Pulling teeth: I would not try to pull it out yourself. Pulling adult teeth is harder than it looks, and the tooth is often broken in the process. It can leave a piece of the tooth or root left in the socket and you will likely end up at the dentist anyway.

Not a good idea!: See a dentist. Infection can be a serious complication!
