One theory is that dreams about your teeth reflect your anxieties about your appearance and how others perceive you. Your teeth help to convey an image of attractiveness and play an important role in the game of flirtation, whether it is flashing those pearly white, kissing or necking. Thus, such dreams may stem from a fear of rejection, sexual impotence or the consequences of getting old. To support this notion, a dream research found that women in menopause report to have frequent dreams about teeth. This points to teeth dreams as being related to getting older and/or feeling unattractive and less feminine. Teeth are an important feature to your attractiveness and how you are presented to others. Caring about how you look is natural and healthy.

Another rationalization for these falling teeth dreams may be rooted in your fear of being embarrassed or making a fool of yourself in some situation. These dreams are an over-exaggeration of your worries and anxieties. Perhaps you feel that you are unprepared for the task at hand. However, you will find that your worries are unfounded in most cases. Sometimes what plays out in your mind is far worse than what is reality.

Teeth are used to bite, tear, chew and gnaw. In this regard, teeth symbolize 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 may be an indication that you need to be more assertive and believe in the importance of what you have to say.

Traditionally, it was thought that dreaming that you did not have teeth, represent malnutrition or poor diet. This notion may still be applicable to some dreamers.


A scriptural interpretation for bad or falling teeth indicates that you are putting your faith, trust, and beliefs in what man thinks, rather than in the word of God. The bible says that God speaks once, yea twice in a dream or a vision in order to hide pride from us, to keep us back from the pit, to open our ears (spiritually) and to instruct and correct us.

In the Greek culture, when you dream about loose, rotten, or missing teeth, it indicates that a family member or close friend is very sick or even near death.

According to the Chinese, there is a saying that your teeth will fall out if you are telling lies.

It has also been said that if you dream of your teeth falling out, then it symbolizes money. This is based on the old tooth fairy story. If you lose a tooth and leave it under the pillow, a tooth fairy would bring you money.

Very nice interpretation, I just want to add one of mine.

Since I've got braces way too long (it's always too long), this kind of burned into my soul. I felt ashamed, was fixated on my teeth. Also when I was a child I got a very poor mouth hygiene and therfore my first teeth just rotted away. This hurt not only physically but ashamed and hurt me on a deeper level, maybe even my body remembers. Those things just cling to me, and therefore sometimes I dream about my teeth in remembrance.

First of all I think most of the time dreams are just the mind’s way of sorting through our day and have no major significance. There are of course exceptions to this idea and one of those exceptions are recurring themes. Having a dream, with only slight variations, over and over again will sometimes mean that there is a major issue in our life that for some reason we can’t effectively deal with or don’t even realize we have.

As to teeth falling out it can have different meanings some of which have already been mentioned but there is one other that shouldn’t be overlooked.

We’re humans, higher animals, noble beasts, and so on and so forth. But, the fact is that it isn’t that long ago our ancestors were swinging from tree limbs and howling in the night. One of the primary means of defense for most animals is their teeth. Teeth make it possible to eat the kind of food our ancestors had available (no dentures for primates lol), teeth helped them defend themselves when attacked too.

A fear of losing teeth can be the primitive mind’s (and we all have a portion of our mind that is still quite primitive) way of saying you feel powerless and defensive in some way or about something important.

I would suggest simply thinking about your life a bit and trying to figure out if there is some aspect of it where you feel powerless or threatened.

I have had the same type of dreams! And they definately point out that your self-concious about your teeth, maybe to an obsession with them or you feel that they are not perfect.

That's interesting about teeth falling out. I never knew what that meant.
I had a dream where all my teeth fell out about a year or so ago and it tripped me out. I guessed it had to do with stress or something.
But, that's way interesting.
I love dream meanings! (:
Breathing in I feel gratitude; Breathing out I give thanks.
Breathing in I feel joyful; Breathing out I celebrate.
Breathing in I know compassion; Breathing I am compassion.
Breathing in I feel loved; Breathing out I offer love.
Breathing in I am still; Breathing out I am at peace.
Om.
