What does it mean if you dream that your teeth falling out?

Dreaming about your teeth falling out is a common dreams subject associated directly with your self image. It conveys feelings of intense insecurity and a loss of personal power.

For instance, years ago I had a really vivid dream about beginning to brush my teeth when they all started falling out into the sink and I felt completely helpless. Panic took a hold of me to the point where it woke me up.

In waking life, I had just started a new job that was very demanding and I had a ‘sinking’ feeling that I didn’t have the adequate ability to keep up with it. I felt powerless for several months until I began to master the work. The dream I had released all these feelings that I was keeping at bay to keep myself from falling apart at work.

If you have a similar dream, just think about what’s going on in your life that is making you feel powerless. Sometimes, just being aware of how you feel about something starts a healing process to help you gain confidence.
