The Essix™ "invisible retainer" is a thermoformed retainer .040" thick for nonbruxers. It is formed over a plaster model of the entire arch of teeth. Essix™ retainers are less conspicuous, and easier to wear than Hawley retainers. Minor tooth movement can be achieved through a series of Essix™ aligners and setups.
