Dental visits free of anxiety and pain

For many years I relied on nitrous oxide (also known as “laughing gas”) whenever I had dental work done. This drug doesn’t relieve pain but is supposed to alleviate anxiety, which I experienced whenever going to the dentist.   

A few years ago, I had an appointment to have a filling repaired. The night before the appointment, I realized that using this drug didn’t conform with my practice of Christian Science, which teaches that God alone is all-powerful. I saw that it was fear that needed to be eliminated from thought through an understanding of God and my relation to Him, and that when there was no more fear, there would be no pain as a result of the procedure.
