I also hate my arch..way to narrow and more narrow than before I had braces. Too much buccal corridor showing. That's the space between sides of teeh and mouth when smiling.

I hate it !

Here's a great forum where you CAN ask questions about different hosts and what's even better the host owners have their own section to answers questions.

The only problem I see with having both is if the ortho "tweaks" the hawley to make any adjustments to your teeth. If you go back to the essix mold, you would see any adjustment progress. I didn't think of this. Hopefully I won't need any tweaking but good info and something to think about. :) Than...

In case anyone isn't aware there are 2 diffrent types of essix retainers.

You have the regular set and the other type which looks the same but it's for people who grind their teeth and is made stronger .

2 Sets Of Retainer's Anyone ? Set Of Essix / Set Of Hawleys

My braces are going to be removed next month so I asked what type of retainer's they use.

I was told I'm getting 2 sets ..one set of essix and one set of hawleys.

They do it this way so in case something happens to one we will have a backup set.

Anyone else get 2 sets ?

Thanks :)

"the lower arch will move faster because it is less firmly anchored" The upper arch is more porous then the lower arch.Lower arch is much more solid as it does all the chewing /grinding and that's the way they are and need to be that way. Lower teeth move faster due to the fact the lower anterior te...
