Sandra’s dream of teeth falling one by one
“Hi! I had the strangest dream about all my teeth falling one by one out my mouth. I was in the bathroom, brushing my teeth in front of the mirror when I feel one of my tooth come loose. I keep brushing and suddenly I see one of my teeth fall out on the counter. I am not phased out by it in my dream, but then I get a little freaked out when I see more teeth coming out of my mouth. There’s blood coming out also. I woke up in panick. What does my dream mean? Please help.”
Dream interpretation of Sandra’s dream of teeth falling out
Dreams about feeling all your teeth falling out one by one can be pretty disturbing. Though, it’s a common theme when people dream about teeth.
The dream setting is important in understanding what your dream means: You said you are in the bathroom, in front of the mirror when your teeth start to fall out. The bathroom could represent a place where you can find privacy. It’s also the place where you clean or cleanse yourself. Mirrors tend to symbolize self-image and are often an invitation to reflect on oneself.
Losing your teeth in front of the mirror could signify that you need to face a minor issue or concern that you have not fully acknowledged yet. This concern could relate to self-image, but also to how you express yourself and communicate with others, to your need for privacy or setting stronger boundaries with close relatives or possibly friends.
The fact that you are just a bit disturbed in the dream and are not freaking out could indicate that you are starting to grasp whatever is bothersome and are not letting yourself be completely freaked out by what you are feeling.
Waking up in panic could be a normal reaction as your conscious self or the part of yourself that has been trying to keep the feelings and concerns away is confronted with pictures and symbols that are hard to understand. The dream imagery of teeth falling out can be quite shocking when its symbolic meaning has not yet been understood.
