How necessary is it to get my bite fixed at the age of 35?

Hello, I'm 35 and have been recommended by my dentist to get my bite fixed. I have an overbite, tooth crowding and a rotated upper left inciser. I don't care about the aesthetics, I like the way I look now, but I do care about my health. I don't have any crowns or implants, only fillings. In case of braces I am afraid of complications like gum tissue recession, bone or root resorption, enamel cracks or tooth decay. Moreover, my teeth can get back to their place again, and they won't be fixed in my bone as well as they are now after all these movements. Do I really have to undergo this treatment at my age? In what case can keep my teeth and gums healthy longer - if I do, or if I don't?
