Gum disease is the #1 cause of tooth loss in adults, yet many people avoid treatment for gum disease because they are fearful that the procedures would be invasive or painful. For mild cases of gum disease, Denver dentist Dr. Charles Barotz offers gentle cleaning and scaling to remove the bacteria causing the disease. Advanced cases are treated using LANAP laser gum therapy. Dr. Barotz was the first dentist in the city of Denver to be fully certified to offer comfortable LANAP laser treatment instead of conventional cut-and-stitch surgery.
For mild or intermediate cases of gum disease, Dr. Barotz recommends conventional treatment methods, including cleaning and scaling, and treatment with dental antibiotics. Unlike most dentists, however, Dr. Barotz is also equipped to handle even severe cases of gum disease without resorting to painful gum surgery.

What is gum disease?
Periodontal disease is an infection of the gum and bone which support the teeth. Left untreated, it can cause the bone to dissolve, which leads to loose teeth and ultimately the loss of teeth. Periodontal disease is the number one cause for adult tooth loss; over 75 million Americans over the age of 35 suffer from gum disease. Gum disease is more common than heart disease, stroke, cancer and Alzheimer’s combined and has been proven to increase the risk for developing many other diseases.
Heart Disease can be increased by 150%
Chances of stroke can increase by 300%
The risk of having a premature birth or delivering a low birth weight baby can be increased by 700%
The increased risk of respiratory infection can be increased by 500%
Gum disease occurs because bacteria accumulate on the teeth and forms dental plaque. If the plaque is not removed thoroughly, it will attach to the root surface inside the gum and produce a pocket, causing constant irritation to the adjacent gum. The gum becomes swollen, will appear slightly to moderately red, and can result in frequent bleeding. When the gums reach this stage, it is called gingivitis.
If gingivitis is not controlled, the bone will begin to dissolve in order to avoid bacteria. Once the bone begins to dissolve, we call this state of gum disease periodontitis. Eventually, the teeth become loose and may abscess or be lost.
Laser Gum Treatment
LANAP™ (Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure) is an advanced technique used by Dr. Barotz to treat gum disease and save teeth that were previously considered hopeless. A laser light is used to gently remove harmful bacteria and diseased tissue from the gum pocket. This allows the body to heal naturally so that the gum pockets improve and the teeth become more stable.
The laser is a wonderful tool that will help many patients bring themselves to a more
Only 1% of U.S. dentists, including Dr. Barotz, are certified to perform this Laser Gum Therapy. LANAP is the only laser gum treatment protocol that is patented and FDA approved for new attachment of gum and bone tissue around teeth.
Most laser systems have not undergone clinical studies evaluating their performance. LANAP is the only laser system that has treatment results confirmed and verified by clinical and laboratory studies.
And, perhaps most importantly, LANAP is less painful and heals faster than traditional gum surgery, and gives miraculous results in many situations.
Benefits of LANAP vs. traditional gum surgery
A less traumatic yet highly effective alternative to cut and sew gum surgery.
No cutting of the gum tissue with a scalpel and no stitches means easy recovery with minimal bleeding and minimal pain.
Preserves gum tissue instead of cutting it away.
Reduces root exposure and sensitivity.
