In this day and age, as dental implants are being placed with higher frequency, it is becoming necessary to sometimes remove failed implants. Implants can fail immediately after placement, months or even MANY years later due to varying factors. As it is, Dentrix's code D6100 removes implants from the clinical charting only if they were charted "existing", and then only from the clinical chart and not the perio chart. It also does not properly remove them from the clinical charting if they were placed, or "completed" in your office, even if it is 10 years later, by a new dentist....
Implants charted "Existing" or "existing" other must be DELETED from your patient's progress notes, going back to whenever they were charted originally. Or if you placed them and they are "completed" in your office, you must "invalidate" the procedure, to remove them from all your charting. If you delete it, your ledger history is going to be affected. Usually the "invalidated" procedure indicates that a procedure was posted incorrectly. But if an implant was placed 10 years ago, you shouldn't have to indicate that it was never placed.
Long story short, Dentrix code D6100 needs to be enhanced to remove the painting of the implant from both clinical and perio charting to make the most sense, instead of clinicians having to come up with extra steps to just get the painting off your chart.
Thank you for the recommendation, we are always looking for ways to improve the product. we will consider this for a potential future release.
