Interpretations of dreams about teeth falling out are very common and questions about this strange dream situation are very often and honest. There are reasons why so many people around the world share very similar dream and are curious about its interpretation. Dreaming about teeth falling out where you hold them in your hands or they fall out one by one is not only horrifying and shocking, but it often leaves you with a lasting image of the dream. So what does it mean?
There are two main theories in Western world about this kind of dream. First theory is that your teeth are your “status symbol”, they symbolize your youth and beauty and dreaming losing them is nothing more than confronting fear of how others perceive you. Your teeth help to convey an image of attractiveness and play an important role in the game of flirtation, whether it is flashing those pearly white, kissing or necking. Thus, such dreams may stem from a fear of rejection, sexual impotence or the consequences of getting old. As a support of this theory we can take the fact that women in menopause report to have frequent dreams about teeth. This points to teeth dreams as being related to getting older and/or feeling unattractive and less feminine. Teeth are an important feature to your attractiveness and how you are presented to others.
Second theory is based on a human feeling of embarrassment, meaning that some situation in which you felt you’ve made a fool of yourself is probably the root of your dream. This dream about teeth failing out could actually be an over-of your worries and anxieties. Think about situations in your life in past month or so, can you see embarrassment that you wanted to avoid by stop thinking about it? The best way to confront fears like this one is to become lucid in your dreams and crash this false brain image forever. Can you be lucid in your dreams?
Teeth are used to bite, tear, chew and gnaw. In this regard, teeth symbolize power. And the loss of teeth in your dream may be from a sense of powerlessness. Are you lacking power in some current situation? Perhaps you are having difficulties expressing yourself or getting your point across. You feel frustrated when your voice is not being heard. You may be experiencing feelings of inferiority and a lack of self-confidence in some situation or relationship in your life. This dream may be an indication that you need to be more assertive and believe in the importance of what you have to say.
