- + Night Guards and Snore Guards
Our skilled dentist provides both night guards and snore guards, which are both worn only while sleeping. Night guards are used to prevent teeth grinding and clenching (also known as bruxism). Teeth grinding and clenching can lead to headaches, jaw pain, and worn and cracked teeth. Night guards cover your teeth and prevent bruxism while allowing you to sleep comfortably. If you suspect that you may suffer from bruxism, please contact the dental office of John R. Conner Jr., DDS. Dr. Conner will examine your mouth for signs of bruxism and provide a night guard to prevent teeth grinding and its serious consequences.
We also provide snore guards at our dental office in Salt Lake City, Utah for our patients who snore. Snoring is caused by airway obstructions during sleep; our snore guards work by keeping the airway open during sleep. Your snore guard will fit your smile comfortably so you can sleep peacefully. If you snore, we encourage you to contact us today to schedule your consultation with Dr. Conner.
- + Periodontal Treatment
At our Salt Lake dental office, we provide scaling and root planing periodontal treatments to halt the progression of periodontal disease (gum disease) and to help you return to optimal oral health. Periodontal disease is a condition caused by bacteria; when left untreated, periodontal disease can result in loss of teeth, bone, and gum tissue. Scaling and root planing are deep cleaning methods designed to remove bacteria and encourage the growth of healthy gum tissue. Your caring dentist, Dr. John Conner, may refer severe cases of periodontal disease to a periodontist, who is a dentist specializing in the care of gum tissue. Common symptoms of periodontal disease include:
-Tender, swollen gums
-Red gums that bleed easily
-Persistent bad breath
-Receding gums or teeth that appear longer than normal
If you suffer from any of these symptoms, we encourage you to contact us soon. We are dedicated to helping you maintain and achieve good oral health.

We recommend that you visit our dental office every six months for a regular dental cleaning and exam. Routine dental visits allow us to prevent tooth decay and periodontal disease by providing a thorough cleaning and catching signs of any dental problems as early as possible. Digital X-rays help our dentist to detect signs of dental problems as well. Dental sealants and fluoride treatments provide further protection against tooth decay. It is also essential to brush your teeth least twice every day and floss at least once daily to maintain good dental health. We welcome you to contact our Salt Lake City dental office today to learn more about preventive dentistry. We are committed to helping you stay in the best of oral health!
- + Sedation Dentistry
Does dental anxiety prevent you from visiting the dentist? Our dentist and dental team are devoted to ensuring that you have a positive, enjoyable dental experience at our office in Salt Lake City, Utah. We provide nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, to help you feel more relaxed and comfortable during your dental visit. Nitrous oxide is a gas that you inhale during your dental treatment; nitrous oxide will not make you sleep, but you will feel very calm and at ease. Nitrous oxide is very safe and the effects wear off within minutes of the end of the treatment. To learn more about how nitrous oxide can make your dental visit more pleasant, please call us today! Dr. Conner and his dental team are eager to care for you.
- + TMJ Treatment
Dr. John Conner, our experienced dentist, provides night guards to treat TMJ (temporomandibular joint) dysfunction. TMJ dysfunction, also known as TMD, may be caused by misalignment in the jaw joint, trauma in the neck, head, or jaw, grinding and clenching of the teeth, stress, or arthritis in the jaw joint. You may suffer from TMD if you experience one or more of the following symptoms:
-Clicking, popping, or grinding sounds in the jaw joint when you open and close your mouth
-A locked jaw
-Ringing in the ears
A night guard can relieve the symptoms of TMJ dysfunction by preventing teeth grinding and clenching and by helping the jaw remain in the correct position. Dr. Conner will ensure that your night guard fits comfortably so you can get a good night’s sleep. For more information on TMJ treatment and night guards, we invite you to contact our Salt Lake City, Utah dental office.
- + Tooth Extractions
Your skilled dentist may recommend tooth extraction if:
-A tooth is severely decayed or damaged
-There is not enough room for all of the teeth in the mouth
-Infection has destroyed a large portion of the tooth or surrounding bone
Dr. Conner and his dental team will ensure that your tooth extraction procedure is painless and comfortable. Tooth extraction can improve your oral health by preventing the spread of infection to other areas of the mouth. We welcome you to call or visit our dental office in Salt Lake City, Utah today to learn more about tooth extraction and our tooth replacement options.
- + White Fillings
White fillings are created from composite resin, a durable, tooth-colored material. Your Salt Lake City dentist, Dr. John Conner, may recommend a white filling to repair a decayed or damaged tooth. Dr. Conner will remove the damaged portion of the tooth, fill in the tooth using composite resin, and shape the filling to ensure that it fits your mouth comfortably and beautifully. Composite resin bonds with the natural tooth, strengthening it and helping to prevent future tooth decay. To learn more about the advantages of composite resin and white dental fillings, we invite you to call or visit us soon!
- + Oral Cancer Screening
We are pleased to utilize the OralID™ oral cancer screening device at our dental office. The OralID device uses fluorescence technology to help our experienced dentist, Dr. Conner, identify oral abnormalities. The OralID oral cancer screening is simple and fast. If needed, Dr. Conner can further examine abnormal areas or can refer you to a specialist for further testing and treatment. The earlier we recognize the signs of oral cancer, the more effectively it can be treated. Oral cancer screenings using the OralID device are essential because oral cancer often involves few physical symptoms. We invite you to call or visit our dental office in Salt Lake City, Utah today to learn more about oral cancer screenings and the OralID device.
