Simple interpretation techniques

  3. Why would you mind if you would… Here, fill in the blank with the scenario of your teeth dream; for instance, a dream where you lose your teeth, break a tooth, etc.

1. How do you feel in the dream?

Ask yourself how you feel in the dream. Pay special attention to your experience or feelings, especially when something happened to your teeth.

2. How does the feeling in the dream relate to your current life?

Are there any connections between these feelings and impressions or feelings you may have in your everyday life?

dream interpretation tipDream Interpretation Tip: Here’s a key point in interpreting dreams: Strong dream symbols tend to show up when an event or a situation in the dreamer’s life triggers intense emotions. Check what’s happening in your life right now that may be related how you felt in the dream.

More specifically, look for moments where things are shifting or changing dramatically in your life; making compromises that are not completely satisfying for you; facing choices that are hard to bear or make; expressing yourself with assertiveness or lack thereof.

3. What do the dream symbols mean to you personally?

One of the most important questions to dig out the deeper meaning of your dream is: Why would you mind if your teeth would fall out like they do in the dream?

Your answer will point you to another layer of interpretation. For instance, your dream could be related to the fear of aging, not looking as good as you would wish or stem from a feeling of powerless in face of change or losing something important to you.

Other interpretations may lead you to the idea of biting life more fully or getting more of the nourishment you need to enjoy life.

Dream interpretation theories: Why do we dream about teeth?

According to traditional psychology, an explanation for dreams about teeth, especially dreams where you see you teeth fall out or you lose a tooth is linked to highly charged emotions in your waking life.

Most often dreams about teeth are disturbing and could even be a horrifying nightmare for the dreamer. The emotional quality of the dream scenario usually corresponds to emotions the dreamer is experiencing in her waking life.

The reason this emotional content appears in the dream though teeth imagery is because the dreamer has probably not fully acknowledged these emotions or repressed them because they were too frightening or painful to deal with in the moment. As a result, this traumatic or difficult experience and its emotional charge appear in dreams disguised in images and symbols.

For instance, teeth being pulled out or falling out remind us of the painful nature of these experiences or situations. In the symbolic language of dreams, emotions are represented indirectly through images and offer meaning for the curious dreamer who’s willing to understand their deeper meaning.

Literal and symbolic interpretation of dream symbols

In the field of dream interpretation, teeth symbols can have multiple meanings. Psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud was one of the first modern dream analysts to focus on the distinction of the literal content of a dream, i.e., the matter-of-fact content featured in dream images, from the latent content that has a more symbolic meaning and represents a hidden unconscious meaning.

Teeth dreams emphasize a specific part of the body, the teeth, but also the mouth and possibly the face. Several interpretations are possible:

  • The most literal interpretation points to concerns relating to your body, health, or physical appearance you may have consciously or unconsciously in your waking life.
  • A more symbolic interpretation of the latent content of the dream consists in seeing body images as a representation of the way you see yourself and lead your life, as well as the feelings and emotions relating to these topics.

    I painlessly take a large tooth from my mouth and feeling how easy it was to do.  During my dream I felt happy and unbothered about anything as I remember. Quite tranquil actually.

        Moi aussi j’ai été gay durant un moment sur FB, et les gens me regardaient d’un air bizarre. Vérification faite, c&qrauo;étsit un homonyme. Pour ne pas se faire trop de publicité, il ne mettait pas sa photo. Perso je m’en contre cognait, mais j’ai quand même mis un profil où je me déclarais lesbienne. Puis le gars a disparu, et moi aussi. Pour c’que ça sert…

  • intensive teeth falling all of them

    I didn’t know I was in a real dream when I woke up. In the dream one tooth I picked out then suddenly I felt like I had to spit and others start to fall out until the point that wholes where in my mouth and more and more teeth start coming out by the chunks. In the dream I knew that I had to go somewhere to see why this had happened. In the dream my daughters where watching as they were assisting. My oldest daughter went somewhere outside and came back with something big to put all my teeth in. In the dream the object she had felt like a gold catcher. In the dream I felt after being hysterical that I had to figure out where I was going to go get treated and what treatment I would need to fix my teeth. I had other dreams of my teeth falling out, but not to this extent. This was serious! I woke up and thought wow! I was dreaming.

  • Kathy

    I dreamt of my niece who was lying in bed and she had a piece of cotton in her mouth and I noticed that she just come from the dentist after extracting one of her front tooth.  I then asked her why she had her tooth extracted because there was nothing wrong with it.  She replied that it was discolored.
