Hawley Retainer

The Hawley retainer is the work horse for newly repositioned dentition. Fabricated to address a number of orthodontic concerns, the Hawley retainer from Drake Laboratories can be completely color customized to your patient’s desire. These removable appliances are expertly designed to meet your patient’s unique orthodontic needs, from closing diastemas to holding palatal expansion prior to ortho treatment and maintaining post-ortho results. The well-known metal and acrylic design is expertly crafted by our world class technicians. We understand the urgency to provide an orthodontic retainer to maintain treatment results, and work to create these products to your specifications within a short timeframe.

Invisible Retainers

With clear choices for orthodontics on the rise, invisible retainers have also elevated to high demand. Similar to a Hawley retainer, these invisible orthodontic appliances work to maintain teeth positioning following active orthodontic treatment. Drake’s fabrication technique involves vacuum-form processes for a precise, custom fit.

The frameworks fit great! We haven’t had any issues seating them. Our other lab took over a month to get them back to us, so we are very happy with your lab time.Dr. Willis

Space Maintainers

Space maintainers from Drake Laboratories are designed to hold an edentulous space, meeting a variety of oral needs. Fixed or removable, bilateral unilateral, maxillary or mandibular, our space maintainers are a key component in maintaining spacing for a short or extended period of time. Whether your patient requires a place holder while awaiting permanent tooth eruption, tooth replacement or future reconstruction needs, our orthodontic appliances are expertly produced to your precise prescription.

Gelb Appliance

The Gelb appliance, also known as the flat plan TMD splint, is a muscle deprogrammer constructed of posterior acrylic pads connected by a metal lingualized bar. The design of this appliance facilitates comfort and speech, affording adequate space for lingual movement. Typically fabricated to a centric bite, the Gelb appliance is created for TMD patients requiring splint therapy involving relaxation of the disc prior to wearing a pull-forward appliance. Frequent monitoring is recommended while wearing the Gelb appliance. Use of this appliance may require adjustments to the materials as treatment progresses and jaw positioning changes. When your patient requires a Gelb appliance, rely on Drake Laboratories for accuracy, expertise and maximum quality.
