Pull tooth: See your dentist! self treatment attempts, particularly in operations in the mouth are fraught with hazards you might not appreciate. What if you become infected? What if you damage a nerve or other structure? What if you lose the tooth down your throat--or worse yet, aspirate it in your airway? While "it's just a tooth" seems so simple, things like this could be a disaster!

If you are asking what type of anesthesia should the Dentist use, that's a discussion best answered by your Dentist after examination and xRays.

Pull a tooth: Well lets see. 4 years of College. 4 years of Dental school (10,000 hours). Another 4 years (10,000 hours) of specialty training to b come a specialist Oral Surgeon. That way you dramatically reduce chance of breaking the tooth, breaking your jaw, cause unstoppable bleeding, cause permanent nerve damage with possible facial paralysis, or worse. Tooth extraction is a surgical procedure not DIY.
