Age is not a limiting factor when it comes to straightening your teeth! Whether you're 15 or 59, it's never too late to achieve a straighter smile. Your overall health and suitability for orthodontic treatment are more important considerations. We recommend scheduling a consultation with orthodontist to discuss your options and create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs. Your medications and medical history will also be taken into account to ensure your safety and the effectiveness of the treatment. Don't hesitate to reach out to us to begin your journey to a straighter smile!
If you are an adult with natural healthy teeth, gums and supporting bones you may have orthodontic/braces at any age.
My dear, never is too late to do anything including your teeth. But like other treatments, not always we are good candidates to undergo some procedures. When moving teeth, your dentist must be aware of the state of your teeth in general including supporting tissues (gums, bone for example) as well as overall health. So, please do not feel hopeless, you still can be a good patient to straight your teeth.
Good bless you.

Age typically isn't an issues when it comes to straightening your teeth. The things to look at would be the condition of your teeth, its supporting structures. and your overall health.
You are never too old to get braces, so you can get it at any age. But if you could get Invisalign, you can essentially achieve the same results, sometimes even quicker, and it is gentler on your teeth and gums.
There really is no age that is too late to get them straightened. However, we do take into account age and the health of your gums/jawbone when deciding where and how far to move things
No age is necessarily too old or too young. What matters is the current state of your oral hygiene, what you desire from orthodontic treatment, and how much you want to invest into orthodontics.
Case by case basis, if you have good periodontal/gum health, any age, but it might take longer the older you are.
Never too old!! Whether you are 10 or 80, the process of straightening teeth is the exact same and you are never too old for braces or Clear Aligners. Adults have denser bone tissue than children, so it may take a little bit longer to move your teeth, but not by much.
