Teeth falling out dreams or losing (or the fear of losing) one's teeth in a dream reflects concerns about one's physical and social appearances, and effectiveness in a competitive environment. If you think about it, your pearly whites are a big part of your smile, and your smile is a big part of your attractiveness and appearance. A smile can be an indication to a potential mate to continue his or her seduction. A smile lets other people know whether you're happy or sad. Is it any surprise then that dreams about losing, crooked, loose, cracked, chipped, rotting, abnormal, discolored or unsightly teeth, retainer/braces - losing your smile - usually come when you're not feeling attractive or desirable? Maybe your lover just broke up with you. Or maybe you're concerned about those extra pounds you've been gaining recently. Did you say something stupid yesterday in the business meeting? All these events can wipe the smile off your face in a dream, usually accompanied by several missing teeth. To start wearing your smile again, think about steps you can take to make you feel good about yourself. Once you solve this riddle, you'll be smiling again in no time.

If your teeth fall out in a dream when you are eating food, it suggests that a food-related issue is the cause, such as recent weight gain or being overweight. That dream is a sign that you want to lose weight and start an exercise or diet program.  If your teeth fall out while you are talking, you may be nervous or embarrassed about what you said recently.  You are concerned that it didn't make you look good or make a good impression.  If your teeth fall out when you are looking in the mirror, the dream is letting you know that it's about your physical appearance.  

If someone knocks your teeth out in a dream, it reflects your feeling that you have suffered an attack that will make you look bad. If you knocked out your teeth, it reflects concerns that you accidentally did or said something that made you look bad. If there's blood on your teeth when they fall out, it lets you know that your concerns about your appearance (physically or socially) are causing you pain, emotionally.  Decaying teeth are associated with concerns about health issues, including getting old.  If you have rows of teeth in a dream (like a shark), it symbolizes your readiness to "bite into" your opponent, most often in a competitive environment, such as work. If someone (other than a dentist) tries or succeeds in pulling your teeth out in a dream, try to identify who would like to make you look bad to others. If you pull your own teeth out in a dream, it reflects your feeling that you deliberately did or said something recently to make yourself look bad to others.  If someone makes fun of your teeth in a dream, it could reflect a literal concern about your teeth or it could reflect the same concerns of a teeth falling out dream.

If your teeth grow back in a dream, it's a positive sign, reflecting better feelings about yourself, perhaps due to exercise or progress in your diet... the "new" you.

Occasionally, teeth falling out can reflect literal concerns about dental conditions or procedures.
