Dream about Teeth & Teeth dreams meaningAnother rationalization for these falling teeth dreams may be rooted in your fear of being embarrassed or making a fool of yourself in some situation. These dreams are an over-exaggeration of your worries and anxieties. Perhaps you feel that you are unprepared for the task at hand. However, you will find that your worries are unfounded in most cases. Sometimes what plays out in your mind is far worse than what is reality.
Teeth are used to bite, tear, chew and gnaw. In this regard, teeth symbolize 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 may be an indication that you need to be more assertive and believe in the importance of what you have to say.
Traditionally, it was thought that dreaming that you did not have teeth, represent malnutrition or poor diet. This notion may still be applicable to some dreamers.
A scriptural interpretation for bad or falling teeth indicates 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.
Many cultures, including the Hispanic and Greek cultures, believe that when you dream about loose, rotten, falling, or missing teeth, then 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 you 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.

Dreams of falling or crumbling teeth are the most common dreams that Dream Moods receives. The typical dream scenarios include having your teeth crumble in your hands, fall out one by one with just a light tap, grow crooked or start to rot. Such dreams are not only horrifying and shocking, but they often leave you with a lasting image throughout the day. So what does it mean?
Falling teeth relates to vanity:One theory is that dreams about your teeth reflect your anxieties about your appearance and how others perceive you. Your teeth help to convey an image of attractiveness and play an important role in the game of flirtation, whether it is flashing those pearly whites, kissing or necking. Thus, such dreams may stem from a fear of rejection, feeling unattractive, feeling sexually undesirable or from growing older. To support this notion, a dream research found that women in menopause reported a higher frequency of dreams about their teeth. So there seems to be a correlation with getting older and having more teeth dreams.Teeth are an important feature to your attractiveness and how you are presented to others. Caring about how you look is a natural concern.
Falling teeth relates to communication:When your teeth are missing, you may also have a harder time talking or annunciating your words. Thus your falling teeth dream may be highlighting some communication issue. You are not speaking up about something or you feel prevented from doing so. Perhaps you are having difficulties expressing yourself or getting your point across.
Falling teeth relates to embarrassment:Dreaming that your teeth are falling out or rotting may refer to your fears of being embarrassed or making a fool of yourself in some situation. Perhaps you feel unprepared for the task at hand and are afraid of getting ridiculed. These dreams are often an over-exaggeration of your worries and anxieties.

1. TRANSITIONWaking up from a dream about teeth falling out leaves a horrible feeling in the mouth for most people, and yet it is one of the most common recurring dreams.
This type of dream can actually represent a transition period taking place in your life. The horrible feeling that you get in the dream when you lose your teeth can represent the anxiety or uncertainty that may be experienced in times of change.
It is no surprise then that teeth falling out dreams are commonly experienced by children as they move into adulthood, or by women as they go through menopause.
2. INSECURITYA dream about teeth falling out can also represent feeling insecure about some part of yourself or your life. You may have concerns about self-image or how you are being perceived or treated by others.
When we are children people often make fun of how we look when we lose our teeth and so we have this deep subconscious memory of feeling mistreated, being made fun of or not being taken seriously because of how we look when we lose our teeth. The anxiety you feel in the dream about having missing teeth can therefore symbolize your concerns over self-worth, self-image, or how you are being treated by others.
When you have this type of dream you will often find that it coincides with a recent situation in your life where you feel that you haven’t been taken seriously, you’ve been made fun of or are not being treated as an equal.worrying dream about teeth falling out

…and more updatingDream about Teeth & Teeth dreams meaningDreams about teeth falling out are a common theme at bedtime. If you or a loved one has been covering this ground at night, you may have questions about what it all might mean. As part of a Huffington Post series on dreams and their meanings, we spoke to Richard Nicoletti, J.D., a Jungian psychotherapist trained at the Jung Institute in Boston, to get expert advice about the meanings of your or your loved one’s dreams about teeth falling out. Note: While dream analysis is highly subjective, this post might provide some insight into why this dream occurred or is recurring.
What do dreams about teeth falling out mean?The meaning of dreams about teeth falling out depends on several factors, including whether they’re your teeth or someone else’s. “It could mean that the dreamer’s ability to assess emotional experiences was being interfered with,” says Nicoletti. “When the teeth fall out, one’s survival is challenged, one’s ability to eat, so it could mean disease. If it’s a person other than the dreamer whose teeth are falling out, the dreamer may have an issue with the person, who may be a superior at work, for example. The dream may indicate that the fear of the person in waking life is overstated.”
What can I learn about myself from dreaming about teeth falling out?When you wake up from a dream about teeth falling out, ask yourself some questions, says Nicoletti: “What am I failing to really dig into? Are there possible issues with a spouse, children or work that I am refusing to ‘bite into’?”
Are there any tricks to avoiding or inducing dreams about teeth falling out?“Live freely,” says Nicoletti. “Psychoanalysis is the process of trying to understand one’s life issues. If one has an attitude that one is looking to resolve, don’t avoid the issue. Or, one may be overzealous about resolving issues in waking life, in which case the dream may be saying, ‘Back off.'”
Beyond analysis, what cultural symbolism can be found in dreams about teeth falling out?The cultural symbolism is likely related to the dreamer’s culture, says Nicoletti. “In some societies, aging may be accepted as natural and to be expected. Losing teeth in connection with aging would not be an issue.” For Westerners, it’s a different story. “In the West, aging is feared and repressed as much as possible,” he says. “Losing teeth in the West, therefore, would be a graphic illustration of a metaphorical death sentence or reminder of death.”
Who tends to have dreams about teeth falling out most frequently?“It’s just as likely for young people as old people to have dreams about teeth falling out,” says Nicoletti. “Such dreams run fully across the spectrum.”
What details might make dreaming about teeth falling out more significant?It’s not just about the teeth, sometimes it’s about the kind of teeth. “If it’s a gold tooth that falls out, that would hold significant value,” says Nicoletti. “In Jungian terms, gold is symbolic of one’s wholeness. Of the Self — capital S. That includes one’s personal shadow, that side of one’s self that is the opposite of one’s persona, of one’s conscious attitude. So a gold tooth falling out might be some reflection that one’s life path was being detoured a reflection of one not fulfilling one’s destiny, in the sense that a person is meant to fulfill one’s capability.”
