Bone regenerates

Over a decade ago my husband bit into an apple, dislodging one of his front teeth. A visit to the dentist revealed that the tooth could not be saved. There was now an unsightly gap in his megawatt smile.

An X-ray showed that the bone that had held the tooth no longer existed, which was why the tooth had given way. That meant a dental implant was not possible. The dentist suggested braces to realign the teeth, but he warned that the teeth on either side of the gap could not be pulled completely together because of the missing bone at the base; the gap could at most be minimized. He told my husband that he would always have a gap, though he wasn’t sure how large.

My husband is not a student of Christian Science, but when he mentioned this prognosis, my thought went straight to God. I knew that there was nothing missing in God and therefore nothing missing in His creation, man. God’s children have no gaps, holes, vacuums, or lack of any sort.
