In Nepal, Lingual (hidden) braces are available at Shangrila Dental Clinic. This orthodontic system is purely invisible because these braces are placed behind the teeth. That’s why these types of braces are also known as hidden, concealed, incognito, or invisible braces.
Lingual hidden braces are custom-made to fit each patient.
Time for lingual braces treatment
Treatment time is almost the same as that for labial (outside) braces. Every case is different so time can be variable, anywhere from 1-3 years.
