What ADA CDT dental code is D7311?

D7311 is the ADA CDT dental code for an alveoplasty in conjunction with extractions. This typically involves trimming jagged pieces of the jawbone to help prepare the bony ridge for a prosthesis delivered at the same time as the removal of 1-3 teeth. The code description is officially “alveoloplasty in conjunction with extractions – one to three teeth or tooth spaces, per quadrant.”
