At 81 years old should you wear braces?

How long would it take? bottom teeth very crooked and my bite is way, way off.

Age Limit for Braces?

Why not? The only reason you would not be a candidate for braces at 81, 91 or 101 is if the teeth are not healthy enough to move. As long as you have adequate bone support then moving teeth is beneficial to your health as well as improving the aesthetics of your smile. Straight teeth are healthier teeth. 

Good luck!
