  • Ever dreamt you were losing your teeth?

    Last night I dreamt I was losing my teeth (a serious problem if you are a shark) so I decided to seek help. As Joseph was not around to oblige I turned to the internet. This is what I found:

    Many of us have been the victim of tooth-lose dreams and have carried this concern into the morning.
    Here's a quote: "Tooth dreams are open to many interpretations and have been handled successfully by very few of the modern dream interpreters."

    This was written in the 2nd Century by the ancient interpreter, Artemidorus. Even the Vedas and texts 2000 years BC talk about tooth dreams. So you can see there is a long history of confusion. Freud and Jung explored the possibilities of tooth loss and hysteria, but modern dream interpreters take a different approach that is more direct.

    What, we can ask ourselves, do teeth do? They hold, cut, grasp and generally are the first way we had to do these things. But then we lost our first set, just as we were gaining in self-control and power. And yet, shortly thereafter, a new and larger world and set of teeth appear!

    And so, if I have a tooth lose dream, I can ask myself:

    1. What parts of my world and life are slipping away?
    2. What new larger world will this lead me too?


    Lose a tooth, gain a world!


    What strange dream experiences have you had and have you ever sought help to interpret them?

      I hated those falling in air dreams! I always used to jerk awake just before I landed.

      I heard something else about losing teeth in dreams: something to do with wanting to get pregnant, or something about the urge to start a family....

                One time a giant cockroach ate me, but no..no dreams about losing my teeth.

                  Hang on...I can interpret that dream for you:

                  Giant cockroach = a billion dollar worth franchise located in the Big Apple

                  Being eaten = you feel stifled and trapped. You should get out.

                  I'm not getting the full picture on this one, but I suspect it could signify that you need to find another sports team to support perhaps?

                  I look into my crystal ball and see a red sock.......hmm...interesting.

                        Digging this up again, I dreamt last night that I was losing teeth. Really weird. It was just me walking around Camden with my dad and all of a sudden, two of my teeth come out. One of them was a normal molar (with a hole in it for some reason). The other seemed like an amalgamation between my wisdom tooth (which is coming through) and my normal tooth. Weird.

                        I've been thinking a lot about the future recently, about post-Uni with my girlfriend, living together, getting married and stuff. Call me young and mad...but eh, romance isn't dead. Alternatively, I just did badly (by my standards) in chemistry a month away from the exams. So that might be it. And it's my 18th tomorrow, so I may be afraid of getting older. Interesting links...

                        I have the WEIRDEST dreams though. I used to have dreams about being chased by someone who wanted to kill me the whole time. They stopped when I started my relationship with Becky, so I guess that's linked. Now my dreams are just trippy weird. Tuna fishing in the Thames surrounded by sharks? WTF is that about?

                          I dream that I have vampire teeth all the time (I'm serious)....it's pretty cool.

                              I think that may be why I occassionally have that dream too. I have a tooth that needs work on.

                              I had a lot of work done on my teeth in 2004 - cost me £2000!

                              I haven't been back since. A couple of weeks ago, I found a more reasonably priced dentist, but the waiting list is huge. It will be August at least before I get to see him. Hopefully my teeth won't fall out before then - a toothless shark would be good for nothing!
