Yes. I do. All the time. It's gotten to the point where my dream tries to trick me. I'll think (in the dream), "Oh, my teeth are falling out again! It must be a dream. No, wait, it's actually real this time." Then I'll wake up and my teeth are fine.

They're anxiety dreams. Big surprise there. ;)

Have a nice day,
Kelly :)

This is what the site I usually use to interpret my dreams say about this:

"My Teeth Are Falling"

Dreams that your teeth are falling out are the most common dreams we here at Dream Moods receive. Common dream scenarios include having your teeth crumble in your hands, fall out one by one with just a light tap, grow crooked or rot. Such dreams are not only horrifying and shocking, but often leaves the dreamer with a lasting image of the dream. So what does it mean?

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.

Another rationalization for these falling teeth dream may be rooted in your fear of being embarrassed or making a fool of yourself in some specific situation. These dreams are an over-exaggeration of your worries and anxiety.

Teeth are used to bite, tear, chew and gnaw. In this regard, teeth represent 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 is an indication that you need to be more assertive and believe in the value of your own opinion.

In the latest research, it has been shown that women in menopause have frequent dreams about teeth. This may be related to getting older and/or feeling unattractive and less feminine.

Traditionally, it was thought that dreaming that you did not have teeth, represent malnutrition which may be applicable to some dreamers.

Other Perspectives

A scriptural interpretation for bad or falling teeth indicate 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.

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.

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.

I have had this one.

I also have had one about being in the passenger seat (or back seat) in a car going out of control and not being able to reach the driver side.

I had that one for a long time off and on but havent had that one in a long time. Really these days there is no recurring dreams for me anymore.

I can positively say I've never had a dream about teeth. Does that make me weird?

My dreams are usually just too weird to describe in the English language, it would ruin the whole thing if I tried to give them a narrative.

if it were true about a correlation between appearance and teeth, I would think that more women would dream about than men. It's a guess though.

in my case, I always dream that my legs don't function whenever I have to run, and I always wake up before I reach my objectives in my dreams.

I've never dreamed about my teeth falling out, but I do have a couple of recurring dreams. One is where I'm trying to use the phone, but I keep dialing the wrong number, or I can't get the phone to work. The other is where I'm in this huge, abandoned building....I think it's a shopping mall. Everything is in shades of gray, the shops are empty, the show windows are broken, and I can't find the way out.

I have tornado dreams all the time. I usually wake up before it gets to me. I don't what it is about tornados. I'm terrified of them.
I'll have to describe for you how tornadoes form. I don't think you'd be so frightened of them after that. :)

I had a dream before where my teeth went crooked, like before I had braces. It wasn't reoccuring though.

I used to always have a dream though where I was late for my bus, and trying to run to catch it (but my feet wouldn't move). I also had a simillar dream where I was out in a really bad thunderstorm and couldn't get back inside for the same reason.

I have never had a dream about teeth.

However, I do have a recurring dream that I am on an infinite staircase and I want to reach the bottom. I keep running down the stairs, but the staircase being infinite, I never actually reach.

A new one that has started about a year ago is that in the morning when the alarm clock rings and I shut it off, I automatically start dreaming about a woman with a very appealing body, dressed in sexy bedclothes who climbs into bed with me. I can never see her face, but I can hear her voice, "It's fine, relax." She caresses me and I fall asleep in her arms. Result: I get late for work!!!

What do they mean ?
