Standard Hawley vs Wrap Around Hawley

If you have finished with your orthodontic treatment and are wearing retainers (or will be soon), this is a special place to connect with others in your (enviable) situation. Ask a question or make a comment about life post-braces.

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?

Mine is comfortable; I also have acrylic on the wire in the front for better control of teeth.
Round 3 (lifetime) Damon stainless applied 3/16/20 (after 4 weeks attempting invisalign)
Upper ceramics 5/21/14, Lower stainless 5/28/14
Double jaw surgery was 6/18/15. Estimated time Jan 2016; still on at my 2 year anniversary...
Braces removed 7/20/18; upper and lower Hawley and Essix retainers with bonded lower too.
I'm emphatically against extraction orthodontics!
