Hi Guest!

D7140 - Extraction, erupted tooth or exposed root (elevation and/or forceps removal)

Extractions actually do not have direct crosscode - so you can either bill the "D" code on the medical claim (many insurers these days will process "D" codes when they are medically necessary services), or you can use the CPT code below and include a narrative report describing the procedure:
41899 - Unlisted procedure, dentoalveolar structures

Hope this helps!
