Expansion Plates, Hawley Retainers and Space Maintainers.

Expansion Plate

An expansion plate is an appliance used to widen the upper jaw and to correct any bite discrepancies caused by an overcrowded or narrow upper arch.

Hawley Retainer

Hawley Retainers are ideal for patients who have recently undergone orthodontic work as they prevent teeth migration and are popular due to their durability. They are easily removed for eating and oral hygiene and do not stain easily

Space Maintainer

A Space Maintainer is a permanent retainer that is designed to keep adjacent teeth apart when a tooth has been extracted or a tooth has not erupted yet. This ensures that teeth do not migrate into the open gap. They are not visible to others, are extremely durable and can not be damaged or lost accidentally.
