God Speaks through Dreaming of Teeth

   Bookmark and Share

One of the most common dreams people have are about teeth, which actually are significant. God is speaking to us through these dreams.

I have interpreted thousands and thousands of dreams and one of the most common dreams people ask me about is teeth. Let me explain what this common dream means.


This type of dream reveals you are in need of direction. Teeth chew food and make it useful for the body. Symbolically, teeth chew the word or teaching of God so it can be digested and made useful through application. Chewing or thinking about something brings deeper understanding. (You are “chewing on” this revelation even as you read.) That’s why teeth coming loose or falling out means you’re in need of direction, wisdom or advice.

Here are examples of various teeth dreams:

You bite into some food and your teeth break off. This indicates that there is something that you are having difficulty understanding at the moment.

You look in the mirror and suddenly your teeth are falling out. You are lacking wisdom in the area of your self-image or who you are and what you’re called to do.

Your incisor teeth come loose or fall out. These are also known as “eye teeth” and symbolically, loose incisors can indicate that you are lacking spiritual vision.

Your wisdom teeth come loose or fall out. Obviously, you’re lacking wisdom in some area of your life.

Your front teeth come out. This could indicate that you are too busy or “biting off more than you can chew.”


Now that you can understand what dreaming of teeth can mean, the thing that really matters is how you respond. God is trying to point out how to have a positive outcome. Responding in some way will make the dream come alive. In the case of these teeth dreams, pray and ask God to show you what He wants you to understand and pray for wisdom.

If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. James 1:5

Keep dreaming! It’s God speaking to you to help you on your life’s journey. Enjoy the ride!

    Dear dough,thanks a million my dream is when I dream about teeth falling out ,coming loose some one is getting ready to leave us. And sometimes the lord will wake me up with the scripture that I am suppose to minister on at the funeral all relatives .

    • Marie says:

      I understand what your saying and have had dreams with my teeth falling out. In this dream it was as if I woke up because i could feel and hear me chewing on my whole teeth. I felt them and heard them like the sound of marbles i awoke because it was so loud. Please help me understand this.

    • eva says:

      I dreamed i was about 5 years old girl standing in that dress made out of flowers.. Someone pulled out those flowers one by one and i became naked. I was ashamed, Then magically i was dressed in the purple dress with golden strings on it. It was so beautiful. I was so amazed and happy. then another girl came up to me. then little prince a year or so younger came up to me.. I was speechless…. The most amazing felling of joy came over me.. i woke up… When i woke up i understood that that prince was Jesus.. July 27 2015 Eva R P.S. If God leads you to interpretation of a dream please let me know. Thank you

      • Marie says:

        This is what I get from your dream. I see the dress made of flowers as the beauty that has developed in your spiritual life as you have walked with the Lord. The flowers pulled off to the point of being naked speaks of the pruning necessary for new growth. God has pruned you and the second dress represents even greater beauty that will grow in your life . The girls in your dream could represent servants who God uses in your life to help with the pruning. Don’t be ashamed when God uncovers or exposes things in your life that need to go. He has plans to bring greater beauty in you so rejoice.

        • Ada says:

          Wow. I could not figure out in my dream it’s painful and I’m clinching my teeth and my jar is hurting my teeth breaks . Kinda scary and weird. So I get up and pray half asleep. It’s not the first time. What do you think it means?

          • Rhonda says:

            This dream means that you are trying too hard in the flesh, striving, for what God has already provided. Your haw hurts,its your mouth, it also holds your teeth, which chew on Gods Word.
            Jesus wants to rest in Him, in His Identity for you, and just take in what He has already done.
            Read in Hebrews, especially chapter 5. Your promise comes by inheritance through receiving the blood of Jesus , not by striving.

      • Montrell says:

        I had vision an angel gave me a book from heaven so now anything people speak i say Wht i see the book in mysteries only i see it give me secret s of the heart i see bible pages word for word number by numbers the abilities of peophesies revelations word of wisdom words of knowledge whatsoever in the ❤ much i can tell u test the spirit to know he said unto me prophet many know who they are in flesh but not in Spirit the lord let me know i never been to school to speak thats education but i speak in Spirit and with power of his word in peace numbers12:6 amos 3:7 8 amos7:14 15 i pray your hearts shall rest with christ rest 2145866234 im very humble im just a messenger test the spirit to know it.i will only tell wht God speak nothing but prophecy the words of the book without it in my hands cause it in my spirit as open wide Jesus speak it the voice of one crying in the wildness jesus through the spirit of the the living water wisdom

          • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

            Teeth often mean wisdom and understanding. So if the teeth are good and strong, your wisdom is good and strong :).

  2. Crystal Arnold says:

    What does it mean if you pull out your eye teeth the one right under it and your front tooth then decide you try to put them bk

    • Daniel Chama says:

      Pulling thm out myb tht u are acting in a way that cozes u to lose spiritual vision, but put them back coz u realize where u’re going wrong

  3. Dee Copley says:

    Interestingly enough, the 21st letter “shin” in Paleo Hebrew is the picture of teeth and is known for exactly what you say here. Another meaning can also sometimes be “name”. (The hand sign also became known as the Vulcan greeting by Dr. Spock just in case you wanted to know.)

  4. Teri Ayala says:

    Speaking about teeth ,i had a dream,God was fixing mine..
    Since,im asking him to heal,my gums and give me fix,my teeth. .

  5. Melanie says:

    I had a dream about teeth. I was sitting beside the man I am in love with. I was trying kiss him but couldn’t; our teeth were in the way. I had to take my teeth out in order to kiss him. There was a blonde haired child, a girl of about ten to 12 years old, sitting beside us. I do not know her in real life. She had braces. I had to help her breath with a breathing machine. My mother was across the room laying down on a couch.

    What is your interpretation of this? Thanks!!

  6. Jane says:

    Doug, I had a dream about my teeth. That I lost my braces and when I did my bottom teeth went instantly right back to bring crooked but my top teeth moved into all different crooked positions. My two front teeth lifted up. (Lol) in the same place but up pointing out horizontally. I remember thinking how csn this happen?? Can teeth move this way? How can I close my mouth? How csn I eat? Lol them I woke up..

  7. Beverly Anne says:

    Thank you for this insight Doug. However, conversely, is the fact that one has never dreamed about teeth in any way mean that they are seeking and receiving God’s wisdom and are on target. No pride intended, just wondering.
    Thank you

    • Karen says:

      Elizabeth it sounds to me like your future is very bright and that God’s glory will glow from you! I see that you posted a while back, but I just now saw this page and am visiting because I have had a good tooth dream myself. God bless you.

  8. Tyler Lucas says:

    Hey Doug! Thanks for the Post. I have a teeth dream that is crazy and was definitely spiritual.

    I was chewing my teeth inside of my mouth, and they were falling out and I was chewing and gnawing them. It sounds frightening familiar to the ‘weeping and the gnashing of teeth’…. I was obviously bleeding and it was horribly disturbing. It had a texture similar to what you would expect…

    Please help.
    God Bless

  9. Dena says:

    Thanks for posting – I had a dream on June 24th involving teeth and was not sure of the meaning then…Voila! Your post! Now to respond…

  10. Sarah Lozano says:

    I have couple of those dreams specially when I was walking with people and when I face them my teeth fall out and I catched them with my right hand other times I keep it in my mouth!
    Thanks for share.

  11. G says:

    The other day I read your article about 2014.
    After 2014( I mean from 2015), the economical situation will get worsen?
    From when will the economical situation be changed?
    How did God tell you?

  12. Mander says:

    Amazing timing, Doug! I sense that your post is in response to so many more people having teeth dreams in this season – even I did last week for the first time!! It’s surely a time to seek wisdom, answers, revelation and hold onto God’s promises. The Lord has been saying to me “Think Outside The Box.” Thank you for your faithful service to the Lord and to his kingdom.

    • Sarah Mattapersad says:

      I dreamt top teeth fell I take in hands and show my sister I count 16 teeth no blood am worried but think world is ending so I must not worry

  15. Rhonda Odom says:

    Question – my 10 year old daughter drempt she was at the dentist – then said “I was not the patient – I was the tooth – I was cracked and being repaired” – we read the Holy Bible every night – started at “In the Beginning” – also she goes to a Christian school – I never ask anyone but God about dreams – but this one is really interesting – what are your thoughts?


    • Doug Addison says:

      Hi Rhonda,

      I really do wish I had time to interpret the thousands of dreams people send me. Honestly I am buried in them :O) but I did pour everything I possibly know on dreams into an online course that will help The Dream Crash Course. Take the Jump Start Course free. I also have a book Understand Your Dreams Now that may help. Go to my website http://dougaddison.com

      • Rhonda Odom says:

        Quite honestly Sir, with all due respect – I did not want interpretation – I never ask anyone by God about dreams – this one was exceptionally odd by a 10 year old – seemed quite interesting – just asked your thoughts, not interpretation – so I do apologize for wasting anyone’s time. Thank you

        • DJ says:

          Rhonda, I want to encourage you that Doug wasn’t saying you were wasting his time, He just can’t interpert everyone’s dreams because there aren’t enough hours in the day for him. I imagine its really not what God wants for him to do anyway, I believe Papa wants him to teach others how to hear and understand for themselves.
          I encourage you to sit up in Papa God’s lap and ask Him, I bet He’s just waiting to whisper it to you. 🙂 Its a great opportunity for you to teach your daughter to do the same thing. She is a part of the promise that our sons and daughters will dream dreams! Yahoo! So exciting for the both of you!

  16. Labitta says:

    Hi I had a dream that I was sitting and this tooth of mine was loose and really bothering me so I loosened it even more and eventually it came out.This tooth didn’t look like my other teeth it was really big and sort of ugly looking as I came out of the bathroom after rinsing my mouth I saw a faris wheel of an amusement park what could this mean……

  17. Sarah says:

    I need an answer if you could please guide me?
    Mt Dream! (i have seen that i was with the guy whom i am in love with and saw all me teeth a becoming loose and starting to shake and i felt a bit of pain as well and i got terrified but later they were alright and i was still with him) please i really need your view…does it has to do with that guy?

  18. Tanya says:

    I had a dream that I was wiggling my tooth with my hand and then woke up with my hand in my mouth. What does that mean do you know?

  20. Carter says:

    I had a dream a couple of days ago that my left, top, front tooth had an intense, painful pressure. When the pressure built up to the max, my tooth pops loudly, and cracks in half vertically. It will happen about 4 to 5 times during my dream. I hate it! It hurts so bad. What can it mean?

  21. Lizette Snyman says:

    Doug, I have a son of 16, and we have some dicipline and attitude problems with him. And I dreamed last night that we had to go to a nabouring town and a dr suggested that we repair all his teeth. I am not sure if it was pulling or fixing and repairing. But I knew that all his teeth would be fixed or replaced?
    We were camping out at this town waiting for him to come out of surgery or what ever was done to his teeth to make them new?

  22. Miriam says:

    Thank you so much for sharing this. I’ve had a few dreams about my teeth falling out and was quite worried of losing my teeth! That was until I had a dream of growing a new canine tooth. This happened around a time when I had started praying and reading the word more so that got me thinking into perhaps there was a deeper meaning and this just confirmed it. Again, thanks!

  23. Robbi says:

    I had a dream that I was in a bathroom and my teeth started falling out starting with the side front teeth. I touched it and it fell out. Then the one next to it crumbled partially and I had it in my mouth. I went to my mother and she was showering and said nothing but had this smirk on her face. I got upset because she was not doing anything. I told her I would find a place (I do not live with her). I then tried to call my dentist as I wanted to save the teeth and the assistant hung up on me. I called back and it just rang. By then my mouth was full of crumbing teeth and I was trying to find a computer to research what to do and save them. I then received a call from a little girl and she mentioned my name when I was younger and said she was trying to reach me. She could not understand me with all of the teeth in my mouth. She said she contacted me through LinkedIn. I then resolved that I was going to move out of the house near a new job. I don’t recall ever being in the house i was in. I woke up and checked my teeth—-the dream was so real.

  24. Chloe Anne says:

    In my dream my teeth were already out and i was laying in bed whilst someone was holding my head and putting my teeth back in my gums, this was very painful and when they went back in my gums they were falling out. If possible could you tell me the meaning to this 🙂

  25. Edgar says:

    Thank You so much, Doug!!! God spoke to me through you. Thanks for being a true believer unlike these many websites who supposedly interpret dreams as Christians. They never mention God at all. Thank you for revealing I don’t need a dentist appointment, I need The Word Of GOD!!!

  26. hephzibah says:

    Thank you so much I just had a dream that all my teeth came out I can feel them in my mouth as I was swooshing then I spit them all out and was very concerned …. But the night of that dream I had prayer and bible study at my house and certain ppl wasn’t there who usually operate in the gift of prophecy I felt so insecure about praying for others and speaking a word of knowledge over them . (the lord does use me to give a word of knowledge at times ) but this specific time I felt afraid and was praying hard in my heart for God to move lol and he did . the whole point is I need to stand firm in my identity . please pray for me thanks ..

    Can someone help me decifer my dream it was kind of the opposite I had my teeth fixed into a perfect smile I was so happy always wanted to have nice teeth ! And I’ve had dreams in the past where my teeth were falling out and I was embarresed but to have this dream ! Man it felt good to have my teeth fixed

  28. YoroKobi says:

    I would like to share something.

    A month ago, i had this dream that my front teeth are crooked and I panicked because in real life, i just got my braces off. In my dream, I tried to look at the mirror again and it is still getting more crooked. Is it significant?

  29. Dolly says:

    I need to know the meaning of my dream. It’s about that I was sleeping and grinded my tooth so hard that I loss my front tooth and a little bloody.

    Doug, I had a dream that my freind and I were in a store with her kids both girls one was looking for something to tighten her braces with and the other I was carrying on my back she was about 2 yrs old. I remember feeling like I had loved this child and we knew each other well. She was telling me a story about something horrible happening to her in Kentucky , I live in Utah and figure we were home. When this little girl said I don’t know why this happened she said I pray and.. . .right then in my sub consiounce or what have you I stopped and asked myself how I had come up with that I’m not a re!igious person but am struggling with it right now because of all the things going on in the U.S. anyways I guess I fell back into my dream this little girl got up off my lap and I asked her too show me her teeth she had five rows of teeth on bottom they were fairly white and in neat rows and she went down the stairs we were sitting on. What does this !mean ? Also the friend I was dreaming about had been my best friend up intell a few years ago I found out this morning my son stayed the night there last night could this have anything to do with it. What’s my message here?

  34. Dana says:

    And also when I asked my friend what she was going to do to have her daughters teeth fixed she said she’s not she can’t afford it she’s just hopping no one will notice them. I asked her how is she going to brush her teeth and that’s where it ended

  35. Giselle says:

    My dream was me rearranging my room, when I was done I laid down and was enjoying the view and all of a sudden my tooth started to hurt . It seemed like my wisdom tooth or one next to it . I walked to my mirror and seen my tooth bleeding I pulled on the tooth and it was loose . Like almost ready to fall but it needs more time . Then I woke up .

  36. Maria Rosario says:

    Had a dream that I was brushing my teeth. I saw the collor white on th etoothpaste , teeth and foam.

    What does this mean?


  37. A says:

    Hi doug! This is long but i really hope you’ll find time reading this…
    These dreams happened in one night. First, i dreamed of getting an arranged marriage with a Muslim which i didn’t like. I was looking for my deceased granfather and wondered if if he was alive or dead at that time. (So i was conscious that he already passed away in real life). in the end i was like ‘i wanted to know the man i married’ even though we dont talk.
    Second dream: i was talking with my second cousin im a gathering then suddenly my two front teeth started to fall apart into pieces. I managed to catch aome pieces because in my dreams i was still wearing my braces. (I had braces before) . The next scene was inside the cockpit of the aircraft. While then captain and i were talking i learned that we have some common friends. Next scene was in a gathering again, i was about to throw up and ran towards the sink. But it wasn’t food or anything; all my upper teeth fall down with some three from my lower set of teeth. Then when i looked in the sink mirror it was all there again, growing up in an instant. Then i throw up again and the same thing happened. I even touched my gums if it was real and it was. Then it happened again. This time, i ran to our house. While running i realized that i was dreaming (dream within a dream) i found myself infront of my friend’s house and learned that our dogs were given away. So i went yo our house. There, i found the exact scene i dreamed when all of my teeth were falling apart. My father sleeping in bed and my mother. (My father also passed away in reality) the look of the house indicates that we were having financial troubles. And i was like wait, didn’t my father passed awat already? Disregarding the thought, I told them what i dreamed about. Then, i clarified if they really gave away our dogs and my mother said yes because we were having troubles financially. Then i woke up.
    Thank you for your patience.

        Teeth often mean understanding. When our loose understanding, it’s best to ask God to help us by giving us understanding.

    Hi Doug,

    I dreamed my front teeth fell out into my hands, and when I spoke my words sounded funny, so I would put my teeth back into my mouth and held them there to say what I wanted to say clearly. Then they would fall out again. I just carried them around with me so when I had something to say I would put my teeth in just to speak clearly.

    Hi Doug last night I dreamt I pulled out my tooth, it was not paining me, after I pulled it out I said thank you father
    I took a close look at the tooth there was a big hole on the side of the tooth but the decay was clean

  49. Thanuja says:

    Hi Doug, Last Night I dreamt of My spiritual guru was wearing an old robe and was climbing upstairs. No sooner I saw him I started to pray as “Oh God I’m so thankful to you for all what you have given. Not for what you have not given”. I touched my heart and was praying. Then he looked at me and smiled. It was beautiful and a loving smile but I noticed some of his teeth were missing.

  50. Phumelele says:

    These interpretations are very strong,however in my dream,three of my teeth came out at the end of some session. I then took a bus wen I arrived at my place my teeth were back in my mouth…what does it mean ??

  51. Kayleigh says:

    Hey there, can you please help me?

    I had a dream last night about me taking out my teeth which appeared in dentures form , revealing a whole new set of perfect, white teeth. But in the dream I felt as if I needed to keep them covered with the dentures. The dentures seemed to be quite sore in my mouth and I couldn’t talk sometimes. I am a teen and my dreams are a significant part of me because I feel they direct me or they are signs of how to deal with the everyday life. Thank you for your time and reply.

    Much regards

  52. Karen Bowser says:

    I had rotten/decayed teeth fall out but the significance of the dream was how my gums were fully healed right after. I thought that I would go through pain and experience other things from them falling out but, no, I didn’t and it also seemed as if the teeth that fell out didn’t belong there anyway(????)

  53. Erica says:

    I had very a very bad dream that my brother (whos only 14) had a bad tooth infection and made his lip really big and black and blue. It was dripping blood. Then i went in the bathroom and his teeth were on the counter, he pulled them out. Then he had put wooden dentures in. Please decipher this for me.. It terrifies me.

        Thanks for sharing Marcelle. I wonder if he is taking on too much in life right now, often losing front teeth could mean that.

    Hello, I had a terrible dream.I was dreaming that one of my front tooht was moving in all directions, very close to fall from my mouth.I was trying with all my powers to keep it in steady ( with my hand ) but the tooht was moving in my mouth and there was some blood too and the tooth was in a very bad shape, I think.Even more, in this dream, I saw that some people I know were fighting, a very powerful fighting, they were on street but somehow they entered in my house.

  56. Tanisha McLeod says:

    Maybe you can help me with a dream I had this morning. I dreamed I was in the backseat of a car on the right, to my left there was a a little white boy maybe about 7 to 10 in age and there was a white older lady driving maybe middle 40’s to early 50’s. I was looking out the window in fear of where they was taking me. We ended up in a room and with me sitting and the lady standing in front of me, she opened her mouth for me to see her top teeth I reached to grab a tooth, then she pulled out one tooth an placed it in my left hand then asked for my right hand and started clipping my nails ( only one nail ). I wear fake acrylic nails..same in my dream.

    My dream was this: I was in a basketball game and I was running, then all of a sudden all my fillings came out and I had to spit them into a towel then I noticed that all my teeth were new. All accept my crown.
    What could this mean???

  58. onias dail says:

    my dream is like this: i saw my tooth falling and i removed it and i torched the place the was anew good tooth immediately and this one was rotten and other tooth did the same, i was so amused because i know tooth don’t grow immediately and my age above 30

  59. Darlene says:

    My dream is a bit different from other posts. I was standing in line at the grocery store and I look over at my 9 month old and he suddenly has his top 4 teeth. The only teeth he actually has are his bottom front two.

    • Admin Pam says:


      Dreams are like parables or metaphors. A baby represent something new such as a job, gifting, idea. Teeth represent wisdom, understanding, strength. The number 4 usually represents creativity or worldwide impact. And most dreams are about the dreamer so the dream is about you. If we put all the symbols together to tell a story, it is God is birthing new wisdom inside of you that will bring an increase of creativity or world wide impact. How easy is that!

  60. heather says:

    I had a dream my bottom tooth was loose and there was a tooth behind it, what does that mean? I woke up moving my tooth like it was really loose

    • Admin Pam says:


      Dreams are like a parable or a story with a meaning. So try to think of your dream like a story using teeth represent wisdom. So what do you think your dream means?


  61. Michelle A. says:

    My 5 year old daughter prays almost every night with me, she woke me up vomiting at 3:15am, got her cleaned up then we went back to sleep. I then had a dream that my face, eyes and teeth were all black. Even the whites of my eyes were black and my hair was really long messy and very heavy. What does this mean?

  62. Zion says:

    What does it mean when ALL your teeth fall out in your hand, but then you find they are actually still there? In fact even some of the teeth that were actually gone (a bridge over them), had also grown back. When all the teeth fell out, the bridge came out to, but revealed teeth, that didn’t used to be there, now there. In the dream I was telling someone all my teeth fell out, but they were still in my mouth. I didn’t understand how that was possible when I was holding them in my hand.

    • Admin Pam says:


      The key to interpreting a dream is to try to see the dream as a story that God is trying to tell you about your life. If teeth represent wisdom in a dream, then retell your dream substituting the word teeth for wisdom. This will help you understand what God is sayting to you.

  63. AVRIL says:

    I had a weird dream something or someone was banging my head over and over on the table causing my teeth to crack but not break and there was no pain but my teeth were damaged…what is my life trying to warn me.cause it didn’t feel pleasant Thank you

    • Admin Pam says:

      Hey Avril, If teeth represent wisdom, then something in your life is trying to make you doubt what you believe or know to be true. So ask the spirit of truth to shine on your life and show you what is true and what is not.

      I hope this helps, Pam

  64. Mariam says:

    Hey, i need an interpretation of my dream cause i cant find any explanation, so may God gives you wisedom for this…
    I dreamed that my pastor is praying for to have an encounter with God ,so when he began to pray all my teeth beacame loose and fall except all the incisors kept in there place and he was saying as it is a good sign and thats what God wants for me, although he said that i will not able to eat easily after that …

  65. Tamara says:

    I would like to share a dream that I need clarity on. Someone had a baby, I don’t know who, but I know that it was mentioned that the infant was two weeks old. I picked up the baby and as we stood in front of a mirror, I began to play with the infant and it smiled. What was strange about the smile was that the child already had about six or seven teeth in its mouth, and when I began to talk to the baby it tried to imitate in its baby voice the words that I was saying. I later found that every where that I went, I took the baby with me. Then I woke up out of the dream. Can someone shed some light on what this dream could have meant.

    • Admin Pam says:


      Did you see Doug’s blog on Pregnancy & babies? https://dougaddison.com/2014/07/what-do-baby-and-pregnancy-dreams-mean/

      Dreaming of a baby usually usually means God has birthed something new such as a job, gifting, idea. Mirror can mean reflection or double. Teeth usually mean wisdom. So now you look at your dream and tell the story of your dream using the meanings of the two main symbols (baby, mirror, teeth).

      God is giving you something new (job, gifting, idea, opportunity) that will fit into who you are and you will have the wisdom and ability to grow it.

      Pretty easy, huh. Do you have Doug’s free ebook on how to understand your night dreams yet? https://dougaddison.com/free-ebook/

    Thank you for the interpretation. This morning i dreamt that i was with a group of people, we were talling and then all of a suddem one of my front tooth had fallen off, but there was a baby tooth already growing behind it. I don’t understand the dream. Will you please help interpret this dream, I’d appreciate it. Thank you.

    • Admin Pam says:

      Christina, you can begin to understand your own dreams.

      Re-write your dream using the word wisdom instead of teeth and then say read it out loud to yourself. You should be able to grasp what God is saying to you.

    Hello Doug. I want to share a dream i had last night. I saw that my new wisdom teeth on my right right side was evolving. I saw just a small white part of it when i looked into a mirror. Should this be something positive or negative for me? Would you please helo me on this? Thank you.

  68. Trinity says:

    Dear doug perviouly this month i had a dream about my teeth falling out, but it was neither of how you described at the top. The first i had one of these dreams i was in juvenile hall i told my staff randomly. She told me that is wasnt good that someone i know is either sick or going to pass and shortly later on that month my friend ryan had pass. Then i had another and my great grandfather passed, also had a few more then my greatgrandmother passed, and at the beginning of this month i had another one and my very dear friend desiree passed December 26 i found out on the 27th.

  69. Shining Star says:

    HI Doug,

    Could you please reveal this dream to me. I was on the verge of getting a divorce. I guess my husband knew the marriage was coming to an end and he put on a surprise vow renewal. Throughout the course of the dream, I saw an infant in a white dress not soaked in blood but had blood all on it and them my husband came around us and he had blood all on his teeth when he was speaking to me. What does this mean? One of the reasons that I am considering divorce because he is verbally abusive. He is verbally harsh at times then other times he is gentle. He tries, but he does not have temperance of the tongue. I want to make sure I have a clear meaning if he will get delivered and change, dont be fooled by what he says, it could be nothing, or something. We have two kids and unfortunately the baby was suppose to be my baby but I couldnt see her face. I do not want any harm to her or anyone. Please assist me in Jesus Name

  70. jde says:

    Hello, I had a dream I had that I looked into my bathroom mirror and had two rows of bottom teeth and then I became extremely frightened.
    what do you think this dream represents?

    • Admin Pam says:

      Let’s see. if looking into a mirror represents self-image, self-esteem, vision and teeth represent wisdom, understanding, strength, then your dream is showing you that you are lacking wisdom (no top teeth) in how you see yourself and in your self-esteem. 🙂

      God bless you,

  71. Gillian says:

    I have had lots of dreams about teeth but never are they falling or coming lose. Last night I dreamt I was wearing a mouth guard to keep my teeth straight and in particular for my eye tooth to stop it from moving. It was uncomfortable. I assume it has to do with where God is taking me and staying the course no matter how hard. I once had a dream a whale smiled at me and it had the most beautiful white straight teeth. I found the whale in amongst tall buildings in the city 🌃

  72. Amber says:

    Hi my dream was about my baby cutting his first tooth. Could this mean anything ? He has been teething so I do t know if it could just be from the pain he’s in and me wishing he would get his tooth or if the dream has actual meaning

  73. sharon says:

    when i looked into the mirror i saw my front tooth had fallen off already (i didn see it falling n it was already gone) but as i looked closer there was another tooth that had already grew behind it(behind the one that had fallen off already) and there were a few side by side too

  74. Nicole D. Swanagan says:

    I had a dream in which my front tooth fell out and
    Upon it falling out, it was as if it was being pushed out
    I tried to keep it in, crying and in panic and all of a
    Sudden it fell into my hand, I cried and looked in mirror to see the damage and the place where the tooth fell out another tooth replaced the tooth that fell out? Please help..I dont understand this..

  75. Nana Ama says:

    It’s been few minutes since i woke up from taking a nap. In the dream was my family and friends who were happy people. All of a sudden I felt two of my teeth in the middle of the down one coming off so I stepped out. In the dream I had gone to see a doctor to take them off and fixed new ones instantly. It felt good but I cant understand it. Please help me. Thank you so

    • Admin Nikki says:

      Wow what a cool dream. Let me show you how to understand the dream. Were going to replace the word “teeth” with what it represents which is wisdom. In your dream you were with family and and you felt wisdom leave or come off. So you went to the doctor to get it fixed and you got your wisdom fixed or restored. This is a good dream, showing you that you recognized a problem and it was resolved. This is something you can do and learn to grow in with Doug’s free e-book, https://dougaddison.com/free-ebook/.

  76. Brenda says:

    I dreamed last night that my daughter had lost all her upper teeth and her lower teeth were all broken in the front and her back teeth were rotted and very black looking. And my daughter is 25 and her face looked like a baby face and she looked at me and said sorry mom. In my dream I was crying in slow motion. And I woke up in my sleep crying. I’m very puzzled about my dream. Any suggestions?
    Thank you, Brenda

    • Admin Nikki says:

      Thanks for sharing Brenda. I know having dreams like that can be disturbing at first, but God always has a good plan and never one to harm! As it states in the blog, teeth often mean wisdom in a dream. In your dream her teeth were rotting and broke, this may be an indication she is in need of a wisdom because hers is lacking. I suggest to keep praying over her and asking God to grant her wisdom daily. Ask God how you can help your daughter with whatever it is she may be going through too. She may need godly counsel.

      Bless you and your daughter!

    Please I had a dream last night in which I was pulling out the font teeth of my daughter. I am so scared i do not know what it means. Can you help please.

  78. JJ says:

    I am a young woman in her early 30’s. For the past two years, I’ve had a recurring dream about my teeth. In this specific dream, my front teeth are crowding together, being pushed and crammed, and it’s extremely painful. I often have other dreams as well about the teeth breaking apart of falling out, but these are not painful like the first one, which happens once a week. I prayed about the meaning, and in a dream, was told the meaning is that things are spiritually aligning in my life, which is painful. However, after more painful teeth dreams, and often, I am wondering if that was the real meaning, or my subconscious trying to find a meaning. It’s very distressing to feel this pain in my dreams. Please let me know if you have any insights into this.

    • Admin Nikki says:

      Hey JJ! Seems to me like God is drawing your attention to wisdom. If I were you I would focus on Proverbs and other Bible verses on wisdom and ask the Holy Spirit to help them apply to your life.

      That is so awesome that God is speaking to you in your dreams like that! Bless you!

    Anjil khadka

    • Admin Nikki says:

      Thanks for sharing Anjil. As Doug says, teeth often represent wisdom. I would encourage you to read Proverbs and look for verses on wisdom. God will be more than happy to grant you with more wisdom, He’s a good Father. As you ask Him, keep track of your dreams and and see if they change. You may no longer dreams about losing teeth.

      Bless you Anjil and your family.

  80. Shahrukh says:

    I had a dream last night in which I pulled out my canine. The canine was shortly replaced by 2 small teeths of uneven sizes. Kindly put some light on my dream.

    • Admin Pam says:

      Hi Shahrukh,

      We do not interpret dreams online, but we can help point you in the right direction.

      Remember that dreams are like parables or metaphors. If you replace the word canine with the words wisdom & understanding, it may help you understand it more:

      In my dream which I pulled out my wisdom & understanding. I replaced the old wisdom with new wisdom & understanding that appeared smaller and not the same size.

  81. Janene says:

    Hi doug it’s a bit of a confusing dream. 1 min im helping people escape from a terrible danger that cost them their lives and the next minute someone identifies me and im the 1 they wana hurt and as i flee a few people I don’t know, but in the dream the know me, as we running away my teeth is falling out and im spitting teeth and as we reach a safe place the evil peopl closing in and i manage to escape and one of the follow me. I try to explain to him he should leave me alone I open my mouth and teeth with alot ob blood is in my hands, the blood isnt running ithes just in my hands like blood clots. And I show this guy that is trying to kill me and he is not bothered his serious of killing me. I woke with all my teeth in my hands only my from teeth was left. Can you please interpret this weird dream please
    Thank you

    • Admin Pam says:

      Hey Janene, that is a good dream. We don’t interpret dreams online but we can point you in the right direction and offer you our free and low cost training tools if you want to grow in understanding your dreams 🙂

      So the first thing you can do is substitute the word wisdom in your dream for the word teeth. Remember that dreams are like parables or metaphors. I will recap your dream for you to help you understand it more:
      I am helping people escape from a terrible danger that cost them their lives. Someone identifies me & wants to hurt me too. As I run away, my mouth loses almost all wisdom and understanding. I escape, but I am holding my wisdom and blood in my hands. I woke up with all of my wisdom in my hands, except for 2 pieces of wisdom.

      So it sounds like God is showing you that you are under some kind of attack in your life and you need to ask God for more wisdom in how you speak in that area so your hands will be clean / not under any judgement.

      Blessing you as you press in to God, Pam, InLight Connection

  82. Tynan says:

    IN my dream I was looking in the mirror, and I became aware I was in a dream. I then started to stare at myself to see if I could see anything interesting, and my face distorted first into a hideous, monstrous face with borwn reddish eyes, and then into a face that sprouted mouths with teeth all over my face. My actual mouth was also fixed in a screaming position, with angry eyes, even though my face was actually neutral.

    • Admin Nikki says:

      Thank you for sharing Tynan. I would pray and declare identify verses over yourself that you are God’s child and you are made in His image. God loves you so much and does not see you that way.

      Bless you!

  83. Stephanie says:

    I dreamt i was an undercover reporter trying to enter a cult, to find out how bad they where. I was getting nervous about the cult leader. She was mean and yelled alot. I began to tell the other followers in a whisper that I didn’t feel comfortable with what the leader wanted us to do. Suddenly I’m walking with the followers in a line wearing a cloak and my mouth was full of painful braces, I couldn’t close my lips over them because they would cut me. I don’t know what this dream ment but it sure seems symbolic. Can you help?

    • Admin Nikki says:

      Hey Stephanie! Well if wisdom is teeth, and braces are correcting teeth to be perfect, apply that to wisdom. “My wisdom was being corrected and it was painful.” Braces are a good thing, though can be painful, in the end they leave us with awesome teeth. Gaining wisdom can be painful, we sometimes have to go through hard times in life in order to gain wisdom by learning.

      I’d pray the verses about wisdom and declare them over you. Declare that God is giving you wisdom and let God know you receive His wisdom.

      Be encouraged friend, this is a good dream! I’m excited for your growth this season! <3

  84. Priscilla Roman says:

    I had a dream that one of my top tooth was loose and I pulled it and this long thin metal cable came out attached to my tooth which was connected to my brain??. I just couldn’t understand.

    • Admin Nikki says:

      Cool dream Priscilla! I would ask God about the details for this one. What we know is that teeth is mostly likely wisdom, so you pulled out a tooth connected to your brain (a mindset.) What you can ask God to reveal to you is, was this a mindset that needed to be taken out or was it something that should of stayed in? God is already speaking to you so expect him to answer you too. Bless you!

  85. Rose712 says:

    Hi Doug, pls I need your help to interpret my dream. I had a dream that my bf kissing me he smiled me and saw he has rotten teeth in front . What’s the meaning of that???

  86. Gretchen says:

    Hi Doug,
    I had a dream that my teeth came out, the roots were all still there it was my top and bottom teeth. My mother showed me she deters and said it would be okay. I had new fake teeth like that attached my magnets to hold them in place.

    • Nikki, InLight Connection says:

      Teeth often represent wisdom and understanding. So if you apply that symbol what could that mean? Have you replaced a truth or wisdom with something that isn’t truth but appears to be? Ask God and He will show you. If you feel like you need more wisdom, (which we all do ha!), ask God for more wisdom.

  87. Francis says:

    I was in a dream, all I can see or feel is one of my tooth teeth is shaking as if it want to go out but it didn’t. pls, I really want to know the interpretation.


    • Nikki, InLight Connection says:

      Teeth represent wisdom or understanding. So ask God if there is any wisdom or understanding in your life that may need to increase. He is so loving, He will show you if there is anything your needing. Bless you!

  88. Santha Dematera says:

    My teeth just didn’t fall off but I, myself pulled it off from my wisdom tooth unto the front teeth. I don’t know why i did that in my dream. It just happened

    • Nikki, InLight Connection says:

      Teeth often mean understanding and wisdom. So if you pulled out “wisdom/understanding” it may indicate you need more wisdom and counsel. Ask God if there is any wisdom you are disregarding and He will lovingly show you.

  89. kayleen says:

    hi, please what does it mean when someone tells you in a dream that after God is done with you, your back teeth will know wisdom

  90. Taliba Falaq-Lockhart says:

    Dear Doug,
    This is the second dream I had about my teeth. Two months ago I dreamed I was eating and suddenly bit down on something hard. I discovered it was my tooth as I took it out of my mouth, then suddenly I begin spitting out all my teeth; I could feel them coming loose as I spit them all out. Just last night I dreamed I saw in my mouth and I took out a loose tooth. Then I saw I had another loose tooth, then I could feel the rest of my teeth were loose too. In my dream I remembered that this is the second time I dreamed about my teeth coming out; then I woke up. I feel God is trying to tell me something , but what? I prayer and asked God to revealed to me the meaning of such dreams. So I got up starting Googling the “meaning of teeth falling out” and I stumbled upon your site and I glad I did. Would you please help me understand. Taliba

    • Nikki, InLight Connection says:

      Is teeth mean understanding and wisdom, and they are falling out, then you may need to get more wisdom and understanding.

      The best thing to do is what you did, go to God. Then you can ask God for wisdom. James 1:5 says, “If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.” This is so awesome because God wants to give us wisdom and wants to give us lots of it. As you begin to ask and spend time with Him, see how the dreams will begin to change.

      Bless you!

  91. Taliba Falaq-Lockhart says:

    Thank you so much. Would it be okay to send one more dream for your interpretation? I don’t want to bore you.

    • Nikki, InLight Connection says:

      We do not do dream interpretation but we offer symbol suggestions, as I did in the previous one. All of our material we get from Doug’s resources, http://dougaddison.com/training/dream-interpretation/.

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Hi! Cool dream Nicki. It could mean couple things. Teeth mean wisdom or understanding, so you were taking care of your wisdom. God may be showing you you’re in a season of doing this now, or it’s something He wants you to do. Ask God and He will show you. You are loved!

  92. Cheny Chuks says:

    This is the 2nd time am having a dream of a shaking front tooth in the space of two weeks. The first time the tooth actually came off but this time I was woken by my alarm. Am just so confused I don’t know where or how to place the dream.

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Hey Cheny. You might be at a really busy time in your life and God wants you to take time to slow down with Him. Often losing your front teeth symbolizes taking on too much at once.

  93. ME says:

    I had a dream I was at the dentist and they were going to take out my front 2 teeth. So they cut open my gum to take out my teeth n I leave and i can feel with my tongue there arent teeth there anymore but when I look in the mirror they are there and they just sanded my teeth to be even but again when i touch my teeth with my tongue they arent there. I wonder what that means?,

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Teeth usually mean wisdom and understanding. This dream may show that God is giving you new wisdom and understanding that is greater than before. Proverbs is an awesome place to focus on reading when having teeth dreams.

  94. Amanda says:

    Hello! I am having trouble sorting out a tooth dream. Overall it was a good dream even was given a lovely shirt with gemstones on it. In The tooth part I was looking at a magazine and a pretty girl with nice teeth was smiling in an ad. for some reason I felt like I really like her teeth so I held the photo closer for a look and then the girl spoke and said in a friendly way that she didn’t mean for me to look so close!

  95. Latisha Evans says:

    I dreamed that two of mt bottom teeth fall-out by the time I meet up with a group on people in my dream, I had two new bottom teeth. When I awoke I heard wisdom in my spirit, and a relief in my spirit.

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      How cool! You are gaining new, fresh wisdom for this new season. What an awesome dream! Thanks for sharing Latisha!

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Canine teeth are known for chewing things that are tougher, like meat. God may be wanting you to grow in spiritual maturity so that you can “chew on”, or understand, things that require more maturity. He wants this for you out of love because God’s desire for us to is keep growing and growing. You can then always find verses that talk about greater understanding of spiritual things and meditate on them, asking God to give you understanding :-). Bless you!

  96. Sara says:

    I dreamed that my jaw was locked but finally I Could open my mouth after a while but at the first my incisor tooth became loose and then all my upper front teeth became loose, I was crying and I was deeply saddened.
    But a dentist fixed all of my tooth and after that I had a good sense and I Was so caring about them. all my friends were happy for me.

  97. Lucia says:

    Am a nurse, and I dreamt that I was at work and had an intense headache to the left side of my face and I also felt pressure in my teeth like they were being extracted on the same left side.the all the teeth on that side began falling out with blood but I caught the in my hand.and am saying to my colleges check my pressure but nobody is paying any attention to me,so I decided to run to the ER. I jump from the sleep scared and with an intense headache on my left side of my head.what does my dream mean

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Hey Lucia, We do not interpret dreams here at InLight Connection, we provide resources to help others interpret for themselves. Losing teeth often represent needing to gain more understanding or wisdom. I would ask God to give you more wisdom and see how your dreams shift as you grow in understanding.

      Here is a link to Doug’s dream resources, https://dougaddison.com/training/dream-interpretation/.

  98. BHEKI says:

    I dnt knw how many times ive been dreaming of my teeth coming out of my mouth my last dream was molars two of them being removed easly

  99. Sarah Naula says:

    A couple of months ago I dreamt that all my teeth were falling out at a terrific speed, even when I tried to hold them back, I couldn’t save any. So last night I dreamt that I was chewing gum, and all of a sudden my chewing gum turned black, like I had one of my molars really decayed and was generating black particles. What is the meaning of this?

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Hey Sarah! Usually when we dream about teeth being lost, it has to do with needing more wisdom and understanding. I would ask God to give you more wisdom and spend some time in Proverbs, which contains tons of wisdom verses. You can ask God to show you how to apply those verses in your life and declare over yourself that you are growing in wisdom. Bless you!

  100. Ajinomoh Justina says:

    My name is justina . I was in a dream and all my Teath was falling off gradually till everything came off. Blood everywere. I showed my dad he could not look at my face. He was shedding tears in the dream. Pls help me

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Hey Justina. Often dreaming about missing teeth is an indication of needing wisdom and understanding. I would spend some time with God asking Him to give you wisdom. God loves you so much and loves to pour out wisdom on his kids. After spending time with God asking for wisdom, pay attention to your dreams and see if they change after asking God. Bless you!

  101. Kelvin Kalu says:

    My name is Kelvin, I was in a dream when i noticed a tooth was shaking so I pulled it out myself and someone else tried to bury it but I asked the person to wait that I needed to look at it very well. Then I woke up

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Hey Kelvin. Teeth often mean understanding and wisdom. When we loose teeth, it can mean we need to gain wisdom and understanding. You can often replace the word wisdom for teeth. So your wisdom fell out and someone tried to bury it. You said wait, I need to look at this wisdom very well. Though you lost it, you were not ready to fully part from it yet. Ask God to show you what He wants you to understand and pray for wisdom. You are so loved by God, He will be more than happy to show you <3.

        I won’t go in to too much detail it would take to much time. I was 38 I’m now 45 and I Renner this dream like it was yesterday .the entire earth was covered in sand I was walking around trying to figure out what happened I fell then seen a dark presence behind me I was running but the harder I tried to run the slower I went and they were catching up to me grabbing at my clothes and then I woke up scared but fell back asleep then I was there again and seen almost relative who died from a drug over dose I told him this is a bad dream he told me I wasn’t dreaming and I was in hell I woke up imiedatly crying and scared ran to my mom’s room and she asked me what was wrong I told her about my dream she said it wasn’t a dream and opened her mouth her face extended outwards like a dog and her teeth looked like drill bits I ran back to the coach buried my face and gripped it with all my strength saying and respecting this is only a dream

        • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

          Hey Frank, thanks for sharing your dream with us. I can imagine that being really scary for you. Doug wrote a blog post on nightmares here, https://dougaddison.com/2015/08/what-to-do-when-you-have-a-nightmare/.

          We do not interpret dreams on the blog or through email, but I can say, God’s desire is for you to go to heaven not hell. So as you ask God what the dream means, know that He loves you so much and does not want to be separate from you.

    Dear Doug

    I dreamt of a big green crocodile blocking the way where I was supposed to pass.everything around it was green,but eventually I managed to push it.what does it mean?

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Hey Mosima. We offer a great dream interpretation training that you can take right now, https://dougaddison.store/product/dream-crash-course/. Unfortunately, we presently do not have the staff in place to interpret dreams sent in to us—please bear with us.

      The cool thing in your dream is you were able to push it. Take a moment and think, what could it mean for something big and vicious is blocking my way, but I eventually am able to move it?

  103. Julie says:

    I had a dream I was at my moms house and went upstairs to my brothers room ( whom I’ve been ministering to in real life) and his room and bathroom were a huge mess. I went into his bathroom and looked in the mirror and started pulling my tooth out and more and more came out until there was only gum left.

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Thanks for sharing your dream Julie. As Doug says, loosing teeth can often indicate needing wisdom. You can always ask God to give you wisdom, especially when dealing with your family. You are loved so much. Bless you for being such a light to your family.

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Pulling out your own teeth can indicate a need for wisdom. As Doug says above, teeth often mean understanding and wisdom. When we dream about losing teeth, it always good to ask God to show you what He wants you to understand and pray for wisdom.

      If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. James 1:5

      Bless you!

  105. Jessie G says:

    Hi Doug, I dreamed that one of my front bottom teeth became loose. I then lifted it up and it snapped on half. The front bottom tooth next to it became loose and it slid out with my tongue and I pulled it out. I’m very interested in to know what this means. There was no blood, just a clean space where they were gone.
    Thank you.

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Loosing teeth often means a need for wisdom. Doug has some great resources on dream interpretation that will help you gain greater understanding on dreams. Bless you!

  106. Karen says:

    I had a very good feeling dream the other night about being at a dentist office and in real life I hate going to the dentist and I usually avoid it. But I had a woman dentist filling in one of my molar tooths. I knew she was fixing a tooth and there wasn’t any pain or any bad experience, it just felt like a very positive experience. Any interpretations? …thanks.

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Very cool Karen. As Doug says teeth often represent wisdom. So you were getting your wisdom fixed. You may enjoy Doug’s webinar Destiny Dream Interpretation where he talks about how God can reveal our callings and destiny in our dreams.

  107. Gold says:

    A thought to share this dream since there’s not a lot of talk/interpretation on braces: a rubber band attached to my braces tore. Realizing this when I felt it with my finger, I ripped the rest of it off which loosened the entire upper arch of braces, so I pulled it out as one piece. I’m able to put these in & take them out at my leisure, knowing I can go days without them if I so wanted.

    Interpretation: my understanding/wisdom needs aligning once in a while. Or, rather, the aligning of my understanding needs to be more frequent? And the breaking of the rubber band?

    Which one would it be? The more I think about it, the more interpretations I get that it could be this or it could be that… I’d appreciate any thoughts at all… mucho gracias! & blessings! 🙂

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Hey Gold! I love how to went ahead and gave interpreting the dream a try. It mind depend on if your teeth were then crooked or if they were then straight. If they were straight then you wouldn’t need them anymore right? If they were crooked you would still want the braces.

      In Doug’s Dream Crash Course he talks about how to interpret a dream in 4 quick steps. You can find out more about Doug’s dream interpretation resources here here. Bless you!

      • Gold says:

        Hey Nikki! They were STRAIGHT & pretty – woohoo!! Thank You Jesus!! And thank you for your response Nikki. Although at times a response may be only one or two sentences, it speaks VOLUMES, as yours just did for me & I’ll tell you why.

        The only other dream I’ve had (recently) of braces is of my putting the bottom arch braces onto the top arch of my teeth which obviously didn’t fit well & fell out, so I took them out of my mouth. Again, my teeth were STRAIGHT & pretty already. Upon waking, I was left wondering why I had braces?! The Lord is telling me that the wisdom I’ve been repeatedly asking for over the years is already in place! I must trust that it is indeed, & I need only learn how to properly apply it to my everyday life regarding the “nuggets” He gifts me in other dreams.

        Wow! How about that?! Your one thought of straight or not, got me pondering to the unraveling of Father’s message – so, so good! I’m in gratitude of your work for the Lord & everyone there at the ministry. I send a prayer of overflowing blessing & favor to overtake you this day in Jesus’ name! Love you guys! 🙂

        • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

          Wow, that is so cool! I am so glad I was able to offer some help by asking you that question. Thanks so much for sharing that with me. It warms my heart! 🙂 <3. Bless you!

  108. Lou Sanchez says:

    Hi Doug. I’ve been having more dreams than ever lately. Very vivid and I can remember most of them in full detail. Here’s one I just had:

    Had a dream that Nathan (my youngest son, 18) came home and he was just sitting on a chair. I got closer to him and noticed that his front teeth were cracked off. I got in his face and quietly asked three times “who knocked your teeth out?”…tears began to fall from his eyes and he had the saddest look on his face.

    I have a lot going on in my life at the moment. With all these strange dreams I’ve been having, I think someone is trying to tell me something.

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Hey Lou! That is great you are paying attention to your dreams. Doug has some awesome teachings on understanding dreams. You can look into those here. The Dream Crash Course is one that really helps you understand how to interpret dreams and how to interpret other peoples dreams. Bless you and your son Lou!

  109. Usha s says:

    My right lower incisors had a black rotten spot. Just when I thought it was bad…another black rotten spot was seen on the same tooth much lower near the gum on the inside.
    I woke up after I saw the other rotten spot.

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Usha, Doug says this in the above article, “Now that you can understand what dreaming of teeth can mean, the thing that really matters is how you respond. God is trying to point out how to have a positive outcome. Responding in some way will make the dream come alive. In the case of these teeth dreams, pray and ask God to show you what He wants you to understand and pray for wisdom.” Bless you!

      • Shitalala says:

        All my teeth are falling out at ones.. Everything.. I have had this dream about 5-6 times now… I really need help on intrepreting it.. Sometimes it looks as if i get drain spiritually after this dream.. And now i am quite scared because i keep dreaming the same dream of all the teeth in my month falling out.. Please help????

        • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

          Teeth represent wisdom. Loosing teeth often represents needing more wisdom. Now that you can understand what dreaming of teeth can mean, the thing that really matters is how you respond.

In the case of these teeth dreams, pray and ask God to show you what He wants you to understand and pray for wisdom.

  110. Nelly says:

    Hi, I had a dream that my fiance handed me this tool and I began to pull them out. there were several people trying to stop him and trying to convince him to not let me pull them out.. they would push him away from me..I ended up pulling out several which he caught several of them…what does it mean?

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Teeth often meaning wisdom and understanding. So if you were pulling your teeth out, you may want to ask God for wisdom. Bless you Nelly. God loves you so much!

  111. Erika Jacott-Strum says:

    I dreamed that all my teeth were rotted and fell out. They were black and I Iwas holding them on my hand. I heard someone say they were not rotted and that they weren’t all my teeth. But I replied that they were. Then I saw one on my hand that was white. I started moving my hand around and thought to myself that maybe they weren’t my own teeth. I didn’t feel my mouth was missing any teeth but then I knew all the teeth in my hand were my t teeth and molars. What does this mean?

  112. Aish says:

    Hi Doug,
    Last night I dreamt that I have lots of really rotten teeth and all of my teeth’s are falling off I see maggots in some and as they fall a lot of new teeth grow in their places,some in doubles…one behind another. They are new and stronger teeth and when people asks what’s happening to me i told them Jesus has given Me new teeth he’s doing this for me.

    What does this mean Plse kindly explain

  113. Phathu says:

    Hi Dough
    Last night I dreamt of someone telling me thank my breath smelt very bad, then they suddenly pointed at one of my tooth that was loose and said that was the reason I had bad breath.Then I went to the mirror and I realised that all my tooth were loose,looking like they might fall anytime and to my surprise they were extremely white.I panicked running to my mom and told her that my teeth were falling but she never took me seriously.Then after a while I saw an image of my cousin that just recently passed away and my uncle who is the deceased dad.

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Thanks for sharing Phanthu! Teeth often represent wisdom/understanding. If teeth are in bad condition if often is symbolic for not good understanding. You can pray and ask God to reveal and remove any ungodly thoughts or ideas you have and to replace it with godly wisdom. You can also ask God to reveal any generational blessings or curses that might have contributed to this.

      God bless you!

  114. Martins Carez says:

    I dreamt, I was brushing my teeth and all of a sudden the whole teeth changes into silver. I was scared I touches the incisors teeth it was peeling and later pull out. I touched the other side of incisor teeth it peel and pull out. I was scared so I woke up…

  115. Amanda says:

    My highly intelligent daughter who has a vocabulary of a six-year-old and is extremely intuitive to anything spiritual had a dream that she pulled one of my teeth out. It had her very upset. What this dream name? Oh by the way she is three years old. She does not sleep well at night or at naptime she tossed and turns . I get upset sometimes because she cries out in her sleep and moans and groans she never fully seems surprised that there’s nothing medically wrong with her. So I don’t know if it’s because she is having this vivid dreams or what it is, but normally she doesn’t tell me about these dreams but this one really had her upset because she doesn’t want to hurt Mommy.
    So my question again is why would she dream that she pulled one of my teeth out? Thank you and God bless

  116. Enniah says:

    Trying to figure out my dream on teeth I landed on this site. I dreamt pulling out my pastor’s 4 upper front teeth. They were sparkling white, just a touch they would come off out of the 4 one came out with the root and the root was black. after pulling them out he showed signs of pain and he collapsed.

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Hey Enniah! We do not interpret dreams on the blog but teeth often represent wisdom and understanding. God bless you!

  117. Gideon says:

    Could you please point me to any scriptures that back it up that teeth actually have anything to do with wisdom and that this interpretation did not just come from the English terminology of “wisdom teeth”?

    I can’t find any such scriptures.

    All I could locate was on “an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth”, “a gnashing of teeth”, plenty of references to the teeth of the enemy/teeth as weapons/devourers, and “to trust in an unreliable person is like chewing with a broken/rotten tooth” (Proverbs)

    Thank you!

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Hey Gideon! In Ezekiel 3:3 Ezekiel eats the scroll to get revelation/understanding from the Lord to speak to Israel.

      God bless you!

    Hello my dream was of my Daughter’s Father. His brother was at my house, who lives out of town. I f I recall right , the father was in a race he stopped by my house. He was going to give the brother some money. But when he sat down. I advised him his teeth where bleeding. He was wearing the invisaligners. He roved them and blood started streaming. I woke up

      If teeth mean understanding or wisdom, and you are cleaning your teeth, what would that mean to you?

  120. Mama boy says:

    Hello, I had a dream where my teeth had fallen off. I looked into the mirrow and saw almost half of teethics gone and more were just hanging ready to fall off too..what can this really mean?

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Hey. In Doug’s blog post he say’s the following that will help you,
      “Teeth chew food and make it useful for the body. Symbolically, teeth chew the word or teaching of God so it can be digested and made useful through application. Chewing or thinking about something brings deeper understanding. (You are “chewing on” this revelation even as you read.) That’s why teeth coming loose or falling out means you’re in need of direction, wisdom or advice.”

  121. ELLY says:


    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Hey Elly. In Doug’s blog post above he wrote that teeth often mean wisdom and understanding. So if you got new teeth on your dream, what would that then mean? Hope that helps!

  122. Ericka Romo says:

    Hello, I just had a dream we’re I was at my grandmothers house with family and for some reason I was running from someone. I looked in the mirror because I felt something weird and front tooth was half gone(top portion), molar was loose, and I had another one gone. Just wondering what this means.

  123. Genger White says:

    I have had a dream last night about a piece of floss sticking out of my gums. So I pull and pull it out and at the end is a bug in my gums then I realize I have several bugs in my gums and holes where some have come out.

      Thanks for sharing Genger. I’d ask the Lord for wisdom and revelation for the new thing He is doing. God bless you!

  125. Mia says:

    I’m sorry but I just really don’t believe in god. I might get hate for this but I can’t just sit around and not”speak my truth”. I applaud people that believe in religion and I cannot judge, I have multiple religious friends. I just can’t seem to get my head around a superior power that has granted wishes for millions of people meanwhile I’ve been getting hit after hit and no miracle and none of my prayers have been answered. My friends say that God is testing my strength but I sat praying and crying by my bed while my parents fought downstairs for 10 years. You can’t tell me I don’t have a right to believe God isn’t truly there

  126. Fabiola says:

    Hi I keep having dreams that my teeth are loose , each dream is different, but last night I had a dream where one tooth was loose and I felt it and I could move it when my tongue touched it . What does this mean?? Please help …

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Teeth often mean wisdom and understanding. So the Lord may be showing you that you need wisdom in some area of your life. I would pray and ask the Lord. God bless you!

    Hi I wanted to share a dream I never expieranced before like this. This dream is def called good and evil it began where I was having a laugh chasing after a old friend in a mall in seemed like but than the dream shifted it went back home to my laundry room. The room felt odd and not normal something to told me to back up and all a sudden a black hand appeared out of this brown blanket and I backed up shook to the core. Now usually I leave in real life my back door open and don’t care but something told me to keep the evil away and locked up. As I proceeded into my house I wanted to run and tell my uncle, my uncle is a huge part of who I am today he made me sees things that I can’t explain I am grateful for him every waking second I love him dearly. As I was approaching him I stopped and noticed my passing of my dog on the floor he laid there lifeless and no sign of movement I was all a sudden very overwhelmed and couldn’t underhand anything. Finally reached to my uncle side and begged him to wake up he was sleeping on the couch, I told him somethings wrong and he kept if ignoring me honestly must of the other parts are a blur but I remember very well the evil presence grabbing a hold of me and I’m trying so hard to break 𝐅𝐫𝐞𝐞. My uncle now standing looked at me and was mute and I begged for help I said please help me uncle and he refused me and I began feeling the creature wrap his hands around my mouth and I couldn’t talk no more it was stripped away. Than I prayed to god please lord save me please give me a chance I’ll make it better and all a sudden my uncle looked down at and smiled and said hold on and we went through a door and he was glowing and there was that holy music and the demon holding on I screamed you will not have me today demon let me go and I kept following my uncle and than I woke up. This dream has made me see things that I’m dealing with in my life rn but I wanted to share it I’m not religious or crazy lmao I just had a dream I wanted to publish I hope someone replies or reaches out and gives there opinion have a great day. 🙂

  130. Sophie says:

    I have dreamt of my molars falling out painlessly. The first time I did was back in 2013, my paternal grandfather died about a month later. The second time was a month ago and my grandfather’s only brother died as well, about two weeks later. Three days ago, I dreamt I was extracting 2 left molars. I don’t feel good this time round 🙁 Has anyone experienced something similar?

  131. Tania says:

    I very often have very vivid dreams, but never seem to figure them out. I just had a dream that 3 of my molars fell out in 1 piece and I freaked out then suddenly I was laughing with family/friends and I realized that my front tooth had a crack and it started to open up until it was split in half and it became loose. Then I found myself in my car, I was going to the dentist and all of a sudden my car is backing up slowly and I was pressing the breaks but it kept going and there was a car behind me but I just couldn’t get the car to stop. And I decided to look at the pedals and realized there were 4 pedals and I was pressing the wrong 1. I ended up hitting the car it was just a scratch but somehow my car ended up parked backwards perfectly and the guy that I hit was at the passenger window starting to yell at me, but I looked confused I guess it’s cause I saw 4 pedals instead of 2 and I remember trying to explain to him everything that was going on and I kept trying to hold my teeth cuz they were falling out, kind of like dentures and then I went to talk to someone about my appointment and they tell me to stop my car and they hooked it to a machine that I would then guide with hand signals. As if the machine would detect my hand movements and it would know the direction I had to go meanwhile someone through a speaker would tell me where to go. I ended up in the office and began to explain what happened with my teeth at first it was a lady but then it was a man and he asked me to show him the kinds of dresses I wear to weddings so I walked to my room which was literally the room next to the office and I go in my closet and try on 2 dresses and show him. My closet was almost empty and then I showed him 1 pretty short light blue dress (last 1 I had) but I told him I couldn’t wear it cause I had gained weight and he asked when and I said a few months ago then an assistant came with me to my room and checked my closet and there were more dresses this time and he picked out this really pretty long white dress with very vibrant flowers and he said something to the effect of that being the dress that they thought was the best and as I went back to the office I woke up. I hope you can help me cause I always have these weird vivid dreams that never make sense at all. About 3 days ago I dreamt of centipedes. A couple of months ago about roaches. And I have noticed that most of my dreams are with specific numbers most often the #3…. Sorry so long. And thanks in advance.

  132. Liss says:

    Dear Doug,
    I wake up this morning sad and worried I had a dream that my teeth has been removed, I was holding some and some also fell in front of an open gate in the sand, I was looking for it in a sad mood when a kid around the ages of 6 it seems she want to pass I shout at her to leave with tears in my eye . When she left I found the rest of the teeth and rash inside put them in a water and try fixing them when I woke

  133. Dakota says:

    One time I had a dream I was in school, and dental safari came to school. They were doing work in my school library and i was one of the first to go. The dentist instantly took out a teeth scraper, and my instincts kicked in and I ran. I escaped into a different dentist location, which my friend owns. I go to the room I was suppose to get my work done, and this time it was a different dentist. This dentist had short brown curly hair. She put sunglasses on me, but then she messed my teeth up with several different tools. When I exited the room, i told my friend [who was the owner] and she put the dentistry on lock down. I spent the rest of the day in my dream running and running from this same dentist, turning corners and running into dead ends, etc. What does this dream mean? Im a boy if you were wondering.

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Hey Dakota! Teeth removal often has to do with not having wisdom. I would ask God for wisdom and spend time reading Proverbs. This is a book in the Bible that talks a lot about wisdom.

      Here is a list of Doug’s dream interpretation resources, https://dougaddison.com/training/dream-interpretation/. One is a free ebook on dreams that would be a great first start. God bless you!

  134. Nikki says:

    Hi! I’ved dream about my husband’s teeth. In the dream there is a occassion and he come to me saying that he was bumped into something then he show me his teeth and it almost removed to his gum. What does that mean?

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Hey Nikki! Teeth often mean wisdom. So when they are missing or have an issue, it may mean God wants you to pray for wisdom or seek Him on something. God bless you!
