Don't do it: You may run into a number of problems, including broken roots, excessive bleeding and extreme pain. This is not the time to try and save money.

Bad Idea: Don't do this. You can run into worse and more expensive problems than just paying for the dentist to professionally and hygienically remove it. A dentist can remove it often for less than an oral surgeon if it is loose. See a dentist!
