  •  It must be some gum tissue or the pulp which is holding the tooth. You can pull the tooth out but it is better if you go to dentist and get it pulled out so that chances of complication and infection are not there. If you choose to pull out yourself then put minimal force so that gums are not injured and no harm is done to permanent tooth bud.
