical placement: transosteal implant – A transosteal (transosseous) bio-compatible device with threaded posts penetrating both the superior and inferior cortical bone plates of the mandibular sympysis and exiting through the perimucosa providing support and attachment for a dental prosthesis. Transcosteal implants are placed completely through the bone and into the oral cavity from extraoral or intraoral.

Implant Supported Prosthetics

  • D6053 Implant/abutment supported removable denture for completely edentulous arch
  • D6054 Implant/abutment supported removable denture for partially edentulous arch
  • D6055 Dental implant supported connecting bar – A device attached to transmucosal abutments to stabilize and anchor a removable overdenture prosthesis.
  • D6056 Prefabricated abutment – A connection to an implant that is a manufactured component usually made of machined high noble metal, titanium, titanium alloy or ceramic. Modification of a prefabricated abutment may be necessary, and is accomplished by altering its shape using dental burs/diamonds.
  • D6057 Custom abutment – A connection to an implant that is a fabricated component, usually by a laboratory, specific for an individual application. A custom abutment is typically fabricated using a casting process and usually is made of noble or high noble metal. A “UCLA” abutment is an example of this type abutment.
  • D6058 Abutment supported porcelain/ceramic crown – A single crown restoration that is retained, supported and stabilized by an abutment on an implant; may be screw retained or cemented.
  • D6059 Abutment supported porcelain fused to metal crown (high noble metal) – A single metalceramic crown restoration that is retained, supported and stabilized by an abutment on an implant; may be screw retained or cemented.
  • D6060 Abutment supported porcelain fused to metal crown (predominantly base metal) – A single metal-ceramic crown restoration that is retained, supported and stabilized by an abutment on an implant; may screw retained or cemented.
  • D6061 Abutment supported porcelain fused to metal crown (noble metal) – A single metalceramic crown restoration that is retained, supported and stabilized by an abutment on an implant; may be screw retained or cemented.
  • D6062 Abutment supported cast metal crown (high noble metal) – A single cast metal crown restoration that is retained, supported and stabilized by an abutment on an implant; may be screw retained or cemented.
  • D6063 Abutment supported cast metal crown (predominantly base metal) – A single cast metal crown restoration that is retained, supported, and stabilized by an abutment on an implant; may be screw retained or cemented.
  • D6064 Abutment supported cast metal crown (noble metal) – A single cast metal crown restoration that is retained, supported, and stabilized by an abutment on an implant; may be screw retained or cemented.
  • D6065 Implant supported porcelain/ceramic crown – A single crown restoration that is retained, supported, and stabilized by an implant; may be screw retained or cemented.
  • D6066 Implant supported porcelain fused to metal crown (titanium, titanium alloy, high noble metal) – A single metal-ceramic crown restoration that is retained,supported, and stabilized by an implant; may be screw retained or cemented.
  • D6067 Implant supported metal crown (titanium, titanium alloy, high noble metal) – A single cast metal crown restoration that is retained, supported and stabilized by an abutment on an implant; may be screw retained or cemented.
  • D6068 Abutment supported retainer for porcelain/ceramic FPD – A ceramic retainer for a fixed partial denture that gains retention, support and stability from an abutment on an implant; may be screw retained or cemented.
  • D6069 Abutment supported retainer for porcelain fused to metal FPD (high noble metal) – A metal-ceramic retainer for a fixed partial denture that gains retention, support and stability from an abutment on an implant; may be screw retained or cemented.
  • D6070 Abutment supported retainer for porcelain fused to metal FPD (predominantly base metal) – A metal-ceramic retainer for a fixed partial denture that gains retention, support and stability from an abutment on an implant; may be screw retained or cemented.
  • D6071 Abutment supported retainer for porcelain fused to metal FPD (noble metal) – A metalceramic retainer for a fixed partial denture that gains retention, support and  stability from an abutment on an implant; may be screw retained or cemented.
  • D6072 Abutment supported retainer for cast metal FPD (high noble metal) – A cast metal retainer for a fixed partial denture that gains retention, support and stability from an abutment on an implant; may be screw retained or cemented.
  • D6073 Abutment supported retainer for cast metal FPD (predominantly base metal) – A cast metal retainer for a fixed partial denture that gains retention, support and stability from an abutment on an implant; may be screw retained or cemented.
  • D6074 Abutment supported retainer for cast metal FPD (noble metal) – A cast metal retainer for a fixed partial denture that gains retention support and stability from an abutment on an implant; may be screw retained or cemented.
  • D6075 Implant supported retainer for ceramic FPD – A ceramic retainer for a fixed partial denture that gains retention, support and stability from an implant; may be screw retained or cemented.
  • D6076 Implant supported retainer for porcelain fused to metal FPD (titanium, titanium alloy, or high noble metal) – A metal-ceramic retainer for a fixed partial denture that gains retention, support and stability from an implant; may be screw retained or cemented.
  • D6077 Implant supported retainer for cast metal FPD (titanium, titanium alloy, or high noble metal) – A cast metal retainer for a fixed partial denture that gains retention, support and stability from an implant; may be screw retained or cemented.
  • D6078 Implant/abutment supported fixed denture for completely edentulous arch – A prosthesis that is retained, supported and stabilized by implants or abutments placed on implants, but does not have specific relationships between implant positions and replacement teeth; may be screw retained or cemented; commonly referred to as a “hybrid prosthesis.”
  • D6079 Implant/abutment supported fixed denture for partially edentulous arch – A prosthesis that is retained, supported and stabilized by implants or abutments placed on implants, but does not have specific relationships between implant positions and replacement teeth; may be screw retained or cemented; commonly referred to as a “hybrid prosthesis.”

Other Implant Services

  • D6080 Implant maintenance procedures, including removal of prosthesis, cleansing of prosthesis and abutments and reinsertion of prosthesis – This procedure includes a prophylaxis to provide active debriding of the implant and examination of all aspects of the implant system, including the occlusion and stability of the superstructure. The patient is also instructed in thorough daily cleansing of the implant.
  • D6090 Repair implant supported prosthesis, by report – This procedure involves the repair or replacement of any part of the implant supported prosthesis.
  • D6095 Repair implant abutment, by report – This procedure involves the repair or replacement of any part of the implant abutment.
  • D6100 Implant removal, by report – This procedure involves the surgical removal of an implant. Describe procedure.
  • D6199 Unspecified implant procedure, by report – Use for procedure that is not adequately described by a code. Describe procedure.
