Phone call: To your local dentist. Save the diy projects for home improvement. If you break the tooth or have an abscess or sever a blood vessel, what are you going to do? I takes dentists 8 years to earn the license to perform a service that you propose to do to yourself, without any experience! please do not attempt to start something you may not be able to finish.

Bottom molar: There is no easy way. Only a qualified dentist should perform the extraction.

Molar: If it is a loose baby molar and felt shaking, you can keep loosing it with your finger back and forth. You might be surprised that it came out quicker than you thought.

Hope I make my point: Patient beware! even for a trained dentist, what often appears to be an easy extraction turns out to be extremely difficult, even with 4 or more years of training, a dental assistant, adequate light, suction and anesthesia, not to mention the right instruments. If you are a dentist, you might get lucky. If not, see a dentist. Even some dentist don't want to tackle certain extractions.
