Puppies have 28 teeth and normal adult dogs have 42! They have  22 in the mandible or lower jaw, and 20 in the maxilla or upper jaw. In each jaw there are 6 incisors, 2 canines, and 8 premolars. There are 6 molars in the lower jaw and 4 in the upper jaw. In adult dogs, approximate age can be determined by checking the wear on the incisors.
