Hawley Retainers

HAWLEY RETAINERSA popular option with endless design choices

The most familiar retention option, Excel offers Hawley retainers for both upper and lower arches. The core design features a cuspid to cuspid labial wire that retain the anterior teeth to hold them in place and two clasps for retention. The labial wire (also called the Hawley bow) incorporates two omega loops for adjustment. The Hawley bow and clasps are seated in a removable acrylic palate.

Use and benefits
The Hawley has the longest orthodontic history and is considered by many to be the most effective retainer. The metal wire can be adjusted to maintain treatment or make minor movement of the anterior teeth as needed. Because of minimal occlusal interference, the teeth settle into long term stable bite relationship.

Customizing options
Excel Hawley retainers can be customized with any clasp, finger spring, pontic or acrylic added to the labial bow. A variety of expansion and single tooth movement screws are also available. Excel Hawley retainers can be ordered in a wide range of acrylic colors, decals and patterns to give your patients a customized look. See color chart.
