Tried to use diagnostic code K08.8 for an access filing, but the code expired in 2021. What would be a good code to use? Thank you.

Hi Guest!

K08.8 (Other specified disorders of teeth and supporting structures) now requires an additional digit because they added a few more codes to the set! Here they are below:

K08.81 - Primary occlusal trauma
K08.82 - Secondary occlusal trauma
K08.89 - Other specified disorders of teeth and supporting structures


Hope this helps!
