Does anybody else ever dream that their teeth are falling out/crumbling?
I've dreamt this a few times recently. It's a bit weird, and not very nice. A little investigation, reveals some contrasting beliefs
"In the Greek culture, when you dream about loose, rotten, or missing teeth, 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 your are telling lies"
So neither of those are very nice
"One theory is that dreams about your teeth reflect your anxiety about your appearance and how others perceive you. Sadly, we live in a world where good looks are valued highly and your teeth play an important role in conveying that image. Teeth are used in the game of flirtations, whether it be a dazzling and gleaming smile or affectionate necking. These dreams may stem from a fear of your sexual impotence or the consequences of getting old. Teeth are an important feature of our attractiveness and presentation to others. Everybody worries about how they appear to others. Caring about our appearance is natural and healthy"
So according to that I'm vain. Or impotent. Great. So I'm none the wiser, basically. Apparently it's quite a common dream though, but I swear I'm having it more regularly now than ever before
My friend Emma used to have a book of dream meanings. It was actually really, really interesting. I'd recommend getting one to anyone, even if you don't actually believe any of it
