Hawley Retainer

Once your braces are off, it is always important to wear your retainer! It protects your beautiful smile, helps it to “settle in,” and keeps it in place for you. Some teeth move more than others, but ALL SMILES MUST BE RETAINED. We use Hawley (plastic and wire) and Essix (clear plastic) retainers. You will receive one set of upper and lower Hawleys and one set of upper and lower Essix retainers when your braces are removed. Some orthodontists always use fixed retainers, but we believe they create more problems than they solve.
