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.
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.
What does it mean when you dream about losing your teeth?
Some say death... some say it has something to do with the very last thing you thought about as you went to bed.
Depends on how much you're into dreams I guess?
But considering the options... I would just ignore the dream books and go with latent memory reflex. You'll actually survive~

Reply:I also heard that dreams of loosing teeth have to do with financial worries. It just means you are worried about money.
Reply:For me, it meant that I was grinding my teeth at night. This is serious - not only did I wear down the enamel before I figured it out, but I also moved my top teeth so there is a space between them now. I do come from kind of a hillbilly background, but didn't necessarily want to celebrate my heritage in this manner. See your dentist - after I got my mouth guard I stopped having the dreams and I'd had them for years.
Reply:I agree with the first part of what the first answerer said (about dreams of losing teeth being connected with your perceptions of your appearence). My evidence is anecdotal, but I recall once when I was a teenager having a dream that I looked in the mirror and my teeth were falling out. In real life, what was going on with me at the time? My mom had given me this reeeeeally bad Willie Ames perm and I was very self conscious of how it looked and wanted to have it straightened out but she wouldn't let me.
Reply:any dream dealing with the loss of your teeth indicates you are going through a period of sexual frustration
