Essix Retainersby Pat Laliberte on 02/27/16
We have been noticing some of our essix retainers wearing through lately. Our clients need to realize that some patients would be better served with a hawley retainer. Patients that clench or grind their teeth at night will wear through the thin material of an essix much more than those that don't. A little pre-diagnosis will go a long way towards patient acceptance.
