  1. I dreamt that a woman told me my natural mother(passed on) sent me a msg for my family to watch our teeth. I laughed and said it was a lil late because mine were just pulled and I have an upper. But what is the meaning of that dream?

  2. I can’t find anything online in regards to the dream I had. In my dream, my cousin and I were living together and she was getting ready to go out with her boyfriend who lived around the block. She came to me needing help because one of her top front teeth grew much longer then the one next it. I filed the long tooth down to where they were even, but the tooth quickly grew back longer like before. Everytime I would file it down for her, it would grow right back. What on earth does it mean?

  3. I dreamt that I was brushing my teeth next to another person, nice guy who was also brushing his own with a fancy toothbrush. He gave me a new brush just like his to try. I used the new tooth brush and was amazed. It had a tiny end on it so it could really clean in difficult places. I started to clean my teeth and noticed that from the very back of my wisdom teeth area a lot of built up debris started falling away. It felt like I was cleaning away years of accumulated food matter. I think it was a positive dream, meaning a new beginning for me or a fresh start but would like to know more. I was left feeling happy in the dream.

  4. I had a dream I brushing my teeth and admiring them, till I noticed that I had a loose tooth on the inner part of my bottom jaw. Instead of it being a normal tooth it was a fang (like a snake fang only human size canine)
    I pulled it out. It was very point on the bottom half of the fang and a little bloody.
    I was checking it out, and I accidentally cracked it. It eventually started braking and cracking so I threw it away, only I didn’t see me throwing it away I just knew that I did.
    Throughout all of this I felt no pain but I was very curious about my tooth, which is why it didn’t bother me.

    I hope someone can interpret this for me.

  5. i have dream that all new tooth appear at lower jaw and only two tooth appear at upper jaw of my nine months son and he is smiling and happy and his tooth are white and beautiful and in the same way i m surprised tht atlast new tooth come of my son and now he ll not face any difficulty to chew food.what is the meaning of this dream but i think its good dream.ALLAH knows better.

  6. I had a dream that my upper front teeth and lower front teeth were replaced with new set of teeth?. What the meaning of my dream?. I am curious and worried? Plz somebody give me right answer.

  7. I dreamt that I had a tooth growing between my two front teeth at the top, it grew long and brown then became lose. That is when I woke up. What does this mean?

  8. In my dream, I drempt I was in Mexico or some where with only Hispanic people and myself. One tooth on the top became lose and fell out then my retainer was messed up and my teeth had melted and re-hardened. Then they started to erode and become bloddy. The pain was horrific!!!! Then the Hispanic people prayed with me and my teeth were pearly white and just fine. What in the world does that mean?

  9. Almost every single night in my dreams I have teeth that don’t fit in my mouth, that prevent me from being able to eat and even close my mouth, and that are crooked and bunched together. What does this mean?

  10. I had a dream about something that actually already happened. That I was talking face to face to the girl I secretly love and this time in the dream her teeth were terribly crooked and her face with a bunch of zits. I mean we are teenagers, but she has perfect skin and beautiful teeth. What does that mean?

  11. i had a dream that my boyfriend got into a fight and his opponent punched him hard enough that his upper premolar was removed..devastated he showed it to me and we plan to see a dentist..

    overview: in that dream my officemate in real life helped him and punched the opponent..my boyfriend got to a fight because he became jealous to his opponent (i can’t remember who he is in real life).

  12. I had a dream I met an acquaintance at a harbor. It was a man and I was sort of flirting with him. When he spoke I noticed his mouth had quite large square teeth, this person wasn’t particularly attractive. They invited me on a cruise but I was unsure. They started to walk down the dock along side the cruise liner, but not to the gang plank and I noticed their physique looked very unhealthy, sort of flabby obese, not healthy fat. They turned around and smiled at me and the mouth had more teeth with gaps in between and now they were more crooked. I was unsure about going on the cruise, then I was told that someone had messed with my passport so I most likely couldn’t go.

    I am now somewhere else and need to take a dump, I am constipated. (ok this part is sort of funny… yeah I got my finger up my a$$). I put my finger in my behind and then have a wonderful 30 foot long poo. It is sort of a gold color, nice even size in a nice pattern. I see I missed the toilet which is super clean and white but there is dried tree wood in the u bend, looks like it is clogging it. I go to clean up hide the poo ( which was not messy at all I just picked it up and moved it) except for a small 6 inch piece. I forget exactly… but a cleaning woman comes by and comments about the wood in the toilet
    So this is what is going on in my life. I am in negotiations with a woman who wants me to help/partner with her to open a restaurant. I am fully qualified and experienced, she is not. She has great expectation but is not aware of what it will take. She is passionate about the project and is raising the funds. I have been assisting her for the past 10 months, she has hired attorneys to draw up agreements. I feel that I will be dumped on with tons of work or she will expect me to take care of alot, but she does not think I should get much interest in the business, since it is her idea and she is raising the money. Again, she has NO business experience or has worked in a food service. She is nice and generous in a showy way… but doesn’t like to get her hands dirty with menial type work.

    If I decide to do this restaurant with her ( I need to make some $$$), this means that my own projects will be put on hold. She has attorneys and consultants to represent her, I do not. Even so I am a bit savvy and can hold my own in talks, I feel one of these consultants are the ones who messed with my passport in the dream.

    Can anyone tell me meaning of mouths full of square teeth? and have a beautiful poo and the wood in the toilet.
