If we extract a root tip that was left behind by another provider, how would we bill for that? It is a permanent tooth. I know we would use D7111 for primary teeth, but I cannot find a code for that with permanent teeth. D7250 does not apply in our case because the procedure was not surgical. Is D7140 appropriate and if not what is the best code to use?
