Simple extractions are ones where the tooth is grabbed by forceps and the tooth is extracted with no complications.
A surgical extraction is when drilling is necessary to remove the tooth or tooth is removed with complications like extensive decay , curved root etc.

Simple extractions are performed on teeth that are visible in the mouth, usually under local anesthetics, and require only the use of instruments to elevate and/or grasp the visible portion of the tooth. Surgical extractions involve the removal of teeth that cannot be easily accessed, either because they have broken under the gum line or because they have not erupted fully.
