It is never too late to get braces, as long as the bone support, oot length, and periodontal environment can handle dental movement.  Once teeth are moved to new positions, creating a stable bite and possible alignment for future crowns, bridges, and/or implants, the peridontal envrionment is actually improved, thereby increasing longenvity of your teeth.

 No, its never too late because healthy teeth can be moved at any age. Orthodontists can improve the smile of practically anyone. In fact, orthodontists regularly treat patients in their 40′s, 50′s and older!
