No need for a filling

I was at the dentist’s office for a checkup. Not all of my visits have gone smoothly. I’ve had several cavities and fillings before, but this time I felt prepared. I had flossed and brushed my teeth twice daily since my last visit.

After my dentist examined me, though, she told me I had a cavity that needed to be filled. I was both dumbfounded and deflated. I thought I had done everything right.

When the dentist went to talk to my mom, I had some time to think. At that moment I realized that while everything I was doing to protect my teeth was well-intentioned, there was one thing I hadn’t been doing: I hadn’t been thinking spiritually. Maybe that sounds a little strange, but I’ve had lots of other healings by praying and getting a more spiritual view of myself or of a situation. But before now, it had never crossed my mind to take this same approach with my teeth.
