I had many teeth falling dreams.

In general, things you see in a dream are meaningful. And sometimes they have universal meaning because human experiences are alike. But teeth falling is not one of those symbols.

Teeth falling is common because nerves under the teeth are proportionally dense, very sensitive, and really close to the brain. Any pressure or tension you get at your jaw or teeth is notible to the brain even when you are sleeping. Close your eyes for a moment and tally the sensations you feel from your body. Do you distinctly feel tension near your teeth or jaw? When you are asleep, sensation from other parts of the body are blocked by sleep paralysis. But the sensations from the jaw are not completely gone.

The primary cause of teeth falling in dreams is neurological. It has no more meaning than your brain reflecting those sensation in a dream, especially when you sleep face down, like what I do many times.

And once they start falling they don't stop. It dominos because it is caused by a real stimulus. The more you are aware of it, the more you feel it in the dream. The only time it stopped was when a dream character stopped it for me.

Dreaming of losing my teeth always means that I feel lost with low self-esteem. Example: I failed an exam and that night I dreamt that my teeth began to crack and just fell apart on my hands.

So for me, it always represents my self-esteem.

Once I lost ALL my teeth, they just fell off.

I lost my front-teeth also some years ago...But they didn't want to go! They stuck in the flesh and I couldn't get them out, well they were hanging out of my mouth, but off!!

I lost my teeth in a fight...ONE punch in the face, only lost one tooth, though. The others...well, they somehow disappeared!!

grin <--- Let them be like THIS, oh dear sub-consciousness!!

man I hate those dreams...I usually have about two of them a year where I am looking in the mirror and to my horror one or both of my front teeth are lose. If I wiggle them they fall out usually in large numbers and when I look back into the mirror I am missing ALOT of teeth. Every time I have one of those dreams it scares the crap out of me because I keep my teeth meticuliously clean and as white as possible. grin

I never had losing teeth dream.
Maybe because I never had problem with my teeth IRL.

Never had a dream about losing my teeth. Strange because I'm sure I clench or grind mine at night sometimes as I awake with a sore jaw. Maybe I'll have one tonight now that we've been writing about it wink

last night i was in a dream and i was playing with one of my front teeth. it was loose. like a baby tooth about to fall out. i got very scared and woke up from the dream.

this has happened a couple of times and it scares me everytime because i think its real life and one of my front teeth are about to fall out.
