Gail,

You'll usually find that a dentist bills for the procedures they perform according to a standard set of procedure code numbers (used industry wide in dentistry). So, our "simple" and "surgical" categories above would each have their own unique number, and your dentist would have assigned to them the standard fee they choose to charge for each one.

There really isn't a "loose tooth" code number, so you would have to anticipate that your dentist will bill your tooth as a regular "simple" extraction.

A dentist can always choose to lower their fee (like in the case of your loose tooth) and some do. But there is no standard "deduction" for that type of consideration.
