How Many Teeth Does A Cat Have?
18 big teeth (10 premolars, 4 canines, and 4 molars) and 12 incisors (which are the little tiny ones at the front of the cat’s mouth). The big, long fang-like teeth are the canines and are the tools used by cats for grabbing their prey. The molars are the teeth used for most eating and chewing, and are generally the ones that become problematic as cats age. Cat teeth are specifically designed for meat eating.
Like humans, kittens have baby teeth which fall out and are replaced by permanent teeth – usually at around 7 months.
