Ask: I don't know where you live but....If. You want to find out the cost of orthodontics in brazil, then email or call the brazillian orthodontic society or the brazillian dental board. If you can track down a brazillian dentist or orthodontist that might answer your questions.

Ask: Orthodontic treatment costs are related to many things: the difficulty of the case, the type of appliances (lingual braces are more difficult), the experience and reputation of the doctor. Brazil should be no different than anywhere else regarding these variables. The best thing to do is ask.

Wide ranging: More importantly, finding a quality orthodontist to provide lingual is your key quest. Educational regulations are more lax in brazil, so some investigation on your part to find an experienced and well-trained orthodontist to provide the more complex lingual treatment will be needed. Expect higher fees for lingual and for a quality doc. Contact dr. Liana pinheiro in rio for her opinion as well.

Would not recommend: Lingual braces. They have their issues-- can cut your tongue, often impact speech, difficult to treat. We tried these for a while and decided not to treat using them. If you need an invisable solution, would strongly recommend you consider invisalign instead. Or better yet, consider clear brackets.
