Retainers in orthodontics are dental appliances used to maintain the alignment and stability of teeth after the completion of orthodontic treatment. They play a crucial role in preventing teeth from shifting back to their original positions and ensuring the long-term success of orthodontic corrections.
A Mandibular Hawley Appliance is most often comprised of stainless steel clips (clasps) on the posterior teeth, a wire (labial bow) across the front teeth, and a polished acrylic framework along the inside of the mouth, reinforced with stainless steel wires.
