A bunch of us had seemingly won a trip to New Zealand. My Mom, brother and I (my Sister had ventured off with friends) were climbing a winding staircase up a massive mountain. We reached the top and a lovely lady let us walk through her home to get to a secret route back down the mountain so we could avoid the masses of people coming up behind us. After admiring the lovely wooden table her Maori husband had hand crafted, we made our way back down. While descending I began to play with a bottom tooth that had been bothering me. After wiggling away it came loose and fell into my hand. I was disturbed, mortified and was worried others would notice.

I woke up and, of course, checked it out:

“Oftentimes, it is not the dream of the teeth falling out that creates the disturbance to the psyche but the feelings that accompany the dream. There is often a feeling of helplessness, of powerlessness–the teeth are coming out and there is nothing the dreamer can do to stop the process. Whichever way they make their exit, the dreamer is left with not only a gap in her smile, but a hole in her heart when she awakens.”

“Dreams of tooth loss coupled with anxiety reflect a fear of change, fear of transition. Ask yourself if there is some transition that you are fearful of making.”

“Sometimes tooth loss dreams point to a fear of failure or embarrassment. In waking life, when people lose teeth, they often cover their mouths when talking or smiling. Is there something you want to do but are afraid of undertaking because you fear you’ll look foolish if you fail?”

VERY interesting indeed. I do believe that secret messages are relevant in dreams like these.
