dreams about losing teeth
Posted 23 July 2007 - 08:39 PM
The meanings or symbolic represtation of things in dream dictionries have to be taken with a grain of salt. Sure it good to use as a reference, but I think that if you dream of something that means or represents something to you, then I think you'd be listening to you instincts (sp?) over the book. IYKWIM???
Anyway, I looked it up in my dream dictionary a while ago, and at the time the meaning it gave me didin't really make sense to me. I cant remember what it said, and I've since lost the book. I also couldn't relate to it or compare it to anything in my life. It happened in my dream again a couple nights ago and still, nothing.
I wonder if it is significant since I dream about it quite regularly, yet I just can't work out it's significants like I can with some other dreams...

It might not mean that you are actually lying to someone about something, but maybe you are not being true to yourself about something, trying to convince yourself about something, ignoring gut feelings.... possibly presenting yourself differently from the way you usually would ...
Apparently Madonna dreams about her teeth breaking all the time! Which makes ense as she is always changing her public persona...

I was told it was a sign of vanity.
I don't tell too many lies but I admit to being vain

The lying thing could be true in a way I guess, but not that I'm lying about who I am, more that I am changing..so dont know if that would make sense.
Vanity not so much. Don't get me wrong I like to look good, but sometimes I just dont care!
Anxiety could definatley be true! I think this makes the most sense to me. In one way I am a really relaxed person, but there is always something I am worried about. Ha, that doesn't make sense but does to me!
Thanks for the help girls...I'm off to work on my anxiety now!!!

I've had lots of teeth dreams too (they fall out, they change colour, they go soft ) yet another take I've heard on teeth dreams is that they are a sign of anxiety, in my case it's quite believable!
This is what I have always been told and also read. My current dream book says teeth falling out is a sign of anxiety.
I started taking an interest in the interpretation of dreams during my school exams when I had all sorts of weird and wacky dreams.
The one that reoccured the most was walking to my exam at school and having my hand up to my mouth as all my teeth fell out! Thats how I remember the anxiety bit now days it has always stuck with me.

A quick google search and a common theme appears:
1. "One theory is that dreams about your teeth reflect your anxiety about your appearance and how others perceive you. Sadly, we live in a world where good looks are valued highly and your teeth play an important role in conveying that image. Teeth are an important feature of our attractiveness and presentation to others. Everybody worries about how they appear to others. Caring about our appearance is natural and healthy.
Another rationalization for these falling teeth dream may be rooted in your fear of being embarrassed or making a fool of yourself in some specific situation. These dreams are an over-exaggeration of your worries and anxiety.
Teeth are used to bite, tear, chew and gnaw. In this regard, teeth represent 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 is an indication that you need to be more assertive and believe in the value of your own opinion."
2. "Dreaming of teeth falling out may represent insecurity. These dreams often occur at a time of transition between one phase of life and another. When we lost our milk teeth, we also gradually lost our childhood innocence. Loosing your teeth therefore show that today you have similar feelings of uncertainty and self-consciousness as you did in childhood. The dream could also highlight your worries about getting older or your sexual attractiveness."
3. "Your health and well-being. Your ability to do for yourself. Your ability to articulate and express yourself. A dream about losing teeth, or discovering missing teeth, can indicate a feeling or a fear that something has caused you to lose a healthy balance within your physical body or within your mental state or life. Dreaming that someone else loses teeth represents a fear that they will lose an enjoyable or important aspect of their current life"
