Default Healthy Hedgie Teeth?

What do healthy hedgehog teeth look like (aside from obvious not broken/inflamed/rotting)? How many do they usually have? Do they get sets of teeth like other animals?

They can't regrow teeth if they get broken off or chipped. I'm not sure there's an actual standard to measure healthy hedgehog teeth by. In my opinion (although I could be wrong), healthy = not broken, infected, or rotting.

I've read that hedgehogs have between 36-44 teeth. I found a great picture on google of a hedgie with his mouth wide open
