Dr. Charles Barotz has been a pioneer in enhancing smiles with artistic dentistry since 1980. A graduate of Georgetown University School of Dentistry, he has dedicated his life to provide you with the best that dentistry has to offer.

Dr. Charles Barotz treats even advanced cases of gum disease without surgery and minimal pain.

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 traditionally recommended treatments would be painful and invasive. 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 to intermediate cases of gum disease, Dr. Barotz recommends conventional treatment methods, including cleaning & scaling, and treatment with dental antibiotics. Unlike most dentists, however, Dr. Barotz is also equipped to handle 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.

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. The body then heals naturally so that the gum pockets improve and the teeth become more stable.

The Millennium laser is a state-of-the-art tool that has saved thousands of teeth and helped countless patients bring themselves back to a more healthy state.

Only 1% of U.S. dentists, including Dr. Barotz, are certified to perform Laser Gum Therapy for treating gum disease. 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.

Perhaps most importantly, LANAP Laser Therapy is less painful and heals faster than traditional gum surgery, and yields miraculous results in many cases.
