Periodic Orthodontic Treatment Visit - Dental Procedure Code Description

This dental procedure code covers contractual orthodontic visits. These visits are your monthly visits to your orthodontist to update wiring, tighten ligaments or otherwise evaluate and update your care while undergoing orthodontic treatment. Additional unique orthodontic codes are used for diagnostics and initial banding or appliance placement services. This code merely reflects events that take place during a regularly scheduled contract visit.
