A dream about your teeth falling out is a common dream symbol, often related to feelings of powerlessness, loss, or fear of aging. But as you know, a dream seldom has such a simple interpretation.

It may indicate anxiety about your appearance or how others perceive you.

Alternatively, seeing someone else's teeth in a dream can symbolize your perceptions of that person. If their teeth are healthy, it may be a representation of your admiration for them. If their teeth are rotten or missing, it could reflect your negative views about them or concerns about their health.

Dreaming of one's teeth falling out, in the Freudian perspective, can be interpreted as a manifestation of castration anxiety, a fundamental fear of loss, or a symbol of impotence.

This can be a multi-faceted dream symbol though — It might also signify a transition phase, reflecting the natural process of growth from childhood to adulthood, akin to losing baby teeth. Conversely, observing another's teeth in a dream can be a projection of your own insecurities or judgments. If the teeth are in good condition, it may mirror your positive self-image or aspirations. If they are in poor condition, it could symbolize your internalized self-doubt or critical perceptions about others.0

Dreaming of your teeth falling out can be a spiritual message about personal transformation and growth. It may symbolize the shedding of old habits or attitudes, making way for new perspectives. This dream can also be a call to communicate more authentically, as teeth are tools of expression. Seeing someone else's teeth, by contrast, can be a reflection of your spiritual connection with that person. If their teeth are healthy, it may symbolize a strong, positive bond. If their teeth are in poor condition, it could indicate a need for healing or forgiveness in your relationship with them.
