Setup a Supernumerary Tooth for 3D Charting


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 supernumerary 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 IDs

The Tooth field found in multiple areas of D4Web 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 supernumeraries. 

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

  1. Click the navigation menu > Management > General page

  2. Group: Treatment

  3. Add new codes to List of Codes (delimited by spaces) acceptable in TOOTH field (besides teeth code)
    Note: Do not remove the existing codes from this field
