Wisdom teeth: Wisdom teeth generally erupt between the ages of 17 and 21, but can come in earlier or later. It is best to monitor this through clinical exams and x-rays with a dentist to evaluate whether or not there is room for them to come in or if they need to be removed when it is easier and has less associated risk. Consult with an Oral Surgeon, or your General Dentist.

Age 15 and 24: Wisdom teeth are the last erupting teeth between the ages of 15 and 24.

15-21: Varies. Some as early as 14-15, some never grow in. For best information, see an oral surgeon for exam/rcommendations.

Several causes: The technical term is atrophic glossitis or bald tongue. It is caused by the absence of papilla which are the small bumps that cover the tongue. Diabetes, anemia, celiac disease and certain nutritional deficiencies are common causes as are anti-cancer drugs. It can also be caused by an inherited nerve disorder called riley-day syndrome.
