Not to my knowledge, I have heard of someone in their 70s getting braces. And it is becoming more and more popular for people in their 40s and 50s to have their teeth straightened. In a lot of cases it isn't about cosmetics, but about a healthy bite ~ the state of your teeth has quite an impact on your overall health. It is never too late to improve your self-esteem either!

There really isn't an age limit for braces. You are pretty much never too old to have them on. If you meant age minimun, then that depends on the person and the orthodontist. If there is crowding or something that is concerning most orthodontists will do a free consult to let you know the plan for your mouth.

Do braces hurt while putting them on?

To me the braces doesn't hurt. Before thinking of getting braces think of a person putting super glue on your teeth it doesn't hurt that bad. Then you can choose your color for your braces 1 time every month. But if you put your braces like when you are 17 it hurts more so I recommend you to do your braces as soon as possibleI took out my braces already. =]
