Yeah that's super annoying. I had to get braces and needed to remove 4 teeth. The dentist made me pay $150 each for three of them. The fourth one? $250. Why? Because he had to "pull harder" to take it out. It was absolute nonsense.

It's probably not illegal. In the same way you can be charged for a no-call/no-show at an appointment because they've lost any revenue with not using that appointment slot.

This makes me glad my braces and dental care was covered by the NHS at the time, I had two teeth removed for free. When I was a kid I needed 7 baby teeth removed and they took me to hospital for it. Now I'm paying normal prices, a visit to the hygienist seems extortionate. £200 for a filling, and it doesn't help that a new guy has taken over at my dentist and increased the prices massively.
