Code Tip: D7880 Occlusal Orthotic Device, By Report CDT 2017

This code presently includes splints provided for temporomandibular joint dysfunction treatment.  May include several visits for the treatment.

Please do not use this code when billing for a tooth whitening tray( D9972) or an Occlusal Guard(D9940)

The D7880 is to treat TMJ disorders and the Occlusal Guard (D9940) is only to minimize the effects of bruxism (grinding) and other occlusal factors.
