My baby has his first tooth!

He's grown a fang first - I've been told this is rare.

do I start brushing his tooth?

Also do I get him in at a dentist?

Yes it is best to start brushing teeth as soon as they are there.

I would also recommend getting them in at the dentist. Our little one went from six months and even though he didn’t open his mouth the dentist said it’s mainly good for the baby to get used to going so that they won’t be scared later.

Yes, start brushing as soon as he has teeth. I tried to register my baby at the dentist but where we live due to Covid they weren't taking on new patients. I just spoke to my own dentist for advice.
