Ball Clasp

The ball clasp works well on children that have no or very little undercuts. This clasp sometimes can interfere with the occlusal as it crosses over the occlusal.

Arrow Clasp

This clasp is similar to a ball clasp.

C Clasp

This clasping follows the gingival margin sometimes it starts from the mesial of the tooth to be clasped, but most commonly it enters from the distal and ends at the mesial interproximal. This clasp is an excellent clasp for permanent teeth, when used from the distal of the last molar because of no wire over the occlusal to interfere with the bite.

Adams Clasp

To provide optimal retention when buccal undercuts are evident.

Finger Clasp

A great clasp to use in mixed dentition with lack of undercuts. 

Occlusal Rests

Keeps the lower retainer from sliding down onto the tissue and helps reinforce the lingual portion of the retainer.

Z Spring

Used to move a tooth facially, the open-ended part of the spring can be used to move the tooth further on the mesial or distal facially.

Z spring with helical coil

Same as a Z spring, but the helical coils provide far more force.

finger spring with helical coil

This is the same as a finger spring, but with a helical to provide more force.

finger spring

The finger spring can move a tooth either mesial or distally.

finger spring with posterior helical coil

Same as a finger spring but is used in the molar area to move mesial as well as distal.

C Spring

Used to close spaces.

Hawley 3 x 3 flat wire bow

The flat bow helps keep the wire from moving up or down and can eliminate keeper wires. This bow can also be used with recurve loops placed to Doctor specifications.
