PRAYER IN A DENTAL EMERGENCY

While I was eating one day, part of my tooth broke off. This made chewing difficult. It seemed best to have the rest of the tooth removed. I visited a dentist, and she asked me to return in two days to have the tooth extracted. In the meantime, she gave me a prescription for antibiotics, which she said I would need to begin taking immediately for a period of five days to aid in the extraction and recovery process.

I've always relied on prayer for healing and the prevention of infection, and I chose not to take the medicines. Feeling I needed to be honest with the dentist, I mentioned this to her. Even so, I told her I would return to have the extraction done. She replied that she was very concerned about the aftereffects I would experience without the medication, and about how my gums would heal.
