Baby teeth are a sign of development, a step towards becoming an adult. The loss of milk teeth is a sign of the loss of innocence and childhood dreams, therefore, milk teeth in a dream are associated with childhood feelings, which are lost.
Teeth can also show words that we want to say but don’t – perhaps topics that we would like to see come out in life. In some civilizations, tooth loss often represents the actual loss of life. According to Jung, milk teeth represent the birth of new possibilities. If you are a dentist, and you are having your baby teeth worked on (such as a filling or extraction) this means that the dreamer is almost ready for any challenge that life can throw at him.
In your dream you can have
- I have seen milk teeth in a child.
- Spit out milk teeth.
- Baby teeth are crooked.
- Remove milk teeth.
- I have seen the tooth fairy.
- Completely toothless.
- I have seen clean baby teeth.

Detailed interpretation of sleep
Crooked baby teeth are a symbol of a difficult youth, and your possible hunger for adventure and stimulation in adult life. Pay attention to your response system. Is there something that is frustrating you right now? Dreaming that baby teeth are falling out means that you will encounter endless struggles. Only someone close to you will provide you with the energy and potential to create unexpected things in life.
The detail around the baby teeth dream means that your unconscious may be trying to send you a message. If your baby teeth are wobbly, this may be an indication that you have been acting immature and need to think about how you can solve life’s problems.
Baby teeth are also a sign of protection, because they protect adult teeth. Seeing the tooth fairy take the baby teeth means that you care about the image you have of yourself. This also means that you need to have a wish granted.
If you have no teeth in your dream, it means that someone close to you is possibly neglecting things in life. If the milk teeth are rotten it means that a close friend may be at risk. He may, for example, underestimate or misunderstand people and situations, and not have the ability to listen to the advice of others.
If you see clean baby teeth or sparkling teeth, this means that friendships will be solid. If the roots of the milk teeth appear, it means that it is important to take other people into account in waking life.
Brushing baby teeth in your dreams means that you are trying to get rid of waking life problems. If something gets stuck in the baby teeth then this suggests that the dreamer is perhaps thinking about the future.
Seeing different sized baby teeth means that there may be a problem in life, but you have the knowledge to rectify any problem. You could see that the baby teeth are gold. If so, then Jung associated gold with our higher self. This suggests that the dreamer is looking for something valuable in life.
Spitting out baby teeth means that something in waking life needs to be removed. If you dream that your milk teeth have fallen out then this suggests that you are satisfied with your adult life. In some cases, dreaming of black milk teeth or that there is contamination in the mouth is a negative omen. This is because black teeth suggest regret for what has been said or done.
Seeing another person or a child with baby teeth often arouses even a temporary feeling of “losing it”, this can be experienced as the feeling or inability to get exactly what one deeply wants, therefore this means a possible loss of money, or perhaps a loss of personal respect in some way.
Teeth can represent the words we say or don’t say…perhaps the problems we want to have with others. One of the main associations for many people who have this dream is what we look like to others. In some cultures the loss of baby teeth often represents a particular regeneration of a new life. But when we lose our baby teeth we are very aware of the true emptiness in our mouth: very aware of the loss. For this reason, a misplaced milk tooth can be related to the loss of something important. However, it can also mean that something may go wrong.
If in the dream there is any pain related to the loss of the milk tooth, this can be seen as a sign of a connection in waking life, which must be concluded, but is nonetheless painful to lose. If baby teeth are falling out in large groups, this can signify a sense of loss, such as the death of a family member or perhaps a loved one; the actual method of tooth extraction is important. If the milk teeth fall out, this is related to the preparation, therefore, to problems with aging in life. In the event that a single baby tooth falls to the ground, this could suggest loss, unhappiness, or even illness of someone close.
Because milk teeth are naturally lost and replaced by new ones, it could also be understood that sleep is associated with a new duration or path of life. Generally a full set of baby teeth in your dream can show aggressiveness or maybe defensiveness. This dream can also be a warning to “chew on things.” In other words, don’t rush to say things in life.
Small or large baby teeth mean durability, energy, or perhaps the ability to take on a project is required. Small teeth mean the opposite, except they aren’t really small… if they are small then this may suggest “biting” comments. If you smile and baby teeth this presents an enormous amount of pressure, but we all have the determination or routine of our own tooth whenever we hold back great physical or even mental pain, anger or losing hope.
Dirty baby teeth mean that a new perspective on things in life is required. Royal dirt suggests that perhaps there is a problem with your authority in waking life, this is not clear to others when you communicate, and it may also be impacting your success in life. Seeing Dracula’s type of baby teeth means that you may need to consider if he is trying to negatively impact someone else. Swallowing a lot of milk teeth means that something is going to happen psychologically. If the baby teeth are falling out in groups, then this is related to aging and loss of good looks.
