Phlanges are bones of the fingers and toes. There are three phlanax sections in each finger and toe except the thumb and big toe,which have only two bones. Twelve bones of the four fingers, two bones in the thumb of the right hand, and twelve bones of the four fingers, two bones in the thumb of the left hand. That makes 14 phlanges of each hand. And 28 for both. But only if you were born with all of your fingers.

The total number of phalanges in a human hand is fourteen.

Your thumb has two phalanges and each of the other four digits have three. So, if you add them all together, you have fourteen in each hand.
