Dental formula is 2123/2123 so in lower jaw total 16 =right + left half.

The given answer is wrong. In lower jaw the total number of teeth present in human is 16

2123 is the dental formula .

incisors (2)
canine (1)
premolar (2)
molar (3) .
Total =8 ( in half of the lower jaw)

so, 8+8 =16

A normal adult mouth has 32 teeth, which (except for wisdom teeth) have erupted by about age 13: Incisors (8 total): The middlemost four teeth on the upper and lower jaws
