How many baby teeth are there?

20.

Human children have 20 baby teeth. Baby teeth, also called deciduous teeth, start to appear at about six to thirty-three months of age. They are made up of 4 central incisors, 4 lateral incisors, 4 canine teeth, 4 first molars, and 4 secondary molars.  By  the age of six to twelve these teeth are replaced by permanent teeth in a process called exfoliation.
