Dream interpretation of broken teeth: Questioning reliability & trustworthiness

A broken tooth or breaking teeth in dreams denote that something is unreliable in your life. The dream could point to you or other people. Broken teeth could represent doubts or concerns over the reliability of your health, aging of your body, or physical appearance.

Become your own dream interpreter

Accurate dream interpretation does not require you a become a clairvoyant or psychic who can do readings to predict the future, nor an astrologer who knows how to read horoscopes and make forecasts based on your zodiac sign.

Serious dream work compels you to engage your intellect, imagination, and intuition together. It engages both sides of your brain by combining activities associated with the analytical left hemisphere and the intuitive and holistic right hemisphere. Dream interpretation is both intuitive and intellectual, and as such, it can be part of a rich process of personal development.

Unlike the predictions found in horoscopes or psychic readings, dream interpretation relies on your active participation. When you interpret your dreams, put yourself in the shoes of the dream interpreter who understands the symbols and meanings of your dreams the best.

This dream symbol could also point to things you have said that may or may not be really trustworthy. A broken tooth or teeth would symbolize guilt you feel about a broken promise or concerns over promises you or others cannot depend on.

A broken tooth, dream symbol for pain and loss

Broken teeth symbolize pain over losing something that is important to you. You may be currently experiencing changes in your life, transitioning from one place or job to another, ending a relationship or working on modifying your habits.

Dreaming about teeth breaking is a common symbol for concerns over change and loss. Your dream could point to the fear of getting hurt emotionally and perhaps physically as well by an upcoming situation or by someone.

When dreaming about broken teeth means costly compromises

A dream about teeth breaking can be interpreted as a warning about the cost of a decision or action. You may have or are about to make a choice that compromises with your real needs or desires. Broken teeth may represent the emotional pain that comes with such a choice.

A costly compromise is like losing a part of you or denying important needs. Through an image related to the body, a broken tooth or teeth, your dream is most likely pointing to the emotional pain that your decision triggered.

Broken teeth in dreams: An invitation to look at your life direction

A meaning of a dream about teeth breaking could be that you are “breaking” yourself and your sense of balance in order to satisfy others or goals that do not serve you well in the end. Dreaming about broken teeth could be a warning about a course of action you have chosen and its potential drawbacks.

A broken teeth dream is an invitation to look at the path you have chosen. Check if you are losing sight of yourself and your true needs by going after some ideals that may not align with who you truly are or by compromising too much to fit with other people’s expectations.

  • john

    I had a dream last night where all of my front teeth were broken. I don’t know the cause though but this ain’t the first time I’m having such dream. I’ve already had it several times but ignored it. I’m starting to get worried. I’m a boy of 22 years of age

  • Gertjie

    I had a dream where I was out with friends and my tooth started to pain a lot so I started te clench on it and after a while I felt a crack and my tooth was broken I immediately went to someone and asked for the nearest bathroom which they replied was miles away. After walking a few meters I found a bathroom that the person didnt know about where I went and inspected the tooth and soon found out that 2 of my teeth are broken and the more I look at the others the more would break or fall out bleeding intensly. People would come in and look at the blood and continue on while my hands are full of blood an pieces of teeth.

    Last night I had a dream that my boyfriend and our kids were just driving around when suddenly my tooth cracked in half. I reached up and it wiggled for a minute and then it just fell out. And when I was like oh my god my tooth, my boyfriend told me it was my problem, not his. That’s about all I can remember

  • Brittany

    I have repeatedly had this dream where I am just clenching my teeth so hard to the point that my teeth shatter. What does this dream mean? I am very curious to know.

    • Vicki

      This is the exact dream I have!!

      • Nick

        I have this dream too sometimes, usually when I’ve been really stressed lately. Had it again this morning actually after a bad day yesterday.

  • Brittney

    I have recently dreamed of my boyfriends tooth breaking while we were hanging out with friends. In the dream, after he claims that his tooth hurt after taking a bite of something, I have to force him to leave so we can go to the hospital. from then on it is an uphill battle of me telling him to show me, not touch it, and to move.

    In my ‘real’ life, my boyfriend an I have been apart for the last 6 months. Our plan was to move together (he gets a job in WA and I stay at a friends place in MT and look for a job in WA). So we both started paying for an apartment in WA.

    2 months later, he then claims the hates his job and is looking to live anywhere (WA,OR,AZ,AL..) I on the other hand fall in love with my job in MT.

    2 months more months, he quits his job without telling me causing huge strain and stress on me. This also caused a trust issue. I was already toying with the idea of maybe breaking up.

    2 more months, we are still together, I am moving out of my friends place and getting my own apartment (FINALLY). Our lease is up in WA. My boyfriend has a job offer and a few more interviews. I have now moved all of my stuff back to MT and am ready to live in my own place. Still thinking about the idea of breaking up, but also not 100% sure about it like other people assume I am. I am afraid to end the relationship because I don’t want him, his family, and our friends to be upset/resent me.

    What does dreaming about HIS tooth breaking and not listening to me mean?

  • Sirish

    I always get a dream that all my upper teeth fall off and even lower one. It is as if all my teeth are very weak and shakes and then falls off.
    What does this imply?

    I have always had recurring nightmares, but the main event in them all is people trying to chase after me, or hunt me.

    But last night I had a nightmare I have never had before. All I can remember from the beginning is that I was drunk, though I don’t remember drinking in it. I remember trying to get up the stairs fast so that my mom wouldn’t notice how drunk I was (she was about to come up behind me) but no matter how hard I tried, I kept stumbling, couldnt stay straight, and my legs were like lead. It felt like forever.

    I finally got into my room (my room at home, as I am home for Christmas break) and I remember being sitting up in my bed, towards the very end, leaning forward, and the next thing I knew I had excruciating pain in my mouth. I could almost feel it in my sleep. It was unbearable and I couldnt even close my lips over my teeth.
    I finally looked in the mirror, and 3-4 of my teeth had the top right corner (when looking in a mirror) chipped off, and two of them were cracked at the bottom with my gums spilling through. I remember thinking to myself during the dream, “This can not be real, this has to be a dream.”
    Then at one point, I think it was still in the dream, I dreamt that I woke up and realized that I was right, that my teeth were fine. But then I woke up again and I was back in the dream with the pain of my cracked teeth again, like I was being teased.

    I quickly woke up again this morning and realized I was right, that my teeth were fine. But it felt so real… what does this mean…

    • Richard

      Well this is my exact case, I thought it was so real, it didn’t seem like a dream at all, but I still said that I needed to wake up 👆

      I wanna know just what is going on with me

  • Re

    I have this reoccurring dream where my lower front teeth is loose and I’m trying hard to take it off .And after I do I feel a sense of relax and at the same time worried about not having a teeth.And when I wake up from the dream I feel so relived that it was just a dream and I still have my teeth .
    This time I saw the same dream and now after I wake up my gum is feeling so sensitive .i am having the same type of feeling in my gum as I had in dream .its so annoying .

    • Anubhav

      i’ve been having the same dreams lately.  My lower teeth are loose and gradually they fall out. I have been grinding my teeth during sleeping for a long time now so i thought that the two things might be connected. But then i realised the teeth falling out is a very recent thing. I think in my last dream, i even realised i was in a dream because this(the teeth dreams) has been happening a lot, so i wasn’t that concerned. I might use that as a trigger to change such dreams into lucid ones now.

    last night i had a dream that my two teeth broke one after another and my sister-in-law came and gave me ice water i rinsed my mouth multiple times that’s all
    this is the first time i had this type of dream

    • Gerri

      Well-loved. I’ll play devil’s advocate here and say it really depends.  It’s not her business to “play mama”.  It’s HIS responsibility to take care of his kis3d82&0;.regar#leds of the age of his girlfriend.  I was with a wonderful man, who had a 4 year old daughter, for 3 years when I was 20. We broke up for reasons other than his daughter. We’re still good friends to this day, his daughter will be 14 next month. I knew what my place was in my relationship. I cared about his daughter, but she wasn’t my business. If we had gotten married, that would’ve been a different story.
