Hawley with Welded C-Clasps

This Hawley retainer has a 3-3 labial bow and laser welded C-clasps to the bicuspids.  The welded clasps reduce posterior interference for the opposing while still maintaining adequate retention. Our standard uses a .032 straight wire clasp or a ball clasp hook for increased retention.
