How long does it take for Wisdom teeth to come in?

I am 21 and have still not gotten my wisdom teeth in completely, actually my wisdom teeth have been trying to come in for the past 2 years. Is that normal? Does it usually take that long for wisdom teeth to come in?

my first wisdom tooth took 6 years to come out starting at age 18 .and had cavities the same year it completely erupted.I went for a filling and its fine .Second one begin to erupt 5 years later and is under the gum for 2 years .x rays show its coming in a horizontal way.
Its okay for them to take long but make sure by gettign an x ray if they are coming in right direction

  1. I’m almost 40 and none of my wisdom teeth "came in", they all turned sideways and stayed under the gum, pushing against the other teeth.

    Wisdom teeth are a law unto themselves, they are an evolutionary hangover.

  2. EVERYONE IS DIFFERENT, MINE NEVER DID COME IN COMPLETELY AND I’M 47, MINE STARTED COMING IN AT 19, SO YEAH IT’S NORMAL BUT NO TELLING HOW LONG THEY WILL DONE GROWING IN.

  3. I have friends that have had wisdom teeth at 14 years and others when they were in their 30’s. It all depends. In a couple more generations wisdom teeth will not have to be pulled because we (Humans) will have adapted.
    Two generations ago did not have wisdom teeth. That is why they call them that.

    they are impacted.
    It sounds like you may need them to be removed.
