teeth

I keep having dreams where my teeth are about to fall out - either one or all of them. And usually no one is willing to help. I've had these dreams for several years already. They are very disturbing

Re: teeth

Joa,
Dreams about teeth falling out are common. Losing teeth may symbolize a feeling of - or fear of - getting older or impotent or losing sexual attractiveness. Other possibilities you may want to consider are:

1Losing teeth may represent an identity crisis, ugly gossip or talking too much

2 Teeth often represent decisions, therefore problems with teeth may represent long-standing indecisiveness or an inability to assimilate, analyze or make decisions about incoming data

3 "Teeth" in the dream world can be an archetypal image of the dreamer's sense of confidence and competence in the waking world. Dreaming that there is something amiss with my teeth usually points to insecurities about my ability to "get my teeth into it," or maybe I've "bitten off more than I can chew." Ironically, the very fact that you remember such a dream is a reliable indicator that the you, the dreamer, can deal creatively and transformatively with the problems that life presents. If this were not the case, you would not even have remembered the dream. All dreams (even nightmares!) come in the service of health and wholeness, and the dream wants to convey to the waking mind those conditions that are negatives to balance and wholeness.

Also look at the statment in the dream, 'and usually no one is willing to help' and compare it to the possibilities above. This statement alone may have meaning somewhere in your life that gives clues to the meaning of loosing your teeth.
