    I had a dream that I felt my teeth just xame out I spit into my hand and looking at it than I continue walking.

  • B vaughan

    I had a dream that I was asleep and awoken with severe pain in my mouth and a bunch of people laughing and running from me like they had hit me in the face. I proceeded to spit multiple teeth out into my hand. Then one guy knocked them outta my hand and kicked them all over the room. As I chased him strings of drool flung from my mouth. I then started talking to some people around me and more teeth began to fall out. Some were stuck together with some mechanical looking objects, and some were single. I also was spitting out the metal pieces that I assume were keeping teeth together. Again someone kicked my teeth across the floor and threw them to someone in another room.  I was getting agitated. They were playing keep away with me. I spit out some more teeth but this time into a cup so I could hold onto them and try to collect the others. Then a very short girl confronted me and began to talk to me but I had to spit more teeth out, so her attention and went elsewhere. When I turned around she was sitting with a guy and he he had a mad look on his face when I interrupted them to introduce myself to the girl. When I woke up, it seemed extremely real as if I wasn’t ever really asleep.

    I keep having dreams where I am walking or doing something and then I wiggled my tooth and it fell out then all of my teeth were able to wiggle so i began spitting handfuls of teeth out. For example I had this dream where I was not in swimming clothes and I was next to a pool in a apartment complex I then looked at this gate which leads to the parking lot to see if my car is there. I couldn’t see it so my mom and I walked toward the lot to find my which we did. When I saw my car a lady yelled at me to help her answer a question she had about this sign on the wall. The sign had three rules on it i can only remember one of them which was walking around without being noticed is impossible. Im at a moment in my life where I go to college and I bought my first apartment.

      Similar!!! I dreamnt this a few times but last night I was in the car and i pushed my tooth with my tongue . It started wiggling so I just pulled it out. And then like two more. I was happy when they were out though oddly enough.
      I was just slightly embarrassed I had random gaps. Is always super vivid though so I looked it up this time. I enlist Thursday …

  • Ennard

    I had a dream that I was in a room with bright lights and my best friend was there and we where dancing with liza koshy (I think that’s how u spell it) and me and my friend sat down in a chair when my sports teacher helper came out of no where and put thus type of clip on my moth and tightnd it and it hurt so I pulled it of and I saw looked at my teeth and the left row of teeth at the bottom all fell out one by one I couldn’t feel it but it was terrifying to see and i started tearing up then I woke up and checked that my teeth were still there which they were. Weird thing is tho the dream felt so real and it felt like a dayshavo type feeling and it creeps me out. Now I’m worried my teeth will fall out and I have braces as well

  • Melissa

  • Safya Mink

    I’ve had a few dreams connected to teeth. In the first dream I was in a lot of pain and my tooth just simply fell out.
    In my second dream, I was in a foreign country and while walking down the strest, I met a classmate. He suddenly kicks me in the jaw and my tooth came flying out. I was for some reason very excited about it and rushed up some mountain to show everyone this tooth that had been kicked out of place. I had other dreams regarding pain in my teeth. And yen last night I dreamt that my jaw was in ridiculous pain, my adult tooth was wobbling ando I was freaking out. I was once again abroad in this dream, somewhere near the beach and I was lost in the streets with awful pain because of my tooth. At some point It became unbearable and I pulled it out. Some celebrity came over to me while my mouth was gushing blood everywhere and noted that she liked collecting teeth. But I didn’t want to give it to him for some reason.

    Is it normal to feel such ridiculous pain in your dreams?
    I also can taste food in my dreams and smell smells.
    I’ve read that you can’t taste in your dreams, but I do.
    Is this something that people experience??

  • Rebecca Oldham

    when my dad would have a dream of getting his tooth pulled, somebody in the family would die. It happened everytime he would have this dream. I had one last night and now I’m scared. But my life is in shambles right now so hopefully it’s just instability.

  • Zainab Al-yassery

    (I actually have bottom braces)
    I had this dream where I was punched in the face by my sister and it broke my braces and the wires broke and jabbed into by gums (there was pain) and blood was coming and some of my teeth started to hurt and the gums around the teeth durned black and they started falling out (could actually taste the blood and feel the pain) but I wasn’t freaking out I was keeping it together (for the most part)when I told people they said they would do something but never did. After a while of this I just woke up. I know it’s a crazy dream and doesn’t seem like it fits this “dream category” but I had to mention it. Thank you for your time and if you actually read the whole thing you get a puppy and or kitty. 🐱🐱🐱🐶🐶🐶
