Teeth dreams and specifically teeth falling out are among the most common dream themes.
Whether your teeth start to crumble and decay of their own accord, or whether you touch them slightly and have them feel loose in your mouth, we have all had this dream at some time or another.
However your teeth make their exit, there is always a feeling of helplessness and powerlessness that accompanies the loss of your smile.
So how do you interpret your teeth falling out in dreams?
Our teeth are such an integral part of our lives.
Not only do they allow us to eat, but they are also linked to feelings of attractiveness. How many times have you heard somebody say, “Oh she has really nice teeth” or “great smile”.
Needless to say the idea of loosing them is pretty terrifying.
Indications of what these dreams mean can be found in how you feel while you are having the dream.
If a general feeling of loss of control accompanies your dream, of feeling helpless and anxious, then this could mean that you feel helpless and not in control of a waking life situation. You could feel fearful and afraid of change. Is there a situation where you feel this way in your waking life?
If your dream is accompanied by feelings of humiliation and of being embarrassed then these dreams are an overly exaggerated way of presenting your anxiety about looking bad in a waking life scenario.
Ask yourself if there is any situation in your waking life in which you feel like you will humiliate yourself or feel embarrassed about?
Do you cover up your mouth in your dream? If so, what are you trying to hide for fear of embarrassment in waking life?
Teeth are often one of the first places that signs of aging or malnutrition are seen. Thus, teeth dreams could also relate to feelings of inadequacy in being able to nourish and support yourself. Are you taking good care of yourself and your body's needs?
Teeth dreams may also indicate anxiety and insecurities about abandonment. Do any of your close relationships leave you feeling insecure and abandoned?
