Thank you, Chris!
For those interested: The book is still available from Abrams Books (the publisher who maintains the Overlook Press imprint), in hardcover and paperback editions. The latter is a revision published in 1983, with a new preface by the author. The cover was slightly adjusted, too, with bigger type, but still in Glaser Stencil.

In 1974, the book was also issued in German, French, and Italian editions and distributed by Graphic Books.
Thanks for posting so quickly, Florian.
In the same book, Glaser calls his stencil typeface 'Neo Futura’.
My copy is from the first printing in 1973. I think I got it when I was in college, around 1975 or so. In all these years, I never noticed until now that the N’s in Glaser Stencil on the cover are different from the commonly available version and kind of appears to be upside down.
It turns out that this is the original version available from Photo Lettering. There are other difference, too, like a different W and a second O with three breaks, and it was called Glaser Futura Stencil.
The other variations of Baby Teeth are also in the Photo Lettering catalogs.
I kinda wish Glaser had kept the triangle ‘I’ from his sign sample for Baby Teeth.
