Our custom-made Hawley Retainer is perhaps the most popular type of retainer used for keeping teeth in place after orthodontic treatment. It has been around for decades and continues to be one of the most reliable options. The Hawley retainer is custom designed to fit your individual mouth precisely and comfortably so you can wear your Hawley retainer for hours without any discomfort

There are two wire parts in the back of the retainer for added stability. This is a removable type of retainer, also known as a wire retainer and is an affordable option for keeping your teeth in their optimal position.

Hawley Orthodontic Retainer

Your teeth have been straightened, your smile is worth showing off, and your bite is where it needs to be. Now it's time to pick a retainer to keep all of that work in place.

According to a recent study from the National Institute of Health, Hawley retainers were preferred by 90% of orthodontists for use with an upper or lower dental arch.

These retainers are incredibly strong and durable, especially compared to clear retainers. While they aren’t going to be as durable as permanent retainers (merely because they aren’t permanent), these retainers are still very strong. The wiring allows for that stability that clear retainers lack. Knowing that your retainer is advantageous is always a good thing, isn’t it?

Most people need to wear their retainers all day long in the initial weeks after their braces have been removed. Eventually, you’ll only need to wear your retainer at night. After a year, it might be recommend to transition to wearing your retainer a few times a week to maintain your results.
