Dreams Dreaming Dream Analysis Dream

As odd as it may sound, many people dream of their teeth or hair falling out. In fact, dreaming of your teeth falling out is one of the top five most common dreams. What exactly do these types of dreams mean? There are a few interpretations but often, the interpretation for either dream is surprisingly similar.

Dreams of Teeth Falling Out
If you have a dream that your teeth are falling out, do not take it literally. You do not need to speed dial your dentist. When you dream your teeth are falling out, it can mean that you have been talking too much lately. Maybe you have been gossiping more than usual, maybe you have said the wrong thing to someone, or maybe you have been speaking without thinking first. This dream can tell you that you have been being too blunt with your speech. It may mean you have subconsciously realised that you said something that you wish you had not said. Look back at things you have said to people lately and see if there is really any one thing you said that seems inappropriate or mean. Did you say something improper at work or did you start an argument with your partner? Maybe you said something you regret to your child. Making amends for these statements can help ease your mind and might stop this dream, which can often be reoccurring.

If you cannot think of anything you have said that you regret, there may be another meaning to your dreams. Sometimes when we dream of our teeth falling out, we are actually concerned about our physical appearance. Think of how important your smile is to your looks. If you dream your teeth are falling out, you may actually be upset with some other aspect of your physical appearance and feel that you are unattractive. This is especially true if you dream you are looking into a mirror when you notice your teeth are falling out. As we age, many of us become worried about wrinkles and grey hair, but remember to tell yourself that you are still beautiful – not matter how old you are!

Dreams of Hair Falling Out
Just as with the dream of losing your teeth, you may also be holding a mirror in your dream when you notice your hair is falling out. When you dream your hair is falling out, you may actually be concerned about the decline in your sex appeal or attractiveness. You may be worried about getting older and be preoccupied with your appearance and the aging effects.

Dreaming of losing your hair may also mean that you fear you are losing your strength, just as Samson did. After all, since before the time of Samson, people have viewed having hair as a sign of youth and virility. This is confirmed by all the ads on television for products that help your hair growth.

If you have a dream that you are losing your teeth or hair, you may want to re-examine how you feel about yourself. Concentrate on your good points and try not to focus on things you cannot change that come with age. Why not investigate more dreams involving parts of the body here?

I dreamed that I found a gym with an indoor pool and want to swim, but I do not have goggles.Very nice and friendly staff let me go through a lot of strange looking goggles .I waste a lot of time and finally find one, but then I can’t find my purse.

My husband passed away August 15, 2018. The day after my birthday. I have reoccurring dreams that He is cheating.I could set a clock by that man.There is no way he ever cheated nor did I want to in 26 years we were together.These dreams are very vivid and I am stabbing people women killing them I did not know I was jealous in that way.I never had to be .Also just before I woke up this morning I was dreaming that I was walking into the house and there was a note on the door that said do not disturb. I asked my kids if their dad Had put that there and they said yes. Two seconds later my phone went off with a text message and my ringtone is the doorbell scared the crap out of me.

I had a dream last night I was out with a few friends enjoying Florida’s night life. Upon going into my car and heading home I saw a friend of mine. Once I got home after enjoying my night with friends. The next few days in my dream. I started lossing my teeth. Just my canines then all of them. As that progressed I continued to shower daily and normally you’ll brush your hair and hair will come out. I would brush my hair and hair extensions in the shower and see so much hair falling out. So one of those I’m not going to let my hair dry naturally day I blow dry my hair and so much hair is falling out that as I’m blowing drying the back of my hair a patch of hair falls out leaving a whole of missing hair. I’m not sure what this all means

DreameyDavid - Your Question:
I dreamed of going to a beautiful house but once I am inside I see all the bathtubs, sinks, pools have been left running and it scares me so much. As if a psyco mind wants it to be this way and it makes me panic.Thanks for your help

Our Response:
It sounds as though you may be seeing a lot of waste around you. It is difficult to analyse a dream without knowing where the subconscious thought may stem from. So, in your life it may seem that something/someone is escaping you, running away from you, is wasteful or it comes from a part of your life that you feel you can't control. Whatever it is in your life, it is giving the illusion of something that it is not. For instance, it could be a business that shows a perfect front but is haemorrhaging money.

@Tonymommie - that doesn't sound like a nice dream. I think 'loss' is the key word here. Teeth are supposed to represent loss of friends, I don't know what hair means - you'd have to work it out alongside what is currently going on in your life. Perhaps you are worried about losing your looks, like it says. It sounds like massive changes may be happening for you though and you feel a bit insecure.

I had a dream all my teeth were falling out along with the gums and jaw. Then i started losing my hair and the back of my head. Basically like i was decaying. What in the world could that mean?

Last night I had a dream that some how I noticed bold spots on my head and when I put my hair down I looked normal but then as I was playing with my hair which I normally do when I'm concentrating huge chunks would just fall into my hand. Everyone told me I looked fine but I could see it was all gone. I didn't feel fine, I felt scared.
