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) On for about 18 months
Night time elastics with invisalign retainers; still...
Double jaw surgery was 6/18/15...
Orthodontics never really ends...
I'm emphatically against extraction orthodontics!

Does the wire on the wraparound seem flimsy since it’s only anchored to the acrylic at one point in the back?
