Hi,

I am new to Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery.
I gave codes for the vestibule of the mouth and was told it is not the vestibule of mouth it's an oral biopsy Right retromolar area excision.
So I found CPT 41826, Under Excision and Destruction Procedures on the Dentoalveolar Structures under another post which covers an excision but does not state biopsy.
I don't want to give the wrong code again.

Notes say:
Patient presents at the office today for evaluation of white spots on mucosa has started smoking last 2 weeks.

3mm white patch on retro-molar area posterior to 31
linea alba seen bilaterally-patient wears night guard occasionally
Patient would like to remove and biopsy the retro molar area

Patient received 1/4 carpule of xylo 2% 1:100 epi for local anesthesia

Procedure:
elliptical incision made around the lesion with clean margin about 3 mm in depth
mucosa closed with chromic gut

Thank you in advance for help!

Retromolar pad bx

I'm sure you have gotten an answer by now but for excisional bx retromolar pad without repair. I would say 41825.
