Hi Guest!

Yes minimal, moderate & severe atrophy is selected based on bone height.
As for a modifier for sinus lift, if bone substitue is used, modifier 52 for reduced services if CPT code 21210 (Graft, bone; nasal, maxillary or malar areas (includes obtaining graft)) is being used.

Hope this helps!
