Hawley Retainer

Hawley retainers are the most popular and most versatile type of final retention device.  With a metal wire that extends cuspid-to-cuspid, anchored by an acrylic arch, the Hawley retainer maintains the alignment of the teeth. 

Hawley retainers can be adapted to incorporate nearly any additional component, such as anterior springs, bite plans, QCM bows, etc.  Additionally, the metal wire can be adjusted to slightly shift teeth into a more desirable position.

Any type of clasp can be integrated with the Hawley.  Simply tell us your needs and we can accommodate them.
