Teeth Are Falling!"
of falling or crumbling teeth are the most common dreams that Dream Moods receives. The
typical dream scenarios include having your teeth crumble in your hands, fall
out one by one with just a light tap, grow crooked or start to rot. Such dreams
are not only horrifying and shocking, but they often leave you with a lasting
image throughout the day. So what does it mean?
teeth relates to vanity:
One theory is that dreams about your teeth reflect your anxieties about your
appearance and how others perceive you. Your teeth help to convey an image of
attractiveness and play an important role in the game of flirtation, whether it
is flashing those pearly whites, kissing or necking. Thus, such dreams may stem
from a fear of rejection, feeling unattractive, feeling sexually undesirable or
from growing older.
To support this notion, a dream research found that women in menopause reported
a higher frequency of dreams about their teeth. So there seems to be a
correlation with getting older and having more teeth dreams.

important feature to your attractiveness and how you are presented to others.
Caring about how you look is a natural concern.
