Rx not age dependent: Just put braces unto a lovely 72 year old this week to eliminate need for implant/crown. You are absolutely not too mature for braces. See an orthodontic specialist for an examination. No two people are alike. You need an individual opinion about your unique set of circumstances. Besides, braces make you look younger.
