Dreaming of teeth represents issues surrounding responsibility and maturity. Teeth also portray the manner and style in which you communicate.
Sometimes I have dreams that my teeth are falling out and it scares me. Please tell me what it means?
Dreams of teeth falling out can indicate that you are feeling fearful. Often this fear correlates to new responsibilities and life changes. Just as you lose teeth through childhood, symbolically this indicates a process of maturation. People frequently dream of teeth falling out when facing new chapters in their lives such as marriage, buying a house for the first time and having a child. I wish you the confidence and fortitude to prevail through the new responsibilities facing you at this time.
I dreamed that I desperately needed to see a dentist. I needed to have my teeth lightened and to wear a brace that kept my mouth closed. I have white and straight teeth what could this possibly mean?
Needing a dentist often refers to verbal communication and how you articulate your thoughts. Needing your teeth lightened can indicate the need to express yourself in a more positive manner and this imagery is supported by the symbolism of a mouth brace. "If you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything". This could be your subconscious providing a friendly warning to be more cognizant of what you say and how you say it.
