Dreams of teeth crumbling teeth can be associated with one's insecurity in life. The fact the teeth "crumble" means that an area of waking life needs your attention.

Crumbling teeth are connected to a power of transformation. The crumbling teeth in your dream can be indicating a difficulty in life. If we look at how animal’s use their teeth as a symbolism they use “teeth” as a defense mechanism. The crumbling teeth seen in your dream can indicate a loss of control in life or that you are unable to defend an attack by your enemies. My opinion is that crumbling teeth is associated with feeling a lack of control in life. Diving into the Jungian symbolism - crumbling teeth is associated with weakness after a period of aggression control. If you don’t have any teeth and the dream indicates you’re not in control or have the power. If we turn to symbolism it can indicate that your energy and self-defense is down.

Shiny white crumbling teeth can haunt our dreams in many ways. Crumbling, or trying to spit out fragments of teeth have even entered my dreams over the years. Crumbling teeth in dreams can be due to neglect, decay or trauma regarding a situation in life. To see your teeth crumble in your dream is a folklore sign of regret. It means you have said or done something you regret. Maybe you’ve gossiped about someone or others have told lies about you? Or someone has criticized you in waking life without reason? I will say this. What’s been done, has been done. And if you can’t do anything about it – it’s always the best way to let it go, forgive and forget. This dream also reflects a lack of dental care. According to dentists, good dental care is mandatory. Crumbling teeth in a dream illustrate that you need to take good care of your teeth if you want them to last longer. Take daily care of your teeth with brushing and flossing.

What causes crumbling teeth in real life?

I like to include some facts about my dream meanings. According to dentist claims, older adults have a problem with crumbling teeth than others. But the erosion of teeth doesn’t come with aging and can happen at any age. Crumbling teeth is generally caused by acid from our stomach coming from a Gastrointestinal reflux disease, also known as acid reflux disease. I am sure you have heard of this, but if you have not this problem causes stomach acid to reverse its way back to the esophagus, from a short distance of the mouth. This medical condition can be caused by damage or dis balance of the natural barrier between the esophagus and the stomach and it usually happened in our later years. But this doesn’t mean that teeth erosion can’t occur at a young stage of life. If you’re still young and have tooth erosion, you need to pay your doctor a visit.

Dreams of teeth crumbling teeth symbolize four main aspects of life. The following are the four main interpretations of this dream:

  • A decision or compromise that is costly. When you have a dream of your teeth crumbling, it can mean that there is awkwardness you feel for having made some wrong choice in a difficult situation. For instance, you may be feeling negative regarding a relationship. You feel used by others. You can’t get out of something in waking life because you already made the decision. The dream points out the true cost of compromise (with others) after making a costly decision.
  • Things may fall apart in waking life. Just from the word ‘crumbling’ itself this dream can mean that things in waking life are falling apart. Having a dream of crumbling teeth may mean that things are getting out of control in your life and you are powerless and seem unable to take any action.

  • Fear of aging effect on your body and health. You may have some fear because of physical aging since most people do not enjoy growing old. The dream of crumbling teeth can be seen as a symbol of aging. When you have such a dream, it can portray one's fear of the effects that aging can bring on health and the body.
  • Losing your power and feeling powerless The dream of crumbling teeth can suggest a decision that you are about to make will be rather costly.

What is the biblical meaning of teeth?

I am going to briefly cover the biblical meaning of crumbling teeth in dreams because I think it is important for you to understand. Teeth generally indicate nourish the soul and also the body. There is also a connection to the truth in life, which is natural. After reading scripture on teeth and dreams there is a focus on grinding yourself down in regards to dreaming of the teeth. Do you feel ground down? The biblical meaning of teeth is related to the external, natural appearance. Therefore, it stands for truth and the understanding of life. In fact, life is quite simple, but people tend to make things more difficult. Teeth are mentioned a couple of times in the Bible in association with the understanding of life. Thanks to our teeth, we are able to feed ourselves and survive. Thus, our teeth also represent a tool God gave us to help us survive. And that’s why it’s so important to keep our “tools” healthy. Teeth are also connected to spiritual food – intelligence, peace, and wisdom. Teeth are featured in Moses writings as follows. “His eyes shall be redder than wine, and his teeth whiter than milk (Gen. 49:12)”

I will finish now by saying that you should not worry too much about your crumbling teeth dream, in life we all need to sometimes focus on yourself even though problems may enter them. If there is a dream that I have not covered then please get in touch and I can provide you with the meaning. My Facebook comments are below. Blessings, Flo
