This sounds weird, but it has happened. I had this really awful nightmare in which my teeth were all falling out. It was really vivid and actually really terrifying. As soon as I woke up I touched all my teeth, while I was still in bed. I think I had more than one teeth related nightmare too.

And recently I had a skin related nightmare. You know when you squeeze a pimple that's coming out, that white icky stuff comes out? Well in this dream I was squeezing this pimple and the white gunk was just coming and coming, I didn't know where it was all coming from. It was this ridiculous amount. This was my first skin related nightmare. I must have been thinking about pimples when I was falling asleep or something.

Here is an interpretation of the teeth dream:


Quote:
Dreams that your teeth are falling out are the most common dreams we here at Dream Moods receive. Common dream scenarios include having your teeth crumbling in your hands or your teeth falling out one by one with just a light tap.?Such dreams are not only horrifying and shocking, but often leaves the dreamer with a lasting image of the dream. So what does it mean?

One theory is that dreams about your teeth reflect your anxiety about your appearance and how others perceive you. Sadly, we live in a world where good looks are valued highly and your teeth play an important role in conveying that image. Teeth are used in the game of flirtations, whether it be a dazzling and gleaming smile or affectionate necking. These dreams may stem from a fear of your sexual impotence or the consequences of getting old. Teeth are an important feature of our attractiveness and presentation to others. Everybody worries about how they appear to others. Caring about our appearance is natural and healthy.?

Another rationalization for these falling teeth dream may be rooted in your fear of being embarrassed or making a fool of yourself in some specific situation. These dreams are an over-exaggeration of your worries and anxiety.?

Teeth are used to bite, tear, chew and gnaw. In this regard, teeth represent power. And the loss of teeth in your dream may be from a sense of powerlessness. Are you lacking power in some current situation? Perhaps you are having difficulties expressing yourself or getting your point across. You feel frustrated when your voice is not being heard. You may be experiencing feelings of inferiority and a lack of self-confidence in some situation or relationship in your life. This dream is an indication that you need to be more assertive and believe in the value of your own opinion.

In the latest research, it has been shown that women in menopause have frequent dreams about teeth. This may be related to getting older and/or feeling unattractive and less feminine.

Traditionally, it was thought that dreaming that you did not have teeth, represent malnutrition which may be applicable to some dreamers.

Other Perspectives

A scriptural interpretation for bad or falling teeth indicate that you are putting your faith, trust, and beliefs in what man thinks rather than in the word of God. The bible says that God speaks once, yea twice in a dream or a vision in order to hide pride from us, to keep us back from the pit, to open our ears (spiritually) and to instruct and correct us.

In the Greek culture, when you dream about loose, rotten, or missing teeth, it indicates that a family member or close friend is very sick or even near death.

According to the Chinese, there is a saying that your teeth will fall out if your are telling lies.?

It has also been said that if you dream of your teeth falling out, then it symbolizes money. This is based on the old tooth fairy story. If you lose a tooth and leave it under the pillow, a tooth fairy would bring you money.?

What an ambiguous interpretation. Geesh. I've also had the no teeth/teeth falling out dream. I seriously panic in my dreams and I wake up feeling SO much anxiety and fear. Scary. Haven't had one in a while *knock on wood*

This is hilarious - I suffer from the "Teeth Dream" quite often - yes I do worry about my appearance but also because all my top teeth are capped and even when I'm awake I worry about them falling out!

Anyway, I'm living my nightmares at the moment because I developed an abscess underneath two of my caps and had to have them sawn out last week. I now have a mouthful of stitches and have to wear a denture on top of them which hurts like hell. I am in misery. Eventually, I'm getting implants but it's going to be a long process. More "Teeth Dreams" ahead for me, I'm afraid. Sad

Ouch! Sad I hope you'll be ok soon!

I haven't even had my wisdom teeth removed (and I have 2 of them). I have a really great dentist that doesn't want to do anything unnecessary. At one point one of my wisdom teeth were giving me trouble and she just prescribed me a rinse and a course of antibiotics for them. Now I just make sure to floss enough regularly and I haven't had trouble with the wisdom teeth since.

I had a teeth dream about my father once. His teeth were falling out and all this black stuff just came oozing out, like ash.

But I don't need a dream interpretation to tell me what it meant LOL. He is a very heavy smoker and I want him to quit.

At some point I though one of my teeth was wobbly and I was terrified that it was going to fall out.

I was a clencher and I actually cracked molars. I now wear a mouthguard. It was covered by insurance.

Just a suggestion for those that grind or clench. This can also lead to headaches.

I too grind my teeth and sometimes it wakes me up. My dentist has said for years that he can tell I grind my teeth, due to the fact that my teeth are worn. NOT all insurances cover the guard though. My insurance DOES not cover it and I have a great insurance plan. The insurance company does not see this as something they should cover. My dentist has wrote it up to the insurance company a couple different ways and they still deny. Even when he told them that it is causing severe tooth ware that will cause long term damage. No insurance coverage means $485 out of my pocket. Not something I can afford. Sad

I have had so many dreams or should I say nightmares of my teeth falling out. But the one I seem to have frequently now is going out in public or at my job and I have my frownie on. People don't say anything when I am talking to them but I just peel it right off.

I have a few dreams concerning tooth lose. In one particular dream I was spitting my teeth out one by one. I woke in a sweat. At the time my mother was dying. Another time I had such a dream my husband was layed off his job. I was told this type dream centered around loss. In my case true.

Ditto, I have the reoccuring teeth nighmare. My dentist told me I have Bruxism (clenching teeth) so I had him make me a mouthguard. Still have the teeth dreams every so often though.
