  • At age of 59, if the teeth are moving, that can be due to bone loss or gum problem. For this you have to go to dentist and get the treatment done. This is called as pathological migration. The braces treatment depends on extent of bone loss or the gum problem. If your dentist feels that your teeth are in good health and they can be moved by braces then you can go for them. for more info on adult othodontics you can read this article.... http://www.identalhub.com/articlecategory-braces-21.aspx
