I have had this dream about three times now. The dream starts suddenly where my mouth feels sore and when I run my tongue over my teeth they feel loose. Some of my teeth disintegrate into bits similar to the bits left in your mouth after a dentist has been drilling. Other teeth can be pushed out of my mouth with my tongue. I then find that I am walking around crying with a pile of teeth in my hand. I feel very disorientated in the dream. When I look in the mirror at my gums, then I have molars growing where my other teeth have fallen out. My mouth only has molars even where my front teeth are supposed to be.
