Dr. Adair has a unique perspective on orthodontics. After years of witnessing what didn’t work, he sought out an approach that would give patients beautiful smiles, better facial balance and increase their overall health. He read many medical journals, studied orthodontic literature and attended lectures all over the country. It became very evident how critical the airway is and how so many long-term health problems are rooted in a compromised airway. Dr. Adair took his knowledge and passion and opened GV Smiles Sacramento in hopes to create beautiful smiles and healthier people. At GV Smiles Sacramento we look at the long-term well-being of each patient as well as esthetics when carefully creating an individualized treatment plan.
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 Sacramento 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 Sacramento 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 Sacramento team are trained to utilize unique airway orthodontic treatments and methods that are proven to help reduce or eliminate sleep apnea issues and snoring.
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.
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 Sacramento we use icon resin treatment to reverse the effects. Our Sacramento 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.

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.
Skeletal Expansion: We provide skeletal expansion treatment at GV Smiles Pediatric Orthodontics Sacramento 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 Orthodontics Sacramento 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.
