Re: Help Me Choose a Retainer

Good choice! I've been wearing a lower hawley for 7 years and it does help with grinding. Also I find them very comfortable as well.

Re: Standard Hawley vs Wrap Around Hawley

Is the upper wraparound Hawley comfortable? I have been wearing a lower standard hawley for 7 years now faithfully. Been considering getting a upper wraparound Hawley since my Top teeth have been shifting?

Re: Bruxism With Retainers

I've been wearing a lower Hawley for over 6 yrs now when I sleep and let me tell you it doesn't make me grind or clench my teeth. When I don't wear it I have occasional pain.

Re: Top back molars shifting outward. suggestions. please

Sounds like a plan. I'm hoping that only a retainer will fix the problem nothing else. Will have to make a visit. I'm thinking a wraparound hawley may fix the bite issue.

Re: back top molars shifting.

Yes i have worn a clear retainer only at night. Problem is though its very uncomfortable compared to a hawley retainer. I wear a hawley on my bottom teeth which is very comfortable. I have had my retainers for over 2 years,but rarely wore my clear one because of discomfort. Had my wisdom teeth remov...

back top molars shifting.

What would be the best retainer for shifting teeth? My back top molars are not aligned with my other teeth. I omly suggest a upper hawley would work. Any suggestions

How long does a hawley retainer last?

I've been wearing a lower hawley retainer for nearly a year now to stop shifting on my bottom teeth. There is no problem with the retainer,but I was wondering how long a retainer can last if kept in proper care.

Re: Two Retainers?

I just received my retainers today. I can tell you there is a difference in price depending on what retainer who are wearing. The essix i believe is similar to a tru-tain retainer its clear that usually is cheaper than the hawley which i wear on my bottom teeth. My orthodontist told me that the hawl...

Re: Hawley Retainer Question?

Got my upper tru tain retainer today and a lower hawley. I'm quite surprised how comfortable they both are. The hawley doesn't even feel like i even have it in. Good thing too I just have to wear them at night. I have them to prevent further crowding.
