    What does it mean if I dreamed of only one molar falling out? I was in a party of a friend from Elementary school I no longer see and who I not miss. Then, my husband and I were leaving and before going out of the building, I felt my right upper molar loose, so I touched it and it fell. I desperately tried to put it back but what I got was blood because of the sharpness and I came to the conclusion of going to the dentist in that very moment..really awkward..I woke up crying..

  • ellie

    my wisdom teeth are starting to come through and one of them is push in one of my back molars and last night i dreamed that i was lying in bed asleep and then i awake from the pain and go to the bathroom and have a look at my teeth, i noticed that already 2 teeth have fallen out but i thought i felt more than that fall out and i was really glad it was one of the side ones because i thought one of the front one fell out, anyway then i just touched one of them and it just came out in my hand, then another. when they fell out i noticed they were very white. Then another tooth came out and this was the last one and was on the very side of my mouth and the tooth that was inside the gum was really long and it came out so easily; i might be getting teeth taken out soon so i thought this might actually mean i wont have to get that done. What does this mean?

  • Abie

    One day I had a dream that my teeth fell out and somehow ended up in my restroom at my house and I noticed when they fell out that, I put them back in crooked I pulled them out and tried to make them straight but they always ended up crooked…. I have pretty decent teeth but this was weird, it freaked me out and I woke up in shock, now I laugh, it was scary though.

  • Maeve

    I have a bridge with a false tooth. In my dream I felt that the tooth next to it was crooked. So I touched it but the bridge came out, no pain, no blood. When I had it in my hand, it looked like an entire draw of things organized such as alligator clips and the like – really bizarre.
    I was with one of my University professors. We were moving from one classroom location to another on an upper floor so we could watch films (which we normally did in class). But the room wasn’t set up properly. I found myself constantly moving from the floor where it was supposed to be to the ground floor and running into people I knew. Not sure what this all means.

  • Denisse

    So… my I’ve had two really strange dreams.

    The first, I remember a tooth fell out and then it was like a waterfall of little teeth streaming out of the area the first tooth fell out. I was really disgusted and scared and I can’t get the image out of my head.

    The next dream happened a few months later. I remember someone poking my tooth and then a few seconds later, it just fell. Then I rushed to bathroom to see if it was noticeable. I thought i was real, so I tried to wake up to feel the area I thought to be the missing tooth. For whatever reason, I was unable to move my body and I started to freak out. It wasn’t until maybe a minute that I was finally able to move.

  • Victoria

    I had a dream where I was falling from a darkness and I hit the ground. When I hit the ground from the pressure and force of hitting the ground my top teeth came out and ended up in my bottom gums. It was very painful and felt so real, it was a nightmare. I woke up.

    Okay I’ve had these kinds of dreams a lot but recently I dreamt that I was at my school with a lot of people I knew, and this girl was being extremely mean to everyone and I was starting to get mad and I finally snapped and yelled at her. Then I went into the bathroom and cried because I was so mad and suddenly my teeth became loose and they all fell out.

  • Gigi

  • emp

    I recently had a dream where I remember losing about 5 teeth. I was minding my own business
    I just felt them come out of my mouth and into my hand. They were purple and green like they
    were bruised or rotted, but they also looked like baby teeth because they were quite small.
    I can relate to the entry about rotten teeth, my life has also been very stressful.
    I have dreams where my teeth feel loose, but this was the first time any had fallen out.

  • Dying slowly

    I’m a female 15 year old and I’m finally gonna meet my boyfriend from another country. I know he’s “safe” because be is a gaming friend of my father, but I keep having sleeping troubles. I’m usually meeting someone, like my boyfriend or walking somewhere with mum. Then I feel a tooth is hanging loose, so I push it gently into place, but it falls out. Blood pours out and tooth after tooth fall out. I panic and see blurry while trying to stop them from spurting out, but drowns in my own blood. I wake up sweating and crying, scared and longing for an embrace of a loved one. Can this be because of my dark past with my parents? Am I just yearning for ‘him’? Help..!
