Picture of my new hawley retainer attached. It is much less bulky than its predecessor.

I am dreading getting my one of these.

I'm sure your ortho will offer you fixed and/or essix retainers if that is what you prefer. I think hawleys are less common nowadays, at least in the UK. I would not have wanted a hawley for 24/7 wear because of the aesthetics. But to wear at home to supplement my bonded retainer I have found the hawley preferable to the essix. All a matter of personal choice...

Good luck with the rest of your treatment
