In brief: No

You will create more damage trying to remove your own teeth.
The wisdom teeth are usually near vital structures such as your sinuses, nerves and major blood vessels. They should eb taken out by someone who is trained in doing the procedure and has the appropriate equipment to remove the teeth.
