The Biblical Meaning Of Teeth Falling Out In Dreams
Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings
Even if your blessed and never had a cavity in your life, there is STILL a massive chance you had a dream of teeth falling out! Teeth falling out is one of the most common dreams.
I have looked for extracts connected to teeth throughout the bible and have found little information. what I found above represents natural care, and feeling an outsider. As you know, teeth are crucial for our existence because, we use them to munch on our food. I have written a few (rather detailed) dream interpretations of teeth you can find on my site. However, today I’ll talk about the biblical meaning of teeth in dreams. More specifically, I’ll talk about what teeth falling out in dreams means, according to the Bible. Without further ado!
What is the biblical meaning of teeth falling out in dreams?
Well, scripture allows us to gain a clue of the dream meaning – even though there is very little we can use some passages and apply them. Teeth could be as sign of as following others. This is due to the song in Solomon 6:6 KJV which includes the following passage “Thy teeth are as a flock of sheep which go up from the washing, whereof everyone bearers twins and there is not one barren among them.” The teeth could be a representation of you falling from the flock of sheep. It could be a sign that you feel you are an outside, and can indicate possible adultery? Do you feel an outsider? These are questions you need to ask yourself.
The teeth are also a symbol of natural truth, communication, and protection. In the verse Genesis 49:12 it states “His eyes shall be redder than wine, and his teeth whiter than milk” The eyes are connected to our insight and the teeth our natural protection. Matthew in 8:12 further refers to gnashing of teeth to represent despair. There is little scripture about teeth which we can use as a biblical code. We do know that God speaks to us through our dreams. Luke 13:38 stats “There shall we weeping and Gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob.” This is really the only scripture I could find in connection with teeth in dreams. When we see our teeth falling out in our dream this leaves us with a tidal wave of thoughts about what it means.
Teeth are mentioned in Psalm 58:6. It’s a part of the Bible where King David prays to the Lord to help him destroy the enemies. He said: “Break their teeth in their mouth”. In this sense teeth represent power. And to break a person’s teeth would also break or at least reduce their power. According to this, losing your teeth in dreams can be associated with losing power in waking life. In Ezekiel 30:24, it’s written: “And I’ll strengthen the arms of the king of Babylon, and put my sword in his hand. However, I’ll break Pharaoh’s arms, and he shall groan before him with the groanings of a deadly wounded man.” As you know, teeth are bones too. And breaking someone’s bones also means weakening their power. In some Christian transcripts, dreams in which we lose our teeth foretell our loss of faith. Meaning, the dreamer is being reminded or warned that they’re forgetting about their faith or replacing it with something else, something that will keep the person off the right path.
Okay, you might feel this is far-fetched but the dream of teeth falling out can symbolize a demonic attack on a person’s soul according to some spiritual leaders. Teeth falling out indicates one will become weak and has allowed Satan or some of his servants to poison the soul of the dreamer. I’m not sure if I believe in this interpretation.
Is teeth a symbol of death in dreams?
Now, you probably heard negative interpretations about teeth falling out in dreams because many dreamers claim it’s a symbol of death. Meaning, if you dream of your teeth falling out, someone you know will pass away (don’t freak out I think this is old folklore).
According to the Bible, God is trying to connect with us through our dreams. Now, as I explained earlier. Symbolically, teeth represent tools for “chewing the world of God” so we can digest it easily. Meaning, if you notice your teeth falling out in your dream, maybe you lack wisdom, advice or you are looking for a certain direction.
Here is some specific Biblical meaning of teeth in dreams.
- Your teeth were just falling on the floor: As I mentioned above there is nothing specifically relating to falling teeth in the bible. The best we can sum up is that it is God’s way to communicate.
- You were biting someone else’s food and your teeth broke: This dream means there’s something you cannot understand or you have a hard time processing it. Perhaps you’re trying to take credit for something that you didn’t accomplish.
- You were looking in the mirror and noticed that your teeth are falling out: This dream foretells your lack of wisdom when it comes to self-image and being who you really are instead of pretending to be something you’re not just to be liked.
- Your incisor teeth fall out or come loose in your dream: It symbolizes spiritual vision. However, you probably lack spiritual vision because your “eye teeth” is falling out in your dream. Perhaps you need to step out of your comfort zone.
- Your wisdom teeth fall out or come loose in your dream: It foretells that you lack wisdom in some part of your life. Start thinking on your own and analyze.
- Your front teeth fall out in a dream: It indicates that you’re biting more than you can chew. Or maybe you’re too busy at work to take care of yourself.
Now that you know what different teeth dreams mean, it’s up to you how you will react. Just remember that God is trying to give you advice and help you solve your issues through dreams. Losing teeth means losing your path due to lack of wisdom. It’s your job to work hard on yourself, analyze the person you’ve become, apply certain changes to help you become a better person if you believe it’s necessary and get back on track.
Conclusion on the Biblical interpretation of teeth falling out in dreams
If we have strong teeth, it means we have a healthy and active teeth structure which is important for our survival and socialization. However, to dream that your teeth were all falling out means that you’re probably working against your own beliefs. Maybe you were a believer in God once, and you’ve lost your faith due to hard times and difficulties. Or your faith is shaking. You need someone to point you in the right direction again. Seeing your teeth fall out means that you should fight against things that are turning you. Although you’ve experienced some challenging things, it doesn’t have to mean that you things are going to turn out wrong. We all know that at times life’s not fair. However, karma is.
Several associations of teeth falling out in dreams:
- Worry about things in life
- Painful relationships and getting over them
- Tragedy and calamity - sorry to say!
- Rejection and losing out on something
- Bad luck and worry
- Communication is blocked
As you can see, all these associations weaken the spirit of a person. Experiencing your teeth falling out in dreams might also predict an emotional breakdown and loss of faith in everything that’s good and worth living for.
If you dream of your teeth falling out, it means you’re under spiritual attack. You might feel helpless and alone. However, you never really are alone or helpless. You’re stronger than you think. And you can overcome every challenge or obstacle on your way. Maybe a demonic presence is trying to mess with your head but you’re smarter than that. Regain people’s trust and start apologizing for the things you’ve done and you shouldn’t have.
Satan usually attacks people who lack faith and people who’re alone and feel miserable. It’s time you break up with loneliness and misery and reconnect with people and God. It’s time you enjoy your life like you deserve without feeling guilty. Confess your sins and wait for redemption to save your life. In meanwhile, save what’s left of yourself.
The general interpretation of teeth falling out in dreams If you dream of your teeth falling out, it means that you’ve lost or will lose something of great importance to you. Your dream is reflecting on how you see your life right now.
It is probably falling in different directions. However, nothing’s done until you say it’s done. No battle is lost until you give up. But you’re not born a quitter, right? Dreaming of teeth rolling on the floor means you need to fight back and prove life that nothing can bring you down. Teeth can also signal improving your self-confidence! This can be done by remembering how many times you’ve won in life. Remind yourself of all your losses and challenges and how you have overcome each and every one of them. Don’t let your past mistakes define you.
It’s YOU who has the last word when it comes to your life and your destiny. You can be whoever you want to be. You can do whatever you want to do with your life. No need to make others happy. It’s enough to make yourself happy with fighting about the things you find important.
If you dream of teeth falling out, perhaps you’ve lost balance in life. Perhaps you feel unstable to proceed with life and you feel like your personality is falling apart because it was based on things you don’t believe in anymore. However, don’t forget that there’s always a place for a new beginning, a fresh start and building a better character and a personality from scratch. You just have to be willing to do it and stay true to yourself.
If teeth were falling out in your dream, perhaps you will be taught an important lesson in life. If you lost your teeth in your dream, in older dream books (1930s) it can imply that you’re afraid or ashamed to speak in public. Losing teeth due to someone removing them can suggest that you’re feeling uncomfortable or you’re ashamed of something.
Teeth falling out in a dream might also reflect a person’s low self-esteem and personal issues he or she’s dealing with at the moment. It can also reveal anxiety and depression.
