Code Tip: D7111 Extraction, coronal remnants-primary tooth

Proper coding is determined by the remaining tooth structure. There should be no remaining roots in order to use this code.  If there are roots use D7140, extraction erupted tooth or exposed root(either primary or permanent)  The payout for D7140 is generally higher if the tooth is retained by root structure which takes elevation or forceps to remove.
