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.
