A broken tooth or one with advanced decay doesn't necessarily pose a greater challenge to the dentist.

If it does, the procedure might fall under the category "surgical extraction" (see above).

Or if extra time or effort is required the dentist might simply charge a higher "simple extraction" fee.

In either case, the dentist might have to document for the insurance company involved why the higher fee is justified.
