    I had a dream where i was at some sort of summer camp and all of my teeth (particularly on the left side of my mouth) just felt loose and started to fall out but i was trying to hold them in really badly which ended up in me just holding all my teeth in my mouth…..i could taste the blood and i was crying so hard, screaming for a doctor or nurse but i couldn’t speak. None of my loved ones were there or anybody i know in real life, i was basically by myself. Then the doctor told me i was going to die??

    • Aurora

      I had a very similar dream. I was in a house with my family and It started with the bottom half of 4 teeth, they were somehow connected in a row.. Then i “put them back”. Then one tooth came off completely and then 2 more and then the gums and 4 teeth attached came out and everything followed to where I could feel emptiness in my mouth up top but my mouth was full of teeth gums and blood. I went to the hospital and didn’t tell anyone I knew. I just held my mouth and waited for the doctors to help me. For some reason I didnt have insurance and I was worried about the pain I might have during the procedure. Even though the inside of my mouth falling apart didn’t hurt.

    Something about the show seemed Off to me, so I decided to meander around online doing a little research, and I happened upon a link to your blog from the Breaking Amish thread on twop.  After reading your posts (you’re awesome, thank you) I decided to stop watching the show for good.  I can’t support a show in any way that takes no reoilnspbisity for spreading false information about a community and misleading it’s audience – and it’s especially apparent to me the way it seems to portray the Amish in a completely negative and biased light.

  • Linda

    I dreamt that my sister wore a denture o her upper jaw which she does but then she just stopped wearing and under that denture was her real teeth that she kept hidden because they were very small and looked really weird in an adult mouth.  Any help is appreciated.

  • Venus

    I am currently wearing invisalign braces. Usually i take them out to eat then put the back. In my dream I ate. I was feeling sleepy so I got in the bed lay down and proceeded to put my invisalign trays back into my mouth. However, I was having a difficult time getting them in. I was feeling lazy and didn’t feel like getting up and looking in a mirror so I was putting them in blindly. After serveral attempts I realize my teeth had falling out. 4 at the bottom and a few at the top. I was like WTF is going on. LOL then I woke up. Can someone help me with this dream?

    • Lisha

      I THINK that something you routinely do (because putting your invisaligns in and out of your mouth is a routine) is not working anymore and you keep trying to force it to work. You may not realize that you are trying to force it to work or maybe you do and you keep trying because it’s routine you’ve done it so many times that you know you can do it. However,you are having a hard time with it and it is making you insecure (That’s why you kept trying to put the liners back in your mouth not realizing your teeth was falling out until you stop forcing the liners). Sounds like a job, house routines, the way you’ve always handled someone or something.
