Flat Bows (Preformed Flat Labial Bow Arches)

Regular price

Our Preformed Flat Labial Hawley Bows are manufactured using .032 diameter  3/4 (medium hard) spring temper wire

These have a flattened anterior segment, with a round posterior segment.  This flattened area gives the flatbow better surface contact, stability & control.  The flattened rectangular section is measured from inside the edges of the cuspid loops.

In the drop-down menu, you also have the option of purchasing extra-long flatbows, perfect for making flat wrap-around retainer wires. Look for the sizes marked with an XL.

Sold 10 per pack.  These are also called Flat Hawley Labial Archwires.

We also sell Loopless Flat Bow Labials here.

Here is a chart of our Flatbow sizes below along with item numbers for easy reference.  

We also have a printable Flatbow Archwire Size Chart here.  Here is a handy printable chart of all of our flatbow/labial archwires.
