I frequently have a recurring dream of me losing my tooth/teeth. it's often the ones on the top and in my dream, I feel it loose, and suddenly I just pop it out. I can taste the small amounts of blood on my gums but for the most part, there's no pain and I am forever minus one tooth. Last night was a record with me losing four of my front teeth for seemingly no reason.

 

Basic dream analysis ties this with stress; losing teeth is attributed to being stressed in your life.

 

I was discussing this with my friends who says she never has dreams about losing teeth. However, she does have recurring dreams about her getting vocal nodules; as a performance voice major, vocal nodes would ruin her singing career as well as her life. I discussed with another friend who said that he often dreams of his guitar falling apart in his handswhether on stage or just while he's at home holding it (I apparently have a lot of music majors as friends).

 

I don't particularly care about my teeth. Hell, I haven't gone to the dentist in over 3 years and never had braces as a child. But I do maintain my teeth rather well with flossing and brushing. Apparently I value my teeth a lot.

Do you have any recurring dreams that you can potentially attribute to stress? yes I have dreams where my family and friends die, but those are so rare that I can't really attribute that to anything. I have teeth losing dreams probably 8-10 times a month. Which is pretty frequent. Apparently I'm stressed a lot.

I don't really have recurring dreams anymore. I used to, as a child - my prodigious brain came up with some genuinely terrifying experiences that really don't translate into text :p

I have various teeth losing dreams.. sometimes they crumble and i can feel it in my dreams and creeps me out..

 

I believe the other night I had a dream that like I lost 4 random molars like it was no big deal, just felt loose and pulled them out and went on in my dream.

 

I don't think I've been overly stressed, but who know, the meds I'm on cause me to have fucked up dreams anyways.

Like Rocket, I've dreamt that my teeth almost like.. crumbled. 
They were so soft just biting down caused them to crack and fall apart and bleed. It was horrible and terrifying for me.

I've also had dreams about going blind.

that i've never experienced. I always dream that my teeth start to wiggle, not even while I'm eating, I just feel them be loose. I go to a mirror (there's always one there), I inspect it and then pull it out super easily. I then poke my tongue at the gum and can taste blood but very very small amounts is actually present.

 

I have these dreams so often I often realize it's a dream and "wake up" but I actually wake up into another dream. Where I continue to lose teeth. Teethception.

I had a friend where that happened too. He said that he can't explain the terror in his dreams but it was so real and vivid. They would occur when he was extremely depressed after he entered adulthood apparently.

These "teeth falling out" dreams are really common -- I hear it a lot from friends, but I've never experienced it...

 

I don't really dream much at all anymore.

Didn't know that it was common. I remember dreaming about losing teeth maybe once or twice. Most of my nightmares are more often about hiding/running away from people and things that want to kill me. D:

The only recurring dream I have is when the release mechanism failed during skydiving.

 

But I think it's mostly trauma than stress because when I skydived, the parachute professional I rode in tandem with was an asshole and acted panicky as if the parachute was legit broken.

My one friend has a recurring nightmare that she's being tortured but JUST WON'T DIE. Like unlike in my dreams where if I die I wake up, she just doesn't die. She just keeps surviving through the torture and keeps getting tortured. sounds awful.

That's so not funny

As a child, I had a recurring dream of being on a picnic with my family, then a bull coming up and trying to gore us, and then I never knew if we died or not cause I always woke up.

I have these dreams so often I often realize it's a dream and "wake up" but I actually wake up into another dream. 

I have this happen all the time its very annoying. Most of my dreams are pretty realist, for example last month I had a dream where I woke up proceeded to get completely ready for the day (shower, eat, etc.) only to wake up in my bed to have to do it again.

I used to have recurring dreams about losing my teeth too. I rarely have typical nightmares about being chased, falling, dying, etc. so the dreams about losing my teeth always felt very scary and real to me. The idea of feeling your teeth loosen and fall out, and not being able to do anything to stop it is unsettling. Losing your adult teeth is so permanent. Stress definitely seems like a logical explanation, but I'm guessing vanity probably plays a part as well.

I don't really have the same recurring dream, but there's always something similar in each of them: the presence of a lost friend. I'll be doing something different in each dream, but it's always with one or two people that I'm no longer friends with. I tend to awaken to a feeling of emptiness afterwards.

this happens way to frequently.. especially in the 9 minutes between when i hit snooze and my alarm goes off again.

I have these quite often.. it's a huge fear for me since I have terrible teeth and bad genetics.

The last time I went to the dentist he had to pull a tooth that was too far gone to repair.. I cried like an idiot because of my nightmares. :(

I'm not really sure if teeth dreams are related to stress or not!! I've had a load of teeth-related dreams over the past I don't know, five years? Where they would come out of my mouth/gums in kinda gross ways (like one where I puked up a huge amount of teeth and blood, one where I was on a train and this kid twisted my lower canine teeth to the point where they came out and god it hurt so bad, and another one where I was flossing and my lower teeth started pushing themselves back into my mouth and falling out and my gums bled loads). I've had most of them at times where I wasn't stressed out at all and nearly everything in my life was fine :0 Maybe it depends on the person?

 

Also I've had a lot of dreams where I'd be on or around trains/train stations/aircraft/airports and I remember looking it up on some interpretation sites, and they just gave me some 2deep4u bullshit hahaha.... I think its just because I like traveling a lot :p <3

I think I've actually had a dream about my teeth falling out before.

 

As for recurring dreams, I know I do, but I can't actually remember what they are unless I just had one. I know there's been a tornado one a few times but not recently. 

 

However, the other night I had a very strange dream. I was in class and someone asked me for a piece of paper. Usually, my notebooks never fill up to the last page so I just went to the back to rip one out AND MY NOTEBOOK WAS FULL. I couldn't give them paper. What does it mean?! ... And why did I dream about paper?

This happens to me except I dream of my dead grandma, and in the dream she is alive but I know she shouldn't be there. I don't have the heart to tell anyone that she's actually dead, but the entire time I'm thinking, "It doesn't matter what she says, at the end of this, she will be dead". Oddly, in the dream I find myself carrying her piggyback, and she's always wearing the paper thin moo-moo/nightgown and house slippers she wore in life.

I didn't just make that up to make Boggart laugh, either. It's true. I often feel empty upon waking. Not sad or anything. Just hollow. Like, "I knew it all along."

I always dream my teeth crumble or fall out, so much that it doesn't even bother me anymore. My sister used to tell me that she thought I was eating chips in bed, I'd be grinding my teeth so bad. That's why I have Tiny Chiclet teeth. I've ground them down to nothing.
