Rotten Teeth Dream

Rotten Teeth Dream

Rotten teeth in dreams are viewed in the field of dream interpretation as a presentation of something in your life or a part of yourself that you would rather ignore, but can’t. Whatever it is, it feels like it’s decaying and not pretty to look at. Dreaming of rotten teeth could point to a sticky issue that has been bothering you for a while and not dealt with completely. It could mean that you did or said something you regret or that it represents a part of you that you reject as being not acceptable.


Dream meanings of rotten teeth

The main meanings for dreams about teeth rotting or decaying are:

  • A loss in your life
  • Dealing with insatisfaction
  • Fear of dealing with lingering issues
  • A call to deal with unfinished business

Rotten teeth as representation of loss

Seeing rotten teeth is a sign of a loss in your life. The dream could point to a symbolic loss, such as during a period of change, or a real loss of something that you used to rely on or was important to you.

The rotten teeth in your dream may also represent something in your life that is slowly going away or changing. Teeth could symbolize health, physical appearance, but also your strength, sense of power.

To interpret dreams, you need to engage not only your intellect, but also your imagination and intuition. This dream dictionary is only a guide to get you started. Both sides of your brain are involved as the analytical left hemisphere and the holistic right hemisphere are solicited to reveal the true meaning of your dreams.

A dream featuring rotten or rotting teeth could also be a warning about something that is not unfolding to your advantage in your life.

Check to see if a situation, something that somebody said, or a behavior you may have are undermining you in ways that feel like demeaning, humiliating.

Rotten teeth in dreams as representation of lingering issues

Dreaming of rotten indicate that something has been bothering you lately that has been ignored because it was too difficult, painful or disgusting to look at.

Rotten teeth in dreams can been interpreted as symbols of what has been rejected out of your consciousness, but still has a strong influence on how you feel.

Positive dream interpretation of rotten teeth

A dream about rotten or decaying teeth is an invitation to resolve unfinished business. Listen to the message communicated through your dream to take care of a situation or emotions you have ignored before they poison your life or decay into something even more unpleasant.

    I just woke up from an awful dream just 3 minutes ago. I was in in warmly lighted room with a soft glow, everything looked okay. I was with my family and I noticed my ex was in the corner. Everything was themed in nature and I felt more like a humble princess. Which was unusual, so I went to go and change my clothes. Among the clothes, I saw a yellow fluffy dress like the one Belle has in Beauty and the Beast has. Then I look towards my right, and I saw a shirt / dress that was more my style. But when I went to go and put it on and go out the door so everyone can see me, I noticed that I was coughing up rotten black blood. I rushed to the restroom sink, when I coughed, 4 of my teeth fell out. Then blood started pouring. So I turned on the faucet, and more teeth started falling out into my hands. I tried to rinse my mouth as quickly as I could, and screamed for my mom to come. My family saw the mountain of teeth in my palms, and they didn’t know what to do. I was scared. As I kept rinsing my mouth, the water turned grey and my mouth tasted awful as I continued to cough out rotten bloody teeth. It was an awful experience and I’ve never had a dream that bad before. That was just a few minutes ago today, too. What does it mean? 🙁 -KM.

    I had a dream…
    I was talking to someone, and I could feel my bottom teeth with my tongue; they were loose and the gums were bleeding but there was no pain; I could feel the teeth wiggling in and out of the gums. I stopped talking to prob the rest of my teeth with my tongue, only to find ALL of my teeth were loose, cracking, and breaking… detaching from bleeding gums….I touched a finger to my gums and looked down at my hands to see blood. When I looked down, all of the pieces fell out of my mouth and I could taste the blood, feel my oozing gums and what few broken shards of teeth remained.
    I woke up screaming and crying. I haven’t had a night terror this vivid in years, and I can’t stop thinking about it (To the point I’m brushing and flossing my teeth more :/ )

      I have a dream like that today!!it was horrible!!

  • Suzzane


    I just woke up from a dream and started looking for the interpretation. It was a horrible dream. I was looking into the mirror and brushing my teeth, in that i see that some of my teeth which are behind are getting stained/rotten. Also i rub the flesh above my upper front teeth and tiny blood like pieces of it start to spread over my teeth but I am not in pain because of that. A dentist passes by and asks me to see him however I realise that I do not have the money for a consultation. All this is happening while I am still looking at the mirror. My financial crisis is true however I felt I was punishing myself in the dream as I kept saying/thinking in the dream that yes yes now one more problem with reference to my teeth.

  • Anonymous and worried

    Well I just recently broke up with my boyfriend of almost 2 yrs because well is gets jelous too easily,is possessive and keeps telling me don’t do this don’t do that about going Japan too vist alone where my best friend lives with her family,no shorts for me,no swimming classes because some teachers are perverts and so on.. well we fought about this issue for many times and every time I said no he would say u can’t fulfill my simple wish. I just felt bad and stupid and after thinking about it a lot I decided to end things. Well it’s been a week and yes I do miss him but when I remember the times we fought it feels like both of us will never change. He still wants to get back and we do text eachother everyday. Sooo last night I had a dream in like 3 days and in my dream I was looking at a mirror and I could see a clean hole in my teeth on the back. So if anyone can please tell me what it means I would be very great full. Thankyou.

    Hi there

    I had this strange dream about a rotten tooth that was breaking and coming out. It’s important to point out that I have two of my teeth at the very back of my upper jaw(left side) that need to be pulled in real life as one is broken and has affected the other over time. I also have a broken and rotten tooth that needs to be pulled out, it’s the left side one of the front two teeth of my upper jaw.

    Here is my Dream:
    I saw the right-sided tooth of my front two teeth rotten, breaking and bleeding and the chunks of it are coming of with the push of my tongue. These chunks were landing in my hand. As these almost black pieces were coming off I saw blood as well.
    When I woke up there was a lot of pain in those two teeth that I have in the back left of my upper jaw(the broken one & the one next to it).
    I’m wondering if there’s a meaning to this dream or is it just my sub-conscious making this dream since my two teeth at the back were most likely giving me pain as I was sleeping. The tooth that I saw in my dream has a broken and rotten tooth next to it in real life.

    so, i had this situation a few years back where this girl during my high school years was taunting me for ‘liking her boyfriend’ and i ignored it until i graduated and lost contact with everyone since then. Though now, in the present day, a few months ago she re-entered my life taunting me again but this time with love-life and spoke to my fiancee (now ex) about me cheating and he believed. Before i say my dream i just wanted whoever will advice me/interpret my dream to know the background.
    My dream was about that girl who was taunting me, and was placed in my high school ground, she was giving me that evil smirk like i deserved what i got, but once she open her mouth she had bad rotten teeth and she looked generally dirty, once she closed her mouth she looked clean.
    what does this mean? what does rotten teeth mean? and seeing my past?

    • John

      I think this girl is who clearly wronged you is most likely a psychopath making up 1% of the population who are. Your unconscious mind has identified this showing you what’s really inside is completely rotten.

    I dreamt that I was with a coworker, my favorite person to work with. Then, I noticed that my teeth were hurting and I looked in a hand mirror and I had only 3 teeth on my bottom jaw and they were covered in this black sticky substance. I took some tweezers and removed a bit of the black stuff and it revealed a hole in one of my molars. I got annoyed because I have really good dental hygiene. I told my coworker and she assured me that it was perfectly normal and that I’d be okay.

    • Shirley

      Maybe it means u need to work on something in your past that has caused some darkness in your future.

  • Emma

    Kevin, it means you need to see a fucking psychiatrist, you sick fuck.

    • Kelly

      It was a dream chill out

    • John

      This is a dream site, talking about dreams. I don’t exactly get why you would post “sick f##k”? What do you dream about? Or is it just black like your hart?

  • Pearl

    I had a dream that I felt pain in my gum in the back bottom row(At the wisdom tooth area, also mine have not been removed).
    And when I looked in there was an extra tooth lodged into a slit on the side of my gum next to my tongue, so I spread the slit open, the whole time feeling pain from the sharp edges of the tooth inside, and as I got it out I could see the edges had some brown rott,(Also this tooth wasn’t the traditionally roundish shape it was more flat)
    but as soon as I got it out it was instant relief.(P.s all my other teeth were perfectly fine the whole time.)

    • John

      Seems very specific, you mention it just the one tooth and there’s great relief once it’s removed. Perhaps there’s someone in your life causing you much pain, a partner? It’s time to move on…

  • zayra torres

    had a dream my front tooth was gettn a hole throught it nd it was gettn all rotten…wht does it mean

  • Kevin

    I just had a dream where I walked into a room with this girl I’ve only met once crying on the bed, I got down and spooned with her to make her feel better and eventually she sucked my dick. Well I made out with this girl after I came in her mouth and we both commented on how slimy gum can be in your mouth. While at the sink to wash out the slime I peel off a layer and my two front teeth are rotting and I looked at my gums and it was battery acid like corrosion, she’s freaking out and I shake my head and wake up 15 minutes before my alarm goes off. What the fuck does it mean??

    • Kevin


    • bertybrae

    • meh

  • shane

    My dream is that my lower fangs were rotten. Both are from behind but the left one breaks in half and im running home with my tongue feeling the half.

  • Shivangi

    I had a dream that my friend who is a dentist is pulling my teeth Nd a teeth came out that was half Nd it was rotten. Not completely but it was rotten

    • Nia

      I had a similar dream, but with mine… I was in the middle of a conversation with my parents and I guess my tooth was hurting me. I then reached to the back and pulled my tooth out because it was loose and it was a whole tooth, but the root of it was the only rotten part. In all fairness, in real life my wisdom teeth are coming in, but they say we shouldn’t take dreams literally.
