I have a reccuring dream where I loose my teeth, What does this mean???

you feel like you lack controll in your life, a feeling exaserbated by a heightened awareness of your ageing process.

Lost teeth always indicate that the dreamer has a castration complex. Sue, do you have a penis? http://www.umop.net/smileys/excited4.gif Message me.

they do? i dunno i don't have a penis but i have these dreams occasionally. only when certain things are happening. they are like a sexual anxiety counterpart to the "the final exam is today but i never went to class" dream. i didn't figure this out until pretty recently though.

The losing teeth = castration meme started with Freud, I think. He made it pretty clear:

The dream-work represents castration by baldness, hair-cutting, the loss of teeth, and beheading.

* The extraction of a tooth by another is usually to be interpreted as castration

...but it's a little ridiculous to take Siggy at face value in 2009, so sexual anxiety (or just anxiety in general) seems like a spot-on (and less phallocentric) interpretation.

my teeth dreams have only ever involved my teeth decaying until holes were left, or hanging by a thread. no extraction of teeth by another.

Do y'think maybe your dentist should know about this?

In the past few months I've had two dreams where I woke up from anesthesia during wisdom tooth extraction (minus the agonizing pain, thank god). I have a date with an oral surgeon in March, so I'm pretty paranoid about the whole thing.

funny u should ask, cabernet slobodan, because some of my teeth did not form correctly, including one in particular where i got a crown when i was 18. over christmas i had a horrendous toothache and i went to the dentist to get x-rays. she said it may be fractured and she expects that my tooth will crumble beneath the crown at some point and i will have to have it removed and an implant put in. (i want to know if i can get a gold-plated implant!). to me this was like a real "dream come true," but doesn't seem to be the cause of my teeth dreams. really they only come if i'm probably worrying about sex (o_O), even if i'm not fully conscious of my worries.

Aw, that sounds excruciating (and wickedly expensive). It sounds a little silly to lay down $500 for a crown that's likely to give you so little mileage, but I know next to nothing about such things. You should get a steel implant embedded with tiny diamonds so you can use it to sharpen knives and axes.

I don't have a right to complain when all I've got is a set of fully-formed but cavity-prone wisdom teeth.

well i got the crown 6 years ago on my parents' dental insurance. but when i went she drilled a hole through it so it's no longer nice. just temporarily filled back in until the tooth starts hurting again and i need to have it cracked open completely. will def consider the steel implant. i guess they make them all out of porcelain but why not have a catalog where you can buy ones made of different materials, like titanium or cubic zirconium or LEAD.

Schwwww (harbl), Sunday, 1 February 2009 20:15 (ten years ago) Permalink

maybe a carbon fiber implant so i can reduce the weight i'm carrying, without sacrificing strength

Schwwww (harbl), Sunday, 1 February 2009 20:28 (ten years ago) Permalink

oh wow they are made of titanium, not porcelain, i didn't know that at all

I had a dream about losing teeth a week ago. I've had it before. What the hell is wrong with Freud, how can Oedipus Complex or a Castration COmplex be at all relevant to today? Anxiety is definitely more likely knowing me. Freud is one part genius, 2 parts moron.

estela, Monday, 9 February 2009 03:55 (ten years ago) Permalink

do you think he would recant his tsk after i explained our bad situation for public health care in this country?

gangsa paradise (tehresa), Monday, 9 February 2009 03:58 (ten years ago) Permalink

or at least reassign the tsk to gov't instead of me?

he might say you feel abandoned by your father (the government), but before that he might have asked you to pay upfront for your session.

fuckfuckfuckfuck, so all 4 of my fully-formed wisdom teeth are coming out on May 1, which makes this my first surgery of my life and the first time I'll be under anesthesia. also the surgeon commented that I have a square jaw. was she hitting on me — y/n?

ok but what does this have to do with dreams and mental problems?????

goaty (harbl), Wednesday, 1 April 2009 02:19 (ten years ago) Permalink

um

well, Dr. Harbl, I'm a-scared of the very real possibility that dislodged bone fragments will poke through my gums in the weeks or months following the tooth pulling, causing me much mental distress and possibly nightmares.

bigstatusbrothers (unregistered), Wednesday, 1 April 2009 02:22 (ten years ago) Permalink

also your picture comes from a blog about bowel movements :P

Green bowel movement may be normal for a person that ingests a lot of black licorice
