How many teeth do adults have?
Humans usually have 32 permanent (adult) teeth. On each side of each jaw, we have 2 incisors, 1 canine, 2 premolars (also called bicuspids), and 3 molars. Third molars, called "wisdom teeth", may never erupt into the mouth or form at all. In some rare cases of hyperdontia, fourth and fifth molars may be formed.
