Pediatric Dentistry: At GV Smiles Fairfield we provide a range of treatment options and services for your child’s comfort and well-being including cleanings, fillings, x-rays, orthodontics and diagnosing teeth and jaw issues. We are careful to use child friendly terms and are available to answer any questions you or your child may have during or after your appointments.
Orthodontic Services: Dr. Adair looks at the long-term well-being of the patient as well as esthetics when carefully creating an individualized treatment plan. At GV Smiles Fairfield we focus on airway health, jaw alignment and a patient’s bite when creating an orthodontic plan that will give patients beautiful smiles, better facial balance and increase their overall health.
Dental Sleep: Screening for airway issues early on in a child’s life, can prevent or reverse many health issues. Some symptoms in children include snoring, grinding, bed wetting, digestive problems, poor focus, irritability, hyperactivity, dark under the eyes and restless sleep. Airway friendly dentistry is a multidisciplinary offering at GV Smiles Fairfield that provides an early assessment and diagnosis, along with treatment options.
Airway Orthodontics: When the airway becomes obstructed or partially obstructed, it can lead to poor sleep and cause many health problems. This rarely improves without some kind of intervention. Dr. Adair and his Fairfield team are trained to utilize unique airway orthodontic treatments and methods that are proven to help reduce or eliminate sleep apnea issues and snoring.
Alternatives to General Anesthesia: We understand that dental anxiety is common among children, especially during invasive procedures. At GV Smiles Fairfield we offer laughing gas, also known as nitrous oxide, which has been safely and successfully used in dentistry for many decades. It can easily be reversed with a few minutes of breathing normal air and it carries no lasting effects. We are often able to avoid the need for anesthetic altogether by offering minimally-invasive alternatives to traditional dental treatments, such as, SDF treatment and SMART fillings, and Hall crowns instead of conventional crowns.

Crozat Appliances: The appliance is removable and gently applies pressure behind the teeth. This arrangement means that a Crozat appliance is largely hidden when worn, in contrast to conventional metal braces. While the concept of Crozat appliances may be almost a century old, their inconspicuous appearance is appreciated by many modern children and adolescents.
Hall Crowns: Children’s molars sometimes become so decayed that crowns are necessary to protect and preserve these teeth. Traditional crown placement involves drilling cavities and other invasive tooth preparation. GV Smiles Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics Fairfield provides an alternative with Hall crowns. Hall crowns require no drilling or other preparation, they are suitable for baby teeth that will eventually be replaced by permanent teeth, and they help save children much anxiety, discomfort, and apprehension.
Icon Resin Infiltration: Fixed orthodontic appliances, such as metal braces, sometimes leave noticeable white spots or lesions on the teeth when the appliance is removed. At GV Smiles Fairfield we use icon resin treatment to reverse the effects. Our Fairfield team applies a special composite resin to the demineralized enamel, restoring the appearance of the teeth. Icon resin infiltration is very minimally-invasive, requiring no drilling, injections, or anesthesia. The entire process typically takes less than an hour, and results are superior to teeth whitening and can last several years.
Minimally-Invasive SDF treatment: a comfortable, minimally-invasive alternative to the drilling and anesthetic injections typically used to fill cavities – silver diamine fluoride (SDF) procedures are antibacterial and kill off and prevent the regrowth of harmful bacteria.
Nutritional Counseling: Dietary factors have a big effect on cavities and other dental problems, especially in children who are already prone to dental issues. Our team at GV Smiles Fairfield will examine your child’s eating habits and make appropriate recommendations.
Orthotropics: Orthodontics focuses on positioning the teeth and bite alignment which helps improve the growth and development of the jaws, face, and airway. Children are great orthotropic patients because their bones are still growing. Dr. Adair has over 18 years of experience in orthotropics.
Reopening Extraction Spaces: Tooth extractions when the jaws are too small to fit all of the adult teeth, can result in even smaller jaws and lead to many issues including jaw clicking or jaw pain, sleep apnea, headaches, narrower smiles, and recessed jaws. At GV Smiles Fairfield we often treat ERRS – Extraction Retraction Regret Syndrome, by reopening extraction spaces. We are able to improve or eliminate sleep apnea, TMD, and other problems and offer children a better chance for optimal oral health as they grow.
Skeletal Expansion: We provide skeletal expansion treatment at GV Smiles Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics Fairfield to help patients with jaw size discrepancies. We use orthodontic devices to expand the upper jaw gradually to the appropriate size. Skeletal expansion offers a more conservative and less invasive treatment course than surgical intervention and often better results and greater benefits!
Sleep Apnea and Airway Dentistry: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is characterized by pauses in breathing during sleep. At GV Smiles Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics Fairfield we offer many non-invasive yet highly successful options to treat obstructed airways. These measures include sleep oral appliances, orthotropics, reopening extraction spaces, airway orthodontics, and more.
SMART Fillings: The silver modified atraumatic restorative technique (SMART) is an alternative to traditional methods for filling cavities which usually require drilling the tooth before is filled. SMART is a minimally-invasive approach used in conjunction with silver diamine fluoride (SDF) therapy. At GV Smiles Fairfield we use a mercury-free composite resin filling and SDF to eliminate harmful bacteria and treat the area of decay.
