Hawley retainers are a bit advanced over metal retainers. With Hawley retainers, your teeth are surrounded with metal wire that keeps it in place. The advantage of a Hawley retainer is that the metal wires are adjustable and you can set them as per your needs to finish the treatment and continue moving teeth as needed.
Invisalign retainers are clear, smooth and perfectly fit on patient's teeth. Being very durable, it lasts really long & being transparent, it is hard to detect Invisalign braces.
Fixed retainer device is used to straighten the incisors. It contains a passive wire bonded to tongue-side of incisors. Patients have to floss the small space between retainer & teeth regularly as fixed retainers cannot be removed by the patient and cause tartar build-up or gingivitis due to difficulty of flossing while wearing the retainers.
