Have you ever had a dream in which your teeth fall out? Dreams in which the dreamer loses his or her teeth are fairly common. But don’t worry–it’s not a sign that you have a cavity or need to floss more. Dream analysts have proposed several interpretations of tooth-loss dreams. Here are a few:
- Fear of aging. Aging is often characterized by tooth loss, so people often have these dreams when they become anxious about losing grip on their youth.
- Anxiety about your appearance. Often, your smile is the first thing people see when they meet you (which is why it’s important to keep it clean and healthy). Your social anxieties may be manifesting themselves in your dreams about your teeth falling out.
- Embarrassment. In your tooth-loss dreams, are you around a crowd of people? If so, your dream may reflect a fear of being embarrassed. Especially if you’re facing a difficult task or a new, unfamiliar situation, you may have more dreams about teeth falling out.
