Many people are not sure about their cat's age. Perhaps they rescued their cat, adopted it from a shelter, etc. However, we can determine the age by analyzing its teeth age chart.

Let’s look up the cat teeth age chart and see the dental situation for your kitten’s developmental stages. • 0 – 2 weeks of age = no teeth at all

3 – 4 weeks = The first teeth that appear are the incisor 5 – 8 weeks = Kittens have all their baby teeth 12 weeks = Kittens start to lose their baby teeth

3 – 4 months of age = Cats start growing permanent teeth 6–7 months = Cats should have all permanent teeth 1-year-old = Cats’ teeth should be clean and white

1 – 2 years = Some cats gain tartar on their back teeth 3 – 5 years = Most have tartar on all of their teeth 5 – 10 years = Many cats have tooth disease 10 – 15 years = Many are missing one (or more)

How Many Teeth Does a Cat Have?

Cats have 26 baby teeth in total. After these teeth fall out, cats gain permanent teeth. Adult cats usually have 30 permanent teeth.

Until they are around 4 weeks old, they drink only milk from the mother cat, and by the time they are 8 weeks old, cats have all 26 baby teeth.
