Dreams About Teeth: What Does it Mean?

This is one of the craziest dreams but so many people have this dream. From falling out, crumbling, spitting, moldy, rotten, broken through to disfigured teeth dreams, I will cover all the meanings here. 

Perhaps a whole section of your mouth becomes toothless and bleeding by the time you're done spitting it out? It's hard to believe that this is happening in your dream and you don't know what to do. If you are stuck in a stressful job you might have nightmares about teeth which the dream is connected to the fear of losing financial security. A person who is in an abusive relationship will be more susceptible to dreams of repetitive tooth loss dreams, which include severe bleeding and gaping wounds. Sigmund Freud, the famous dream psychologist believed that dreams about losing teeth are a symbol of how we feel in life. Freud believed that teeth being lost indicates change and that we are feeling oppressed, and I will talk about this below. Teeth dreams are your brain's way to let you know that you are feeling a bit stressed out.

Is the dream of teeth or a tooth good or bad?

I find it fascinating that the lack of chewing in our society has changed the shape of our teeth, due to evolution. Most cooked food is soft, for example, mashed potatoes, chocolates, yogurts, and eggs. Therefore, we only spend on average one hour a day chewing, compared to three hours in paleolithic times. This has resulted in dental problems in society. Teeth represent our bite in life. The aggressive nature inside, the condition of the teeth, and the actual theme of the dream can determine if this was a good or bad dream. Dreams, where the teeth are on the floor, can suggest that you are looking to pick yourself up from stress, perfect teeth or veneers in a dream are positive and shows that you wish to connect with someone deeply - to make things perfect.

What does it mean to dream of teeth?

It’s not always easy to pinpoint the exact reason why you have had this dream, but generally, as I have said above, dreaming about your teeth or those of others can represent feelings of anxiety, insecurity, or vulnerability. It may indicate you are feeling vulnerable in some situation or fear something will happen soon that you're unable to protect yourself from.

While there isn't one definition for this type of dream, some common interpretations might include the loss of power or control over something, stress over finances, and other matters—in essence anything that could cause worry or concern. Think back on what happened just before the dream; was there an argument with a loved one? A work disagreement? Those same issues may be at play in the unconscious mind while we sleep and manifest themselves through our dreams.

Seeing teeth that are moldy and smelly (maybe broken), means this is related to oral hygiene and dental health; dreaming of broken or decaying teeth could symbolize health concerns you currently have (or need to attend to). Symbolically speaking, these kinds of dreams typically reflect a fear that your voice won’t be heard by others due to potential worries about being judged negatively—whether real-life circumstances require such insecurity remains unknown until further investigation into the dreamer's life events occurs! Sometimes dreaming about teeth goes a little deeper; I'm sure that many times we have unresolved issues from childhood that lurk beneath our conscious awareness but can still haunt us during our sleeping hours.

What are the common teeth dreams?

Over the 16 years I have been running this website there appear to be some common dreams related to teeth.

  • Losing Teeth: This type of dream can signify major life changes or a lack of control in waking life. It could be a sign that something is changing in your career or personal relationships, and it’s causing you to feel insecure or uncertain.
  • Rotting Teeth: You may have had this dream if you’re feeling ashamed or embarrassed for something you did recently, which has left you feeling guilty and insecure about yourself. Dreaming of rotting teeth suggests that these feelings need to be addressed before they consume your psyche completely.
  • Teeth Falling Out in Clumps: This type of dream indicates that there is an important message being sent from inside yourself, warning that something isn’t right within your current environment or lifestyle choices – either too little structure/motivation/support or too much chaos/stress/responsibility – just enough so that it needs addressing right away rather than later down the line when things become more difficult to manage effectively.
  • Brushing Teeth: To brush one's teeth is usually associated with cleanliness, meaning this type of dream suggests renewal and refreshment are necessary for future success; giving time off from everyday stressors will allow us to take stock of our lives and set our goals accordingly for improved outcomes overall.
  • Crooked Teeth: Dreams featuring crooked teeth suggest some kind of injustice occurring around oneself that needs addressing sooner rather than later - either due to being taken advantage off by someone close /involving situations where even though we put in a lot of effort, the rewards don't seem proportionately plentiful.
  • Shiny White Teeth: For people who experience this kind, its usually seen as a positive thing(unless overly glittery) indicating great luck & prosperity ahead - especially if there's any gold encrusted along with them; while others may see this as indicative (albeit subconsciously)of their own vanity taking precedence over more important things like building meaningful relationships.
  • Misaligned Tooth: Feeling unbalanced & out-of-sync mentally (as well as physically)is normally displayed via misaligned tooth dreams --- they tend to reflect how we may not particularly fit into certain groups /situations without the likelihood to improve anytime soon - recommending instead than focusing on ourselves& living authentically according to our true desires and beliefs; regardless whether they're approved by the masses at large. 
  • Spitting out teeth: This is probably a mash-up of all the experiences that you may have had recently, seeing yourself spitting out your teeth is about the fact you are worrying in life. A study by PNAS in 2019 found that when you are stressed out spitting out teeth is a nightmare and this leads to vivid dreams.
  • Missing Tooth: Dreams featuring missing teeth are thought sourced mainly from “worries” related to money matters --- and --- not necessarily financial insecurity but simply having the ability to afford desired items and experiences which aid us greatly towards following our roadmap realistically through daily existence. 

What is the spiritual meaning of a dream about teeth?

Your mouth is a powerful force (spiritually) that carries your voice and emotions out into the world. Symbolically, it can be thought of as what I will say an “instrument” with which you communicate your innermost thoughts and feelings. And because our mouths contain teeth, dreams about seeing teeth (especially your own) may have something to do with how we use our voice and speak up for ourselves.

In my book, the Moondust dream dictionary it mentions that teeth often appear in dream symbolism when there’s an underlying need for personal protection or defense. If you find yourself dreaming about having bad teeth or no teeth at all, this could mean you feel insecure in some way - like you don’t have the strength or power to defend yourself against attack. Similarly, if you dream of having sharp teeth this could indicate that fear has been aroused within your subconscious mind - likely based on real-life experiences where someone made threatening remarks towards you that scared you off from speaking up for yourself.

What did the teeth look like?

The condition of your teeth is really important in a dream, maybe they were perfect maybe they were rotten or you did not even have any. Feeling that the teeth are not in great shape is connected to the sense of weight you are carrying in life.

  • Teeth falling out – This typically signifies weaknesses in identity; feeling lost; unpreparedness; lack of confidence
  • Damaged/rotten teeth – Can symbolize feeling ashamed/guilty due to not adequately caring for oneself; feeling unattractive or inadequate
  • Shiny white perfect teeth – Likely related to prideful ambition; striving for perfection; wanting others' approval

I also need to mention that dreams of “quantum jumping” are connected to vivid dreams featuring prominent imagery like our mouth, lips, tongue, or throat. I also believe that teeth are associated with a “message” we seek will be revealed through further exploration into our subconscious psyche!

What does it mean when you dream about losing teeth?

  • Figure out your passion in life and stop stressing
  • Don’t make decisions based on temporary matters, be patient and make the right decisions
  • Don’t be silent practice communication and the art of giving others your point of view
  • In life, we often feel insecure and make sure we don’t go backward and always forward
  • The one thing that empowers you is what lies within you 

Think about how you want your life to look. Do not panic about your dream and think you have to tell your boss tomorrow morning or change your career or your relationship overnight. You can respond and stop this kind of dream by reviewing your priorities and putting the promises you made to yourself higher on the list. Shiny white enamel teeth can haunt our dreams in many ways. 

Does dreaming of teeth mean death in real life?

Although many connect teeth dream with death this is due to gypsy folklore. There are many predictions in dream lore that also point out that a dream of teeth has nothing to do with death. If you had a dream in which your teeth were falling out or most famously spitting out teeth is connected with your teeth. Many people associate teeth with death, and in the research that I found only a few people actually died – it’s a pure coincidence in my view. Teeth dreams are all about changes, self-perception, inner strength, and more importantly the fear of losing something in life, rather than losing something forever. Teeth are also a symbol of your self-confidence. To see large, white beautiful teeth – indicates that you will have much self-confidence. 

Famously, Arabian Caliph in Islam dreamt that his teeth were dropping out. When he consulted an interpreter, he told him this was a bad omen, and that his parents were likely to die. The Caliph had the dream interpreter whipped. 

He later consulted a further dream interpreter who told him that his dream was a good omen and that he can expect to outlive his parents. His parents did not die, but it is interesting to note that the ancient dream interpretation of the loss of teeth is generally connected to death or the death wish. Generally, any dream involving teeth portends aggressive sexuality, but normally this dream means that you are undertaking some type of transition from childhood through to maturity.

What is the spiritual meaning of teeth falling out in a dream?

According to my website statistics, “teeth” is one of my most searched-for dreams. Since ancient times dreams have been associated with predictions of the future. The tooth dream in folklore is quite negative I am sorry to say. It presages that power may be lost or challenged. This dream is usually less severe than the more extreme versions. These dreams usually involve losing a tooth or finding out that one of your teeth has fallen out. This type of feedback after a decision serves to remind you that while a temporary compromise can be strategically advantageous, there are real costs associated with maintaining the course for the long term.

If teeth are missing from the mouth, pulled out, breaking, or spat out indicates our own internal stresses. It is true to say that in dream psychology teeth are connected to our own stress levels. Therefore, I can conclude that this is a stress-induced dream. 

Sometimes we dream that our teeth are black, moldy, or rotten. Spiritually this implies the crown borrowed success. As the teeth are being lost in a dream it can indicate that you need to work on meditation grounding.

Why do I dream about my teeth falling out?

This dream can indicate you will naturally encounter a feeling of insecurity. In psychology, our teeth coming out represents not only stress but also the feelings of not being secured in an element of life, this could be a relationship alternatively job. It’s important to note that teeth coming out represents emotional times ahead. If you cannot touch your teeth in your mouth then this shows that you’re going to go through a period of engagement. It may be that you uncover a difficult situation or that you are trying to find the best course of action to solve a problem. You should spend more time with people who support you, do activities that release you, and pursue pursuits that restore balance. It is important to be clear about your thoughts and to decide what you can and cannot bear. Here is more detail about why you may have dreams of teeth falling out.

1. Dreams about teeth are about making decisions:

Dreams about losing your teeth could indicate that something is not balanced in life. It is normally associated with personal objectives. If the teeth are just coming out of your mouth you are trying to catch them and this can indicate that you need to change certain aspects of your life. The symbolism of your teeth being lost on the floor can indicate the end of a period in life. Normally this type of dream occurs during the REM sleep stage. It can indicate you are going to be confronted with many different opportunities going forward. Everything is manageable and you must try to enhance your life for the greater good after having such a dream. 

2. Dreams about teeth are connected to problems in life:

Dreaming about losing teeth can also signify you might be facing a number of problems and that you do not know how to solve them. I like to think that the chief represents our own protective crown. Teeth are broken or in poor shape, it is a symbol whereby you need to draw attention to inner concerns.

3. Dreams about teeth are connected to identity issues:

Dreaming about losing teeth is concerned with our own personal identity. Everybody has a smile, in a dream state if you are unable to smile because of the chief being lost this can create the perception. There are issues about perhaps assertiveness, self-confidence, and also overcoming anxiety. As your teeth are missing, it can indicate that you need to find your own identity and communicate better with people. Being toothless is a reminder that you need to face challenging situations and be one with your own identity.

What did Sigmund Freud write about dreams of losing teeth?

I have touched on dream psychology in my opening paragraph, the Freudian that the dream is connected to male private parts. Yes, you heard right! It is associated with a partner or someone who holds power and control over you. Freud researched extensively what dreams about teeth really meant. The dream is caused normally by power shifts. It can denote a sudden loss of control over something important in life. If you are feeling your power has been taken from you then this dream is common.

When one struggles to complete a task in life, this dream is common. If you lose teeth in your dream, then this represents fear. This dream is a message to make sure you are hundred percent healthy, as it can signify some type of illness, go to the doctor and get yourself checked out if you feel unwell. 

What does it mean to dream of two teeth falling out?

Dreaming about two teeth falling out can be symbolic of a variety of things, depending on the context and other details within the dream. Generally, it symbolizes having something precious taken away from you or feeling as though you are losing something that has been yours. In many cases, dreaming of teeth falling out can indicate feelings of insecurity or a sense that the dreamer is losing their identity in some way.

The symbolism of “teeth” in dreams I feel is associated not only with communication but also with me, personally, dreaming about two teeth falling out indicates that I am feeling vulnerable and powerless in regard to my own life or the situations I'm in. It's my way of saying that I feel like someone or something has taken away control from me without permission or cause and put me into a position where I don't have much choice but to accept it. 

Dreams such as these often point towards situations where there was a potential conflict between two people such as disappointment due to unfinished words. All these together might lead us into a place where we’re constantly dreading a sort of conflict within. 

What does it mean to dream of a dentist removing teeth?

If the tooth is removed then you feel a sense of relief, this is exactly the advice the dream is giving you. Make sure that you remove yourself from situations that are stressful. By doing this you will make sure that your life will become a lot easier as you move forward with success. Remove the problem to feel relief. If you dream of your teeth actually falling out, then this goes back to your childhood and that you have been living a carefree existence for some time now.

What does it mean to dream of a hole in my tooth?

Dreaming of a hole in your tooth can be interpreted as a gateway to communicating something that has been distorted or hidden. Your teeth are the perfect representation of something you want to communicate but feel like it is outside your control.

The shape of our teeth in real life affects how we use words to communicate with others — just as we do with our teeth, we filter out what we think is right or wrong. We express ourselves by controlling what goes in and out. Teeth provide us the ability to open up and talk about things that may be difficult or challenging for us, yet still allow us to protect ourselves from any potential danger that comes with expressing those thoughts or feelings.

My belief is that the symbolism behind teeth varies depending on culture and mythology, often viewed as symbols of strength, power, knowledge, wisdom and even vanity — all characteristics associated with how we communicate. Therefore when dreaming of a hole in your tooth it could represent an issue within yourself where you feel like a part of yourself is being left unsaid due to fear or insecurity over voicing these sentiments due to their level of vulnerability/authenticity needed for proper communication purposes.

What do dreams of crumbling teeth mean?

Have you ever had that dream of your teeth suddenly crumbling in your mouth? Or you spit out crumbling teeth? To dream of crumbling teeth is (according to folklore) a negative dream. I can assure you please don’t worry about this negative interpretation too much. Sigmund Freud believed that bad or missing teeth reveal that you may be feeling powerless and subsequently you may have to face the consequences of control and power.

A dream of crumbling teeth around your feet can suggest that you need to think about how you communicate with others. It could also suggest that things will work out well. Maybe you dreamt that you had tooth decay or alternatively you went to the dentist to have some crowns or bridges fitted, then they began to collapse and crumble. Our teeth are patched up through fillings but over time many fragments break away. I myself have even experienced a crumbling tooth in real life and in dreams. 

Dreaming of having “brittle” teeth can actually mean something. The crumbling tooth in real life is associated with wanting something to be removed in life. If you dream your crumbling teeth were removed, fragment by fragment by a dentist this implies in dream lore that success will prevail. Crumbling teeth in my research suggest there is a sense spiritually that a “situation” will need directing. To see another person in a dream whose teeth crumble indicates a difficult decision to make in the future. Maybe you feel like you’re losing your power over something. Perhaps your relationship isn’t working as you imagined but it will do. It could be that your partner does not feel right for you. Crumbling teeth in dreams have been related to the feeling of getting old. In particular, fearing the loss of beauty and attractiveness.

Dreaming of your teeth crumbling on the floor could be one of the most upsetting dreams you can have. It's natural to feel confused and anxious when attempting to interpret this type of dream since it can seem like a physical issue even though it is connected to emotions.

The dream of teeth crumbling indicates being overwhelmed by circumstances and having difficulty maintaining control over health-related problems, financial pressure, or social anxiety. The dream indicates fear at the prospect that life may not turn out as expected due to these concerns; thus leading us toward self-doubt and vulnerability.

If your teeth are decaying (maybe you have been to Turkey to get veneers in a dream) tooth indicates some emotional crisis based on anxiety levels being too high for a prolonged period of time — think stress eating sweets. It may also reflect trouble speaking up for yourself during times when difficult decisions need to be made (loose teeth equalling weak words). In the real world,  loose teeth usually come with other health issues like bad breath — signifying actual worries about hygiene habits resulting from mental distress manifesting itself physically in other areas such as mouth care.

What does it mean to dream about loose teeth?

Dreams about loose teeth are incredibly common and widely discussed. It can be quite confusing trying to figure out what they mean, so if you've been experiencing weird dreams like that, don't worry — you're not alone! Dreams about loose teeth typically represent a fear of change or insecurity. On the surface level, it could mean that you’re feeling insecure in a certain social situation, such as being nitpicky around your friends or feeling intimidated when talking to someone new. On a deeper level, dreaming about loose teeth may signify an upcoming life-altering event or change — one that could either cause fear and anxiety due to its uncertainty or be exciting but also scary at the same time.

While this type of dream is in my view sometimes a negative omen for some people, it doesn't necessarily mean it is. If these types of crazy teeth dreams are something you commonly experience, maybe try challenging yourself and seeing how far your courage can take you emotionally and mentally. Dreaming about loose teeth represents fear of change on superficial levels yet on deeper ones – adventurousness in exploring the unknown elements of life while growing personally and professionally with each coming day! 

What are the ancient dream meanings around teeth?

The general tendency in dream interpretation is to move away from isolated symbols and to interpret the dream as a whole. The traditional oracles in connection with what teeth mean generally account for one's individual thoughts and feelings. Historic meanings of spitting out teeth generally mean that you are going to eat your own words. Remember what you say and think before you give your opinion to others. 

Teeth falling out or coming out easily indicate that you are going through some form of transition in your life. This means that sexual maturity is likely to happen in the future. If teeth are dropping out, this shows you have a fear of aging or are scared of moving on in your life. In traditional folklore, being born with one tooth generally means that a baby is likely to be a problem child. Ancient dream dictionaries foretell that any dream involving your teeth is generally unlucky, especially if they have actually fallen out completely.

What’s the psychological meaning of teeth falling out in your dream?

Two well-known psychoanalysts have analyzed this dream: Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud.  Carl Jung believed that dreams of teeth are connected to aggressiveness, danger, powerlessness, or a sense of being threatened. He further theorized in his books that when teeth crumble or break apart in a dream it represents repressed feelings or thoughts suddenly coming to light. In his writings, he states that if your dream features healthy-looking teeth then it may signify an expression of control over one’s emotions. 

The other famous psychologist “Sigmund Freud” thought that dreams involving healthy-looking teeth were indicative of positive energy – specifically related to the oral stage – which is a phase during infancy where babies start putting objects into their mouths as they explore and gains more independence from their parents. The interpretation of dreams by Sigmund Freud can provide some insight. he wrote on page 83 of this book about concealing teeth. He also wrote that decaying or missing teeth suggest anxiety associated with aging and fear about no longer being sexually desirable. 

Clearly, there can be multiple interpretations for dreaming about teeth; however regardless of perspective, it seems evident that this type of dream usually reflects some kind of struggle for power between two opposing forces within our psyche e.g fear vs courage; vulnerability vs security; desire vs repression if you get my drift.

Freud believed that the concealing of false teeth indicates that there is going to be some examination in life. To dream of your teeth falling out is one of the most common dreams in history. I have carried out research into this dream and I have been studying dreams for 20 years. I’m Flo and I wish to share some interesting facts about this dream. 

And although many claims this dream represents something negative and unfortunate, we say the opposite – the interpretation of this dream is positive and refers to changes. Sigmund Freud analyzed teeth that when you dream of your teeth falling off, your dream has a sexual connotation, but as you know, with Freud everything is related to sex. 

In Freudian times, this dream was likely to be associated with relationships. The dream generally indicates a sense of loss in love. The image of an extracted tooth is symbolic and related to some type of loss. The emotion that you feel in your dream is important, because the extraction of the actual truth may be positive, which completely changes the meaning of this dream from negative to positive. 

Freud always believed it is impossible to fully interpret teeth dreams. When trying to find the answer to why this dream has suddenly happened in your life, it is important to understand the emotions and feelings that you experienced within your dream. It is important to realize that you are likely to experience a lack of communication from someone close to you the next month. The individual meanings associated with losing your teeth will be dependent upon how you feel during your dream. 

Maybe you have had a difficult period of time around work, and it is time to think about what you really want from life in general. It is important to note that this dream has been considerably searched for during June, one of our top performers. Many people in ancient dream interpretation books especially from the 1920s generally associate dreaming of teeth with erotica. Raphael expresses a general view that to dream your teeth are lose it generally predicts illness of some kind.

This is a super weird dream and getting a tooth out at the dentist is never a great experience! Dreaming of your teeth being pulled out (maybe by a dentist) can be a sign of underlying issues with your oral health. It is important to investigate further and not take this dream lightly.

Failed root canals, cavitation, decay, or other dental work could cause pain so severe that it may manifest itself in your dreams. Having a root canal at the dentist is all about holding your nerves --- after all ---- cleaning out of the interior nerve chamber in order to ensure no bacteria is the aim, so ask yourself. Without proper care, this could lead to an infection which manifests as a continual feeling of pressure within the tooth along with spontaneous headaches and neck pains. If left untreated long enough bacteria will work their way through the cavity-causing recurring infections resulting in a failed root canal treatment that must be re-treated or removed altogether - oftentimes dreaming of having one’s teeth removed is just warning us to get our mouths checked before something serious occurs!

Decay is another common cause for dreams about pulling out teeth; if you do not brush twice daily and floss at least once each day then you are leaving yourself vulnerable. This buildup slowly eats away at tooth enamel allowing bacteria into deeper layers and likewise cavitations are also another possible explanation for these dreams.
