As a child of eight, I fell on some pavement and broke off a permanent front tooth. My mother's reaction to the situation was one of great calm. She pushed my tooth back to its original position, calmed my fears, and then contacted a Christian Science practitioner.

Over a period of a few months the tooth became dark in color, although it did become firm again in its proper place. At a routine appointment to have my teeth cleaned, the dentist took an X-ray of this tooth. His diagnosis was that the root was dead and root canal treatment should take place within six months. My mother thanked him for his concern, but said she would care for it through Christian Science treatment.
