Hawley Retainer Question?

#1 Post by jrm »

I was just wondering something. I will be wearing a lower hawley retainer next month and wanted to know if the retainer would not only keep my teeth in place,but will it correct minor crowding.?

Hawleys can fix a lot of things, but we can't answer those questions for you. You should ask your orthodontist about this. If you feel you have minor crowding issues in your lower teeth, it may be something that can be fixed before your braces come off. Let your ortho know you feel those teeth are crowded, and see what your options are. The retainer will have to be specially designed to fix that crowding if that is the route your ortho takes.

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.
