2024 ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Code S03.02XA
Dislocation of jaw, left side, initial encounter
The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Closed dislocation of left temporomandibular joint
|Clinical Category||CCSR Category Code||Inpatient Default CCSR||Outpatient Default CCSR|
|Any dental condition including traumatic injury||DEN001||N - Not default inpatient assignment for principal diagnosis or first-listed diagnosis.||N - Not default outpatient assignment for principal diagnosis or first-listed diagnosis.|
|Dislocations, initial encounter||INJ007||Y - Yes, default inpatient assignment for principal diagnosis or first-listed diagnosis.||Y - Yes, default outpatient assignment for principal diagnosis or first-listed diagnosis.|
The appropriate 7th character is to be added to each code from block Dislocation and sprain of joints and ligaments of head (S03). Use the following options for the aplicable episode of care:
- A - initial encounter
- D - subsequent encounter
- S - sequela
S0302XA replaces the following previously assigned ICD-10-CM code(s):
Dislocations are joint injuries that force the ends of your bones out of position. The cause is often a fall or a blow, sometimes from playing a contact sport. You can dislocate your ankles, knees, shoulders, hips, elbows and jaw. You can also dislocate your finger and toe joints. Dislocated joints often are swollen, very painful and visibly out of place. You may not be able to move it.
A dislocated joint is an emergency. If you have one, seek medical attention. Treatment depends on which joint you dislocate and the severity of the injury. It might include manipulations to reposition your bones, medicine, a splint or sling, and rehabilitation. When properly repositioned, a joint will usually function and move normally again in a few weeks. Once you dislocate a shoulder or kneecap, you are more likely to dislocate it again. Wearing protective gear during sports may help prevent dislocations.

Jaw Injuries and Disorders
Your jaw is a set of bones that holds your teeth. It consists of two main parts. The upper part is the maxilla. It doesn't move. The moveable lower part is called the mandible. You move it when you talk or chew. The two halves of the mandible meet at your chin. The joint where the mandible meets your skull is the temporomandibular joint.
Jaw problems include:
- Fractures (broken bones)
- Temporomandibular joint dysfunction
- Osteonecrosis, which happens when your bones lose their blood supply
Treatment of jaw problems depends on the cause.

 Not chronic - A diagnosis code that does not fit the criteria for chronic condition (duration, ongoing medical treatment, and limitations) is considered not chronic. Some codes designated as not chronic are acute conditions. Other diagnosis codes that indicate a possible chronic condition, but for which the duration of the illness is not specified in the code description (i.e., we do not know the condition has lasted 12 months or longer) also are considered not chronic.
