Losing Teeth: Common Ground
A dream about losing teeth is telling you something about yourself. It could reflect a feeling of being out of control—like your life has no order to it. Because losing teeth or hair is such a natural thing, something that can happen to anyone, your subconscious makes it a very real possibility in your dreams. But it's metaphoric.
Ann Faraday notes that her own tooth-loss dreams “almost always reflect my feeling that I have ‘lost face’ or ‘spoiled my self-image’ in some way during the day; usually by giving in to emotions of fear or weakness.” Edgar Cayce viewed dreams of losing teeth as metaphors for loose or careless speech. In this case, you might regret gossiping about someone. Women are said to have this sort of dream more than men.
Why do I keep having the “teeth falling out” dream?
If you keep having this dream, it means you're stuck in a particular pattern because some unresolved issue in your life has gotten out of control. Ask yourself what that may be. Have you been gossiping about someone? Are you not sure which way to go with your career? Do your homework and you'll find the answer.
If the suggested interpretations of the previous dream don't work for you, ask yourself what teeth mean to you. Do they represent power? A nice appearance? Aggressiveness? What is it that makes you feel toothless? Do teeth symbolize something to you? It's important to ask yourself these questions. If you're having some of the other popular release dreams, involving nudity, traveling, losing personal possessions, or taking a test, don't worry. We all have them. What's interesting is that common dream themes, like society itself, undoubtedly change over time. For the children of today, new topics may include UFOs and/or alien abductions, computer system crashes, extreme weather, airplane disasters, or other popular media topics. Still, the same message holds true. These common anxiety dreams will continue until you take control of their sources. Do it today.
