I Had A Dream About My Teeth Falling Out—What Does That Mean?

February 23, 2023

Dreams of teeth falling out, losing one’s teeth, teeth breaking or rotting can be a scary experience. If you’ve had these dreams more than once, you might start to wonder whether there’s a deeper meaning behind them. 

Interestingly enough, about 39 per cent of the population has this type of dream at least once in their lifetime. Although these dreams can cause you to raise concerns about your health, well-being or sleep quality, it’s important to note that it’s quite common and they likely don’t mean anything dangerous. 

Why Are You Having Teeth Dreams?

Research shows that teeth dreams may be more prevalent in people who:

  • Experience depression or anxiety
  • Have lower self-esteem
  • Are less satisfied with their lives
  • Feel they have less control over their lives

Consider speaking to a mental health professional if you’re having frequent dreams about your teeth and feel anxious about your life. When a person is unhappy with their lives, one of the first things that get neglected is their oral health due to poor dental hygiene. Talking to a psychologist or therapist can improve your mental well-being, and therefore, your ability to make healthy lifestyle choices. These days, getting in touch with therapists is a lot easier with the help of online therapy solutions like BetterHelp.
