Sometimes we are so busy worrying about our teeth that we forget to take care of our gums.  There are a number of reasons why you should put some effort into taking care of your gums – not least because treatment can be costly and will take a long time.


If you allow the gum tissue to recede you may notice a few things including:

  • The tooth root becomes exposed and will then be hypersensitive, making it difficult to tolerate hot or cold temperatures.
  • It may be harder for you to maintain your oral hygiene routine.
  • You may notice that you have a build-up of plaque, more inflammation of the gums and you may notice that you are suffering from tooth decay.
  • When consulting a dentists, Worthing patients may be surprised to hear just how long and expensive treatment for this is.


Some people are unfortunate enough to have a lack of gum tissue and this can be diagnosed by the dentist.  Worthing patients need to be aware of this so that any problems can be addressed.  The gum tissue actually fits quite tightly around the teeth but if there is a lack of it then you may notice issues such as:

  • Gum inflammation
  • Loss of gum and bone
  • Further costly treatment


Not looking after your gums is like trying to grow plants in the garden with no soil.  They are the anchor for your teeth and they need to be in good condition so that your teeth can also be kept in good condition.



A Guide to Choosing the Perfect Wedding Ring

Published by:


With so many other things on your mind when planning a wedding, it can be stressful looking for the perfect wedding rings. Knowing it will stay with you for the rest of your life can be overwhelming and make the decision even harder, especially as there are so many choices available to choose from. Here are some important tips to keep in mind when choosing your perfect wedding ring…

  • Match the metal of the ring to your engagement ring metal. They should be the same metal as they will sit together on the same finger so they should match. Platinum engagement rings will look amazing next to 18 carat white gold wedding rings, but over time they can end up looking slightly different.
  • Choose something similar with your engagement ring. They don’t have to match exactly, but something in common with the rings always looks nice such as a similar pattern or the same shape of the stones.
  • Your wedding ring should not be bigger or overpowering to the engagement ring. The bands should be a similar width but the wedding ring should be slightly plainer so the engagement ring is the attention grabbing one.
  • The ring does not have to match your hubby’s. They should be a reflection of your individuality and show your personal styles. You can get them in similar designs or metals if you would prefer.
  • If you get an eternity ring with stones all the way around remember it will be harder to adjust the size in the future.
