PAINLESS EXTRACTION OF TEETH
My husband, having been healed through Christian Science and knowing something of its grand truth myself, I determined to try it in this case. Accordingly I called on a Christian Scientist for treatment.
After receiving a treatment I went to the dentist's entirely free from any dread or fear. I told him what I wished done. He immediately began preparing to give me chloroform. I told him I should take nothing as I had been to a Christian Scientist. He replied, "I shall nearly kill you, woman." I told him I would risk being killed and asked him to begin at once as it was getting late in the afternoon, and I lived out of the city.
He examined the teeth and again tried to persuade me to take something. When he found I would not he extracted eleven teeth, prepared two for filling and scraped and cleaned the under set.
That the operation was painless was a fact that puzzled him very much, and one that he has since told to a great many people. When his work was finished he wanted to give me a liquid to rinse the mouth with to prevent soreness, but of course I refused it.
I spent the remainder of the afternoon, a raw cold March day shopping and after reaching home, went out in the evening, suffering no inconvenience from sore mouth or face.
My mouth healed rapidly and in a short time I had my new teeth, which I have worn two years without any trouble with either mouth or teeth during the time.
Since then my husband and I have studied Christian Science, and know that all things are possible in Truth.
