Hi 1 months is still very young. In case if it's not giving you issue in feeding and the baby is also comfortable , you can probably delay it for another month or so Regards

hello, it can be removed at any time. if it is causing problem during breast feeding then its better to take it out. you can take care by cleaning it with soft cloth after the baby has drank milk.

Hi.  If the tooth is loose it can be removed immediately I would suggest you to visit a pedodontist asap.X rays will help the pedodontist understand the situation and reach a diagnosis.
Health Tips
The natal tooth could cause irritation  to the baby's tongue if its left untreated.

The earlier the better. But it is better to get an x ray done. If they are early erupted milk teeth then the treatment is different. Meet a pediatric dentist for further guidance and support. Regards
