There are two approaches: 1) Remove the bolt; 2) Remove the crank and the bolt with it. Both are viable and option 2 requires no special tools (assuming that it's self-extracting like the one shown in Danno's picture). If your purpose is to wrap the bolt threads in teflon tape, enough of the threads will be exposed once you get the crank off.
But frankly, I doubt that tape will help. More likely you're not supplying enough torque.
How are you torquing it? Do you have a torque wrench?
