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.

    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

  • 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

    • Christine

    • meh

      It probably means you that you’re undermining some issues with your sexuality.

  • 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.

  • Samone

    I had a dream where I woke up one morning, and the majority of my bottom teeth were rotten (completely black and disgusting). The back and sides of my top teeth were also black. I freaked out and tried fixing them, but in vain. Could someone help me interpret this? This dream has given me anxiety but I don’t know if that’s because in the dream I was anxious.

  • minakshi

    I saw in my dream that my a decay tooth from last of the row itself was removed without any pain or blood and I was very Happy and contented at that time…..that it came out self without pain and rest of teeth were fine at their place…..
    What does it means???

  • Kayla

    I recently had a dream that I was in a dark unfamiliar place. While I was there I noticed that I had a loose tooth.  I rubbed my tongue across my teeth and noticed there where 2 more loose teeth.  One in the back top, the one directly below it and a tooth close to my incisors.  I opened up my mouth to check them with my fingers and my loose teeth fell to the floor.  Completely frightened I started looking for them in the dark unfamiliar room.  I found a small flight of stairs. I walked down a few steps found one of my teeth, but I was never able to find the others.  But it gets stranger.  After finding my tooth I didn’t know what to do with it.. so I checked my mouth again. Inside where my teeth I lost still there decade and wiggly, but I could tell that I had small if not baby teeth underneath the decade ones.

    • Mat

      NO WAY.

      OK I totally just had a weird ass dream that my teeth were rotting and I was pulling them out and there were little small baby teeth growing under the decayed ones.

      But the scary shit was that when I was pulling my rotted teeth out, I had this horrible taste in my mouth like blood and dirt, and my gums were like ripping and tearing my gums off too and they were all black and rotted. And then the tip of my tongue just like

      fell off dude.

      • Sherilyn

        Wow we had exactly the same dream

      • Olga

        That meant the new The Walking Dead season was going to begin on October… duhhh!😜

      • Gino

        Yo dude I had the same type of thing, my whole left side of my mouth and face began to decay, losing all my teeth and a hole in my cheek I had bloody rotten gums and my mouth was gross and bloody, I looked like 2face from batman, but I had the same terrible taste and it was disgusting, when I pulled my teeth out the back of them had bloody rotten and decayed skin and gum remains on them, but my whole mouth started to fall apart

    • Emily M

      Wow that is scary how similar your dream was to mine I had not to long ago. I was also trapped in a dark room and randomly a tooth fell out. I bent over to pick it up and 2-3 more fell. I think I was in a bathroom cause I ran to a sink panicing and looked in the mirror and my teeth were rotting and falling out but underneath were little tiny baby teeth. I’m kind of glad I’m not the only one that has these horrible dreams.

  • Theo

    I had a dream that I was with my girlfriend. We were joking around with each other like normal and everything was fine. Then she smiled and her teeth looked black. I was confused and thought that maybe she had something on them so I leaned forward and tried to scrape it off with my finger nail… nothing came off, her tooth just wiggled. That’s when I realized her teeth were rotten. She looked scared, she reached into her mouth and tried to scrape it off and she ended up pulling her front tooth out. It really scared me, I felt like I was going to cry. I lead her to the bathroom so she could look in the mirror and when she saw her teeth she started to cry and pull them out one by one…

  • Savonah

    Okay everything I experience doesn’t happen while sleeping but this site is something similar I don’t know I’m Hoping somebody has some insight for me. I am an empath I have spirit visitors come to me all the time I think an old friend put a spell on me he’s involved in dark arts something I’ve always been afraid to mess with we had a fallin out and since then I’ve been having lots of demonic attacks been made on me I moved into this one house been here 2 in a half years and it’s gotten worse like multiple entities and not nice ones….
    OKAY SO HERE IT IS: I was in the bathroom then behind me stand a woman who in some way resembled me a bit but her face and rest of her skin was rotten and decaying something like a zombie she was laughing at me it was evil like she was taunting me also before that I had take.
