Healing of a gum abscess

In 1998 I had a gum abscess that was continually irritating me. The swelling and discharge had been going on for some time, and when I asked my dentist about it, he gave me a detailed description of a “leak,” or “deep decay,” shared its medical name, and said the only solution was a root canal and a crown. He was very concerned and wanted to show me pictures of the abscess to convince me of the seriousness of it, but I respectfully declined to look at any pictures of this condition. 

I was actually amazed at my deep conviction that I should resist this diagnosis and treatment recommendation. I was absolutely sure the abscess could be healed in Christian Science, and I left the dentist’s office with a decision to get serious about treating the abscess metaphysically. As soon as I got home, I called a Christian Science practitioner for prayerful treatment.
