Do People Actually Dream That Their Teeth Are Falling Out A Lot?

Last Updated on: 20th September 2018, 12:12 pm

I’m not sure how much you’ll learn from this 12 Common Dreams and What They Supposedly Mean article, but I’m posting it anyway because I have a question.

Is dreaming that your teeth are falling out really common? I’ve never had that one and I don’t think I’ve ever heard about it from anyone else, but yet here it is at number 2.

The experts greatly disagree on this one. Wallace views teeth as a symbol of power and confidence. This dream is supposedly a sign that something happened in the dreamer’s life that has caused him or her to lose confidence. According to Grant, teeth are a bad omen and represent a broken relationship. Lawrence has a Freudian answer to this dream. For women, she believes the dream is an example of wish-fulfillment—they want to become pregnant. For men, it is a desire for sexual stimulation.

Alrighty then.

Somebody? Anybody?

I got an email about this post that inspired another one, because I had no idea that people were unable to read in their dreams. It shocked me, because I’m positive I’ve had dreams in which I’ve read things. You can read that one here.

  1. Have already had 2 people on Twitter say yes, this is a thing people dream. One found out after the dream that 3 or 4 friends had also had it.

  2. My mom used to get that dream a lot. I just dream that my teeth are ugly. There was this one dream I had where a mirror could talk, and would say nice things about people…it just told me I had ugly teeth.
