In brief: Maybe

Pain meds can help decrease the pain.
I have had a few patients pull their own teeth with no problems but usually they are very loose...

In brief: See a dentist

I would not pull the tooth unless it just falls out.
You can use anbesol or oragel to numb the area until you see the dentist.
