In brief: Wisdom tooth

Wisdom tooth eruption is usually slower than other molars.
Each person is different however. Some have the to erupt partially and may cause problems. See your dentist if your wisdom tooth is not coming out right or is painful.

In brief: Variable

It can take a few months to a few years to never. Normal eruption age ranges from about 18-22, female earlier than male.
Some are early some are late. If there is room they may come in. If there is not room then they remain impacted. Most need to be removed but not all. See your dentist for a consultation if concerned.
