Braces for Teens in Rockford & Grand Rapids MI - Heinz Orthodontics

Your 5-Star Provider of Braces for Teens in the Rockford - Grand Rapids MI Area

Hi, this is Dr. Heinz. I sincerely believe that a gorgeous smile transforms confidence, which then opens doors for your inner beauty to shine. I see personalities shine through all the time here when smile journey’s are complete and it is just the coolest thing to watch. I have seen kids achieve things at school, choir, sports, etc. that they were not able to achieve before their smile transformation. Why? It goes back to what I believe in above that once their smile journey happens their confidence and inner beauty then shines through.

What a difference it makes! When you arrive we will show you a really cool technology where you will get to see your smile in a 3d rendering on the computer that shows you where you are today and where we will take you at the end of treatment. You will love it!

Braces are made up of 2 important parts: the bracket and the archwire. We will attach brackets to each of your teeth, and use the archwires throughout your treatment to gently position your teeth into a more preferred position.

While the beginning of your braces treatment can result in some uncomfortableness, it definitely doesn’t hurt! A little bit of over the counter tylenol or ibuprofen will knock any soreness you might have out.

While some adjustments might need to be made after you get your braces on, that doesn’t mean you’ll need to stop doing the things you love! You’ll still be able to enjoy your extracurricular activities, even during orthodontic treatment.

There are a couple of food restrictions when you have braces. Once you start treatment, Dr.Heinz will review all restrictions with you.

We recommend brushing after every meal, or three times a day, in order to keep your teeth and gums healthy!

Yes, you definitely do! Your dentist will ensure that your teeth and gums are staying healthy during your orthodontic treatment.

Why Our Patients Love Us

I was referred to two orthodontists in the Rockford area and chose Dr. Heinz based on Google reviews. The reviews don’t lie, that’s for sure! All of the staff, including the orthodontist made my kids feel like they’d known them forever. My kiddo is shy even around family and he was outgoing with them from the moment we started. He’s so excited for this adventure of braces and I’m so thankful I chose this office to help us.
