Hi Guest!

K01.1 (impacted teeth) is a valid and billable ICD-10 diagnosis code.

Some medical insurers do not accept codes beginning with a "D" (some will), and want a CPT code instead.

D7230 - Removal of impacted tooth - partially bony

As for the CPT code for extractions, there is actually not a direct crosscode, so you can either bill the "D" code on the medical claim (many insurers these days will process "D" codes when they are medically necessary services), or you can use the CPT code below and include a narrative report describing the procedure:
41899 - Unlisted procedure, dentoalveolar structures

Hope this helps!
