Why you should download

Acrylic Hawley retainers are often preferred by orthodontists for post-treatment retention due to their durability and adjustability. Traditionally fabricated on top of stone models, Hawley retainers can also be constructed with a digital workflow by manufacturing the appliance over a 3D printed model, greatly improving efficiency and reducing turnaround time. This application guide will teach you how to use a digital workflow to create Hawley retainers, from start to finish.

The application guide will cover the complete workflow, including:
  • Scan
  • Design
