...we've all got something to grind.
i have that same one on occasion...also hate it.
I have it repeatedly, too... though what exactly happens to my teeth varies. Sometimes they come out. Sometimes a few get broken. Once my entire set of bottom teeth popped out.I blame my mom for instilling within my the notion that I have good teeth (though unlike you, Ren, I never thought of it in class terms; I only learned about the teeth/class connection fairly recently).
hm. Usually, in the dream, I start out with no teeth! Then I worry about going leaving the house.
Never had that dream. The one I have all the time is where I've lost the bones in my arms, but they're still attached, like dead weight, and slowly becoming gangrenous. Typically, I'm also about to do something important, for which, you know, I would need my arms. Weird what our unconscious does...
mostly I dream about some natural disaster sweeping my family away from me forever. I always have that right before a serious mania hits.
I've heard that it's a reaction to stress, specifically gritting one's teeth while asleep. I've also heard is has something to do with the mechanisms of speaking and being heard, and anxiety about that.
A dream where your teeth are coming out? Are your teeth trying to tell you something? And, shame on you for keeping them in the closet for so long.
I get that one too. My teeth rot and crumble in my mouth. Also, I get a similar one where my hair falls out in clumps. I think it is stress. Someone once told me it has to do with impotence, or feeling powerless.
With me, it feels like...social embarassment, or maybe loss of control, or something. Like, I didn't take proper care of them, and -now- look what's happening. (And, recently, the dentist's gonna charge some astronomical amount of money to put it right, and I'm stuck somewhere in travel/transit and can't get to him for a while anyway).I had a really rather disturbing dream last night, I think perhaps not unrelated to the current brouhaha, although it involved men.
I get that one too.
UGH. Yeah, me too. Then I wake up and have do a tooth-check to make sure they're all still in there.
I've always been told that it's about loss of control, too (and when I was having the dream, it made sense). When I have it, the teeth themselves are actually in great shape- they're straighter and whiter than mine have ever been. In my dream, they just sort of start coming loose- like my jaw is turned to gum or someting. When I talk, they start moving around in my mouth and falling out, and I try to hold them in, and I can't. It's horrifying. *shudder*
I hate that too!! I have that one a lot... never ceases to be terrifying.I remember reading something once, a long time ago, that was trying to say that dream was supposed to be about your mother. I don't remember how they came up with THAT conclusion.
Isn't everything?-As- it happened, today I get in the mail a reminder from my dentist that I'm due for a checkup.-shudder-
Isn't everything?Yeah, pretty much.Good luck at the dentist. I always hate going and being there, but am happy w/ how nice and clean my teeth feel afterward. I had a few pretty traumatic dental experiences as a kid, so I probably dread it more than a lot of people - and that horrible dream is even more horrible!
I think in my case it's a question of irreversibility. Broken arms mend; rotten teeth don't.
yeah, there's this terrible sense of -loss-, somehow. also embarrassment; everyone will see.
Whenever I have dreams like that my teeth aren't just falling out, they're actively crumbling and chipping apart in my mouth and for some reason no amount of brushing makes it better. I hate dreams like those.
yeah, lately it's more like, they're loose, hanging by a thread, and I think if I just don't disturb it too much it might hold (sort of like this craptastic office chair I have here that falls apart every two minutes); but then, I have to keep wiggling it, or it just comes loose anyway.
Once, my version of the teeth dream had my teeth crumble away and sand then poured out of the sockets. It felt strange (an understatement).
