Gary D. Behrend DDS

Our primary goal as health care professionals is to provide all patients referred to our office with the most compassionate and best endodontic care available.  This begins the moment the patient calls or walks into the office and ends when the patient no longer requires our services.  We seek to raise the patients awareness about endodontic care and develop a satisfied patient who would want to come back for additional endodontic therapy and refer other patients to our office. 

We hope that the information provided here answers many of your questions about endodontic treatment. If you would like additional information, please don’t hesitate to contact us at 919-866-1989.

Root Canal Treatment

A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures with well over 14 million performed every year. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need for dental implants or bridges. For more information on root canal treatment at our office, please visit our root canal page.

Root Canal Retreatment

With the appropriate care, your teeth that have had endodontic treatment will last as long as other natural teeth. Yet, a tooth that has received treatment may fail to heal or pain may continue to exist. Sometimes, the pain may occur months or years after treatment. If so, Endodontic Retreatment may be needed. For more information, please visit our root canal retreatment page.
