| ICD-10 from 2011 - 2016

ICD Code K05.2 is a non-billable code. To code a diagnosis of this type, you must use one of the three child codes of K05.2 that describes the diagnosis 'aggressive periodontitis' in more detail.

The ICD code K052 is used to code Pericoronitis

Pericoronitis (from the Greek peri, "around", Latin corona "crown" and -itis, "inflammation") also known as operculitis, is inflammation of the soft tissues surrounding the crown of a partially erupted tooth, including the gingiva (gums) and the dental follicle. The soft tissue covering a partially erupted tooth is known as an operculum, an area which can be difficult to access with normal oral hygiene methods. The synonym operculitis technically refers to inflammation of the operculum alone.

Specialty: Gastroenterology
