What is a Hawley Retainer?

A Hawley retainer is the most common and traditional orthodontic retainer available. Hawley retainers have existed for decades and continue to be popular due to their durability, ability to be removed and variety of uses.

A Hawley retainer consists of a thin piece of tongue-shaped acrylic plastic that fits behind your front teeth in the mouth. Attached to the plastic mouthpiece is a small wire which runs in front of the teeth to hold or adjust their position.

Why Do People Get Hawley Retainers?

Hawley retainers can treat a number of orthodontic concerns. Many people get Hawley retainers because they are a well-known and effective method used in orthodontics regularly. Some of the reasons people choose to get Hawley retainers are:

  • Longevity: Hawley retainers ensure longevity with the results of braces. Hawley retainers are proven to hold teeth in place and stabilize the mouth, even after braces.
  • Convenience: Hawley retainers can be removed for special occasions and easy cleaning. Hawley retainers are also ideal if Dr. Irvin recommends wearing a retainer at night or only part of the day.
