I got a hawley retainer in my 30s
« on: 31. August 2020, 02:16:21 AM »
Just got top and bottom hawley retainers. Thought my teeth were shifting and my fixed retainer broke years ago and was a pain. Thought the clear retainers would need to be replaced too often or I would lose them so I tried the hawley retainers. Didn’t contemplate the lispyness! Pretty embarrassing talking to people. Got them on Thursday so been pretty weird weekend trying to get used to them. Not sure I made the right decision but too late now. Have to wear them full time for 6 months then just at night. Anyone else had Hawley retainers in their 30s or older?

I’d have to email it to you. What’s your email?

How do you like them? What was your original treatment and how long have you had retainers?

They are ok. Didn’t really expect them to be so big. Been hard getting used to them Over the weekend. Talking is weird. Only had them since Thursday. Glad there are similar people to talk to about it. I had sagitall removable brace when I was younger but this time just braces so not had anything like these retainers since I was 8!! Did you have anything at an older age?

Update. Been pretty good so far. Wearing them pretty much full time. Not when I have meetings but working from home which has made it a lot easier. Just take them out if I have a video call. Not what I expected but my teeth will be straight so that’s the main thing.
