Ridiculous dream of falling teeth in a night

Hello from my lovely bed!

I must blog about this if not I felt something will go wrong. I’m very superstitious on particular thing, for example bad dream or people step on my book LOL. Because the tomo Shin told me that her dog passed away after she dreamt of him or her, and this is not the first she dreamt of that. How scary is that!

I don’t usually have a bad dream or even dream of anything; I sleep soundless every night except today or yesterday night. I dreamt of teeth falling out one by one. It seems like reality in the dream. Alright! Here goes the story.

In my dream, I was doing something like brace my teeth using a STONE to fix one of my wisdom tooth (yeap, is a very normal stone from roadside). And what I remember was I put some cottons and stones in my mouth and I think I fall asleep or doing something else (what I mean is I put it very long in my tooth to straighten my teeth). The first part of this dream was ridiculous, putting stone in my wisdom tooth in order to straighten my teeth. If this works, none of us will visit the dentist anymore.

Anyway, I stuck the stone in my mouth for a long time, and the moment I took out from my mouth, I look at the mirror, and all my teeth ruined. One of my tooth fall out and it looks like a tiger teeth, very sharp and long. Just like this 

The second part of this dream was still ridiculous, how can I have this long and very sharp tooth in my mouth. I’m neither a tiger nor lion!  However, I was quite interested with this tooth in my dream and cried for a moment because I lost my long and very sharp tooth. I have the ugliest teeth in the world of dream. When the tiger teeth fall off, I found a crooked tooth beneath it. It was a weird and ugliest tooth ever seen. I was so shock, and cried for help. What I remember was I was crying for help, and the moment I saw my crooked tooth I cried for momi.

After crying for losing a tooth, the whole bunch of teeth fall off just a second, and it was just like fake teeth dropping. Can you imagine my teeth just fall out like a fake teeth?
It falls out just like this!

I was really stun at this moment, and don’t know what should I do in order to fix the whole thing on. I tried few times just to fix it, and I remember momi was laughing at me.

“My teeth fall out!!! Momi!!! What should I do??? How???”  say dreadfully.

I’m seriously panic, and my friends always said I’ll be very panic if something just went wrong. Yeap! Is that kind panic that make me wanted to cry yet I can’t cry out loud (Why I can’t cry in my dream?). Still, I think is ridiculous! Lost the entire teeth just like fake teeth, how this possible happened in real life? I’m wondering.

I told myself this is just a dream in the dream world, and force myself to wake up for that moment. Weird! How can I possible know that was a dream instead of reality, and I woke up myself up instead of others. How weird is that!

The moment I woke up for that dream, I checked my teeth, and they are still there steadily. Then I search Google “dreamt of tooth falling out”, and I was surprise that it really exist. And I started to read the consequences…

Here it is.. LOL

"My Teeth Are Falling"   
Dreams of falling teeth are the most common dreams that Dream Moods receives. The typical dream scenarios include having your teeth crumble in your hands, fall out one by one with just a light tap, grow crooked or start to rot. Such dreams are not only horrifying and shocking, but they often leave you with a lasting image of the dream. So what does it mean?

One theory is that dreams about your teeth reflect your anxieties about your appearance and how others perceive you. Your teeth help to convey an image of attractiveness and play an important role in the game of flirtation, whether it is flashing those pearly white, kissing or necking. Thus, such dreams may stem from a fear of rejection, sexual impotence or the consequences of getting old. To support this notion, a dream research found that women in menopause report to have frequent dreams about teeth. This points to teeth dreams as being related to getting older and/or feeling unattractive and less feminine. Teeth are an important feature to your attractiveness and how you are presented to others. Caring about how you look is natural and healthy.

Another rationalization for these falling teeth dreams may be rooted in your fear of being embarrassed or making a fool of yourself in some situation. These dreams are an over-exaggeration of your worries and anxieties. Perhaps you feel that you are unprepared for the task at hand. However, you will find that your worries are unfounded in most cases. Sometimes what plays out in your mind is far worse than what is reality.

Teeth are used to bite, tear, chew and gnaw. In this regard, teeth symbolize power. And the loss of teeth in your dream may be from a sense of powerlessness. Are you lacking power in some current situation? Perhaps you are having difficulties expressing yourself or getting your point across. You feel frustrated when your voice is not being heard. You may be experiencing feelings of inferiority and a lack of self-confidence in some situation or relationship in your life. This dream may be an indication that you need to be more assertive and believe in the importance of what you have to say.

Traditionally, it was thought that dreaming that you did not have teeth, represent malnutrition or poor diet. This notion may still be applicable to some dreamers.

Other Perspectives

A scriptural interpretation for bad or falling teeth indicates that you are putting your faith, trust, and beliefs in what man thinks, rather than in the word of God. The bible says that God speaks once, yea twice in a dream or a vision in order to hide pride from us, to keep us back from the pit, to open our ears (spiritually) and to instruct and correct us.

Many cultures, including the Hispanic and Greek cultures, believe that when you dream about loose, rotten, falling, or missing teeth, then it indicates that a family member or close friend is very sick or even near death.

According to the Chinese, there is a saying that your teeth will fall out if you are telling lies.

It has also been said that if you dream of your teeth falling out, then it symbolizes money. This is based on the old tooth fairy story. If you lose a tooth and leave it under the pillow, a tooth fairy would bring you money.

(Thank you to Brook who emailed us with the biblical significance of teeth dreams, to Vanessa who shared the Hispanic perspective and to Eleni who shared the Greek perspective. Anna contributed her mother's story about teeth and money).


So should I believe in what it stated there? I remembered when I'm young, momi usually told me that I will lost something or family will fall sick whenever I dreamt of falling teeth. And it does appeared in this statement. 

"Many cultures, including the Hispanic and Greek cultures, believe that when you dream about loose, rotten, falling, or missing teeth, then it indicates that a family member or close friend is very sick or even near death."

Tomo Shin told me that she dreamt of this before, and it frequently appeared in her dream years. She doesn't know what will going to happen but she still believe it is a weird dream.

Or I should believe in Chinese way..

"According to the Chinese, there is a saying that your teeth will fall out if you are telling lies."

The Chinese way is not as scary as others LOL! This theory will somehow common sense than the previous losing family members or having sick family members or close friends. Anyway, I don't wish to tell lies except white lies. 

Alright! As you guess!? What it can happened when you dreamt of falling teeth?

I choose the Chinese way as it is harmless and not-very-serious than others.
