Manufacturing Hawley Retainers on 3D Printed Models With the Form 2

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.
