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.
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!
