Setup a Supernumery Tooth

Follow

Additional teeth cannot be added to the 2D and/or 3D charts (at present), and therefore the below instructions cover how to add new item codes to be accepted in the Treatment Plan and Treatment tabs.

This article splits supernumery teeth into three sections:

  1. Those positioned around the wisdom teeth - commonly named 9, 10, 19, 110, 29 etc.
  2. Those positioned behind the premolar area - commonly named psuper
  3. Those positioned behind the front teeth - commonly named mdens

Add New Tooth ID's

The Tooth field found in multiple tabs of D4W only accepts specific characters to avoid mistakes. It is advised to add the new Tooth ID's and use them when working in a patients' file for supernumeries. 

The tooth numbers will not be chartable, but will show on invoices.

  1. Go to Location Setup > General tab

  2. Group: Treatment

    1. Add new codes to List of Codes (delimited by spaces) acceptable in TOOTH field (besides teeth code) 

    2. Do not remove the existing codes from this field
