Crumbling teeth: Dream symbol for costly compromises

Crumbling teeth in your dream symbolize the cost of making a compromise that could be difficult to sustain long term. Dreaming of crumbling teeth reflect ambivalence you feel about a challenging situation or difficult choice you’ve made recently.

Perhaps you are feeling you have been giving your personal power away in a relationship or are staying in job or company that does not fully satisfy you. Dreaming about teeth crumbling points to the cost of this compromise. For instance you may experience frustration, feeling you’re wasting your talent or your time, value conflicts, tension within yourself or with others.

Teeth crumbling in a dream: When things fall apart in your life

A dream about crumbling teeth could also be a pun on the word “crumbling”: Typically, when things get out of control or are being destroyed under some pressure, we say that they “crumble”. Dreaming of crumbling teeth could indicate that this destructive dynamic is playing in your life.

The idea of losing your teeth or having teeth crumble could point to the fear or concern over losing your power, being involved in a situation where you feel powerless. Crumbling teeth could remind you in dream images that what was once stable and long-standing could very well be unstable and subject to change.

A possible interpretation for this type of teeth dream is about fear of physical aging, losing teeth as they crumble being a symbol of the effect of aging.

Crumbling teeth dream interpretation: Putting it all together

A dream about crumbling teeth is a reminder of consequences of a decision you’ve made. It usually symbolizes a compromise that is costly to you or possibly to people close to you.

When your teeth are crumbling in your dream, ask yourself how viable your decision is long term and consider what other options are available to you.

This teeth dream theme is closely related to the idea of things falling apart, both literally and symbolically. To further interpret your dream, ask yourself:

  • What is currently crumbling under your feet or around you?
  • Do you have the feeling that things are falling apart in your life?

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.

    The crumbling of my teeth has been a recurring dream over the past 10 years or so. Some of the time the teeth would partially come out and then others they would just crumble off the gums. The most recent one I encountered was, I was simply walking along a path of sorts and the teeth were crumbling in chunks off the gums. Ironically, I had a ziplock baggy with me to put them in. Somehow, I reached an entryway with crumbled teeth in baggy and somehow managed to drop a few on the doorstep in a puddle of “yuck”. “The end . . .  ??? what the heck ?? Mixed messages to me.

    My dream started off with me only having a couple teeth, then I go to feel one of them and the whole tooth crumbled off with a slight tug.

    Then as my dream continues, turns out I’m pregnant with a baby giraffe (and I only knew b.c. my belly was transparent), so i went somewhere to get it removed.

    Then i was pregnant with a baby elephant, and I took very good care of this one. But as i was getting into bed, i saw my brother lying on his back on the bed with fabric covering his face, and as I go past him to the other side of the bed, I bump my belly and the elephant ends up dying (drying up and turning into stone)

    In my dream I was in a stairwell, and then I enter this room and two people I know were there. As we sit in this room they look at me as if I am a stranger. But as time goes on in this dream, MY TEETH start crumbling and chipping off. I lost two teeth as well. But when I looked in the mirror I looked better. I didn’t look like anything had changed for the bad.As my dream goes on the people disappear from the room only to reappear. It doesn’t phase me until the end of my dream when the room starts filling up with water and all the doors lock. They are still coming and going as they please as this is happening. These people were also laughing at my teeth situation that I was taking very seriously. I notice my children out the window, They are being put in a car by people I do not know. I bang and bang on the window. But no one takes notice. I start looking for something material wise to break through.(mind you I have no idea where I am in this dream. The room is like in a horror movie and your in a old southern house that is decaying. It looked like down south outside as well, and I have never been down south)anyways I am at the point where I am trying to force myself to wake up, Because I really don’t want this dream. So I am almost through the wall with a huge freaking rock and blood alover my hands. Then poof I pull myself out of my dream and now I sit Wondering WHAT THE FUCK JUST HAPPENED IN MY DREAM! Also, I rarely have dreams, So when I dream I take them very very serious…..

    In my dream, i was back at my high school playing my old clarinet (badly) when i felt something not right in my mouth. I ran to the washroom to look and i just started spitting out ENDLESS amounts of small gravel-like tooth fragments into my hands. I kept all the handfuls in a jar in my backpack thinking my dentist wouldn’t believe what had happened. The worst feeling of it all was constantly having my mouth full of these tooth fragments that i couldn’t clear mt mouth of.

    • Dev

      Same with me, i see this dream so many times, all my teeth crumble and i bite on the fragments with blood oozing and tears falling from my eyes

    • Maggie

      Lauren, I just woke up from a dream like this. And the fragments of teeth started out small and then became excessive and were filling up in my mouth faster than I could spit them out. I looked at my open mouth in a mirror and my teeth were being ‘ground down’ and some where completely gone, and then later (rotten) teeth had started growing in the sides of my mouth. And there was so much blood. Right before I woke up I had this close up view of my mouth after losing what seemed like hundreds of teeth, and my mouth (lips) was deteriorating and seemed to have slow moving maggots in it.

    • Whitney Adams

      This is a reoccurring dream for me. I’m always at my old high school talking with friends when my teeth starts to fall out. I wonder what high school has to do with this. I graduated about 5-6 years ago.
