Dreams About Teeth

Dreams that our teeth are falling out are one of the most common dreams. Such dreams are not only horrifying and shocking, but often leave us with a lasting image of the dream.

One theory says that dreams about our teeth reflect our anxiety about our appearance and how others perceive us. Another rationalization for these falling teeth dream may be rooted in our fear of being embarrassed or making a fool of ourselves in some specific situation. These dreams are an over-exaggeration of our worries and anxiety.

The loss of teeth in our dream may be from a sense of powerlessness when we are having difficulties expressing ourselves or getting our point across. We feel frustrated when our voice is not being heard. This dream is an indication that we need to be more assertive and believe in the value of our own opinion.

hi, my neighbor had this dream about an albino rattle snake and her husband had the same dream. They found the snake in their backyard as she was trying to run from it, her husband tried to kill it, of course that was not accomplished.We have read several books about dreams and nothing really that could help us with this one. Everyone's been pondering. Got any ideas?Thanks

I do not think that I am posting this in the right place, but I am having a hard time finding where to place my dream.
First, let me say that I am a dreamer and usually my dreams mean something...and I have not learned to connect them until after. I come from a family of dreamers...we have some type of spiritual connection (haven't learned how to channel it yet)
well the reason for this message is because I had the wierdest dream last night and it has been weighing on me.
I do not remember all of the dream I do know that my little brother was in the dream and I think we were at someone's house waiting for my mother to come home (this part is really unclear because I do not totally remember it). Well what I am able to remember is the troubling part... I remember looking into the bathroom mirror and I had several dry skin patches on my face and then I stuck my tongue out and that too was dry. Like fish scale like, I then went and started to pull the dry skin off of my tongue and it was like fish scales and flaky. Please explain to me what this may mean.

Anonymous, your dream signifies the feelings about personal failings or some sense of not being as good or acceptable as other people; a feeling that other people see you as unattractive or can see failings in you; it could also signifies shyness; difficulties about facing or being in the company of people. Although bizarre, your dream simply means you are about to change your old way of life and old attitudes.

Both my family and my wife's family have had the same interpretation of TEETH dreams since they can remember.

They dream of their teeth or someone else's teeth FALLING OUT of their mouths. It's a horrible sight, feeling, emotion.

Every time my family or my wife's family dreams this, someone very close to the family DIES within 2 weeks maximum.

Have you ever heard of this happening with other people? Or is this unique with both of my immediate families?

Thanks! :)
