I billed out code D1550 (recement space maintainer) and the claim was rejected for needing a tooth number. Would the tooth number associated with this code be the tooth it is replacing? Ex: The space maintainer is connected to tooth A & C but filling the gap of missing tooth B on a child. Thank you
