STANDARD HAWLEY DESIGN
The Hawley is a removable orthodontic appliance that can be used pre or post orthodontic treatment. The Hawley can be used in treatment to retain corrections already made with braces or to make minor adjustments in tooth position and relationship for aesthetic or physiological purposes.
Our standard Hawley consists of a .030” stainless steel, cuspid to cuspid labial bow and a set of ball clasps mesial to the first molars with a full palate of acrylic and rounded anterior. We also offer a variety of different wires sizes and types, clasping, and acrylic trimming options to meet your patient’s needs.
WRAPAROUND HAWLEY DESIGN
The Wraparound Hawley is a removable appliance typically used post-treatment to retain corrections made with braces. Wraparound Hawleys can also be used to make minor adjustments in tooth position and relationship.
Our standard Wraparound Hawley consists of a .032” stainless steel wire with adjustment loops on the cuspids and the labial wire extending to the second molars. If stabilizing wires are requested, our standard placement is distal to the laterals using .020” stainless steel wire. Design modifications can be made, such as placement of the stabilizing wires, the placement of the occlusal crossover in the posterior or a wraparound design soldered to clasps on the first molars. Our standard wraparound soldered to clasps would consist of .032” stainless steel wire with adjustment loops on the cuspids and the labial wire soldered to Adams clasps on the first molars. We also offer a variety of different wire sizes and types, clasping, and acrylic trimming options to meet your patient’s needs.
