You always know which is which. Even those who do not believe in good and evil are able to discern that some things are "good" and other things are "bad". Dreams also fall into these two categories.
Sometimes a dream, such as a dream about losing a tooth may seem bad when it is good. Remember that there is no set, predetermined destiny. This is true regardless of what your religious organization taught you. You have free will. A dream is a warning when it shows you, if nothing changes, what will happen.
Losing a tooth means a loss.
LOSING THREE TEETH EQUALS LOSING THREE BUSINESSES
When I had my first dream about losing teeth, I asked myself, "What does a tooth represent?" I reasoned that a tooth is used to chew your food. This feeds the body. So, I thought, a tooth represents a tool which brings something to you.
In my dream, I saw that I had three silver teeth, which I lost. Then, I heard a voice say, "But don't worry. You will receive a Gold tooth far superior to these three to replace what you lost." I never applied it to my life. A smart question is, "Where does this apply in my life? What can it be that I will lose?"
Later, I lost all three businesses I owned. So, the "Losing" part of losing teeth is easy to understand: it warns of loss. But, what does the tooth in your dream represent? Like I reasoned, you should also reason -- for yourself -- "What does a tooth mean to me?"
LOSING A PARENT
Working in my coffee shop in downtown Philadelphia, I taught a lot of dream recall techniques, shared my own dreams, and listened to many dreams from other people. That atmosphere really taught a lot about dream interpretation. We would guess about the meaning, but the real understanding always seems to come after the event actually transpires. Here is one event about a teeth falling out:
A young woman walked in one morning and asked me if I was "the person who knows about dreams." I said yes. She said she had a dream about losing her front tooth and asked my opinion. I thought to myself, "A front tooth is of major importance. This is most likely an important means of bringing something to herself." I asked about her job, boyfriend, school financing, and other important things. She all of those things were secure.
Then she said, "I am a twin. My sister is having the same dream." This saddened me, and I asked about her parents. She said her mother had been ill. I said I was very sorry, and added "This could mean that she will pass away. Perhaps you should prepare yourself." About a month later, she returned to tell me that her mother passed away about two weeks after she and her sister had the dreams.
So, above you have two fulfilled dreams of teething falling out in dreams. In my case, I lost three businesses, but am expecting one superior business to replace them. In the case of the young women, they received forewarning to prepare their hearts for the loss of their mother.
Symbolism of Teeth in the Bible
The Bible is another source of understanding of teeth meaning. In the book of Amos, chapter 4, God tells Amos, "I have given you cleanness of teeth." In context, it refers to the fact that the people have no food. So, clean teeth can represent teeth that have not chewed food in some time. Again, some creative thinking can reveal the meaning. "What do clean teeth mean in a dream? Why are teeth clean?"
In Psalm 58:6, King David prays for God to destroy his enemies, praying, "Break their teeth in their mouth." Here, teeth represent power, or strength. This makes sense. A man who cannot chew his food will become weak in body, and eventually become sickly. To break someone's teeth is to break their power and to reduce their capacity to renew their strength.
Teeth are a bone, and the Bible mentions strengthening bones, renewing bones and also breaking bones. In Ezekiel 30:24, "And I will strengthen the arms of the king of Babylon, and put my sword in his hand: but I will break Pharaoh's arms, and he shall groan before him with the groanings of a deadly wounded [man]." Here we see breaking bones to mean weakening and strengthening bones to mean gaining power. Notice that the king whose bones are strengthened also received a sword.
So, losing a tooth, or losing teeth in a dream represents a loss of something that "feeds" you or losing something important. The loss could be someone who feeds you love, as a parent.
Gaining a tooth, or strengthening bones means gaining in some way. It could mean a new ability, improvement in existing skills, or the introduction of an entirely new business or loved one. It could be something that establishes your power, as in a strong sword arm.
In each case, the meaning should apply to you. Do not disregard "gut" or revelatory understanding of the meaning.
