Many people dream about teeth falling out in some form or another, but what is this common dream really telling us?
A teeth falling out dream can have a number of meanings and we're going to take an in-depth look at this below.
Waking up from a dream about teeth falling out leaves a horrible feeling in the mouth for most people, and yet it is one of the most common recurring dreams.
This type of dream can actually represent a transition period taking place in your life. The horrible feeling that you get in the dream when you lose your teeth can represent the anxiety or uncertainty that may be experienced in times of change.
It is no surprise then that teeth falling out dreams are commonly experienced by children as they move into adulthood, or by women as they go through menopause.
A dream about teeth falling out can also represent feeling insecure about some part of yourself or your life. You may have concerns about self-image or how you are being perceived or treated by others.
When we are children people often make fun of how we look when we lose our teeth and so we have this deep subconscious memory of feeling mistreated, being made fun of or not being taken seriously because of how we look when we lose our teeth. The anxiety you feel in the dream about having missing teeth can therefore symbolize your concerns over self-worth, self-image, or how you are being treated by others.
When you have this type of dream you will often find that it coincides with a recent situation in your life where you feel that you haven't been taken seriously, you've been made fun of or are not being treated as an equal.
Dreams of teeth falling out can also highlight your feeling of having lost something or someone in your life.
The deep subconscious memory you have of losing your teeth as a child can be associated with the feeling of losing a part of yourself, and so the dream itself can be highlighting the feeling of loss in your life.
It is therefore common for those that have a fear of growing old to have a dream about teeth falling out, and this is particularly true if you see false teeth in the dream.
