Hi Guest!

The diagnosis code(s) will depend on the patient's condition, or in other words, why is the patient receiving the services?

The most common diagnosis codes we see used for sinus lifts are:

K08.24 - Minimal atrophy of maxilla
K08.25 - Moderate atrophy of the maxilla
K08.26 - Severe atrophy of the maxilla


Hope this helps!
