See a dentist : Unless you are dealing with a baby tooth in a child that is very loose you should not pull out your tooth. See ba dentist for this

Tips for extraction: Yes. Speak to a dentist whom you have confidence in and discuss this. Not sure if you are referring to a baby tooth for your child or you know one of your own teeth needs to be removed. That's also why we can't give you much more advice. In any case it's relatively easy if done properly. Most patients of mine say, "that was it?"

This sounds : Painful. Pain of a tooth is not normal. Please seek evaluation by your dentist to find out the cause and to determine if treatment is needed.
