Become your own dream interpreter

Accurate dream interpretation does not require you a become a clairvoyant or psychic who can do readings to predict the future, nor an astrologer who knows how to read horoscopes and make forecasts based on your zodiac sign.

Serious dream work compels you to engage your intellect, imagination, and intuition together. It engages both sides of your brain by combining activities associated with the analytical left hemisphere and the intuitive and holistic right hemisphere. Dream interpretation is both intuitive and intellectual, and as such, it can be part of a rich process of personal development.

Unlike the predictions found in horoscopes or psychic readings, dream interpretation relies on your active participation. When you interpret your dreams, put yourself in the shoes of the dream interpreter who understands the symbols and meanings of your dreams the best.

This dream symbol could also point to things you have said that may or may not be really trustworthy. A broken tooth or teeth would symbolize guilt you feel about a broken promise or concerns over promises you or others cannot depend on.

A broken tooth, dream symbol for pain and loss

Broken teeth symbolize pain over losing something that is important to you. You may be currently experiencing changes in your life, transitioning from one place or job to another, ending a relationship or working on modifying your habits.

Dreaming about teeth breaking is a common symbol for concerns over change and loss. Your dream could point to the fear of getting hurt emotionally and perhaps physically as well by an upcoming situation or by someone.

When dreaming about broken teeth means costly compromises

A dream about teeth breaking can be interpreted as a warning about the cost of a decision or action. You may have or are about to make a choice that compromises with your real needs or desires. Broken teeth may represent the emotional pain that comes with such a choice.

A costly compromise is like losing a part of you or denying important needs. Through an image related to the body, a broken tooth or teeth, your dream is most likely pointing to the emotional pain that your decision triggered.

Broken teeth in dreams: An invitation to look at your life direction

Dreaming about broken teeth could be a warning about a course of action you have chosen and its potential drawbacks.

A broken teeth dream is an invitation to look at the path you have chosen. Check if you are losing sight of yourself and your true needs by going after some ideals that may not align with who you truly are or by compromising too much to fit with other people’s expectations.

    I am both fortunately and unfortunately a very vivid dreamer, dream and recall almost every sleep and can remember a good deal of the dreams I’ve had since childhood, as tho they are stored like memories.

    Here’s the latest recurring series that seems to want some attention but I haven’t been able to sort out:

    This is the fifth time in a month I’ve had these two themes in the same order.

    I notice my front tooth is odd, I look in the mirror to get a closer look and this time the side of the front left tooth is cracked and hanging on to the remainder of the other by a thread. I can see inside the tooth now. I think “it’s happening, this time for real…” I remove the hanging piece of tooth and prepare to bring it to the dentist for fixing. First I begin to wash the blood and rot like liquid from inside the remaining tooth. As I finish up and go to spit, I notice my mouth is filled with tiny Nerds (as in the candy) like plastic pebbles or bits and I keep spitting them out over and over but there are always still more. I stand at the sink obsessively spitting and scraping these pebble bits out of my mouth for ages it seems. Rinsing with water, scraping at my tounge and teeth and gums with my fingers, etc. Never removing this terrible feeling of little bits in my mouth. I usually wake shortly after feeling slightly sick because of all this.

    Same two themes. Broken or issues with front teeth. Nerds type plastic pebble bits stuck in mouth.

    I’ve had these themes before but never together like this and not constantly the same (front teeth, Nerds type bits)

    Any ideas?

    Last night i accepted my ex’s friends req & i talked to him. I was feeling guilty because i have a boyfriend now. And when i slept i had this dream. My teeth broke down. Maybe its a warning that talking to my ex won’t end up well

      I had a dream today where my ex was the one who left this time. I always broke up with him in the past. This time, he didnt want to be with me.I was so hesrtbroken and we struggled to make things work. He only tried to make things work because of guilt trip.Relationship for 9 years.. High School sweethearts. Of course I was upset. We always seemed to get back together from a breakup and I thought things would be okay. I remember arguin on the phone begging why he didnt tell me long time ago he didnt feel the same. He didnt have a connection with me nomore. I fell asleep on the phone. Then I had my dream of my jaws clenching up and until my teeth break. I woke up immeadiatley saying kevin for some strange reason. And suddenly, Its like I was okay without him. He was terrible to me for such a long time and it’s like I came to reality with certainty that I no longer felt the same way about him either.

    My broken tooth dream was actually about a tooth that needs a filing in my waking life. In the dream that tooth broke but crumbled into like a million pieces and I kept having to scoop out the tooth remains and that happened for like a while. It was really strange.

And it shut off and it got dark and everyone was amazed, then I got up and felt my teeth and it was loose,and felt off. Then my front felt like it had scratches and it broke off. I told them what they do and did they do a spell toward me ,they said no so I made her take back all that she said , then my uncle came and said he will fix it, he was a dentist in the I don’t know what to think.I get this dream like 2 times a year or so.

  • Kim

    I can not remember anything from my dream except that my own teeth were stained and gross, My canine tooth was cracked in half all the way to the gum. The only other thing in my dream I can recall is fighting rats. Im terrified of rats, but did not seem as scared as I was disgusted, and preoccupied with thinking of my nasty teeth. (My teeth are well taken care of in daily life.
