Tooth trouble gone

One day I woke up and felt pain in one of my teeth and swelling on the side of my face. Immediately I prayed as I had been taught in Christian Science, knowing that I am not a material being made up of blood and bones, who could get sick and swollen, but that I am spiritual and perfect, created and maintained by God. 

I knew from experience that I could be healed through prayer, or Christian Science treatment, alone. However, at one point I got discouraged and was tempted to see a dentist about the problem. Yet even then I knew that a dentist would see only a material picture, not seeing my perfect spiritual selfhood. So even though the pain remained, I continued to pray.
