Pulling would be nice. Mine were cut out. Blech.
I thought for most people those teeth basically don't have a big root so they are quite easy to be removed.
Well, I didn't want to go into details, but I think the dentist put something in mid of it (to break it apart first), and then extracted the rest. I had it this way for one (other 1 or 2 came off very easily). But he's really good at removing teeth - fast and efficient (told me it's the easiest work: 5-10 mins and $100 in pocket lol! ).
