- I once had this dream where my two front teeth grew rapidly until they were roughly the size of golf balls. I had effectively morphed some sort of walrus/squirrel/Sarah Jessica Parker hybrid--which, I assure you, was highly unflattering. The strangest part, however, was that my dream friends and dream family seemed entirely unfazed by this sudden development, as though spontaneously growing bones were a normal part of the human experience. I spent the majority of the dream attempting to explain to them that I needed help, but my oversized incisors muffled all attempts at communication. I woke up feeling frustrated and refused to talk to my real family for days.
- Another dental dream I had involved chewing gum, although the gum didn't actually start out as the main focus of the dream. I was going about my daily business (or at least, whatever passes for "daily business" in the dream world), when it dawned on me that I was chewing gum. For the duration of the dream, regardless of my activities, I continued mindlessly chomping away. As the dream progressed, the gum lost its flavor and became increasingly difficult to chew. Yet, for reasons unknown, I felt compelled to continue my relentless mastication efforts until I could no longer move my jaw. When I awoke, my jaw was clenched and aching. My desire to indulge in chewing gum ever again remains greatly diminished, even to this day.
- I have also experienced straight-up "dentist drilling into my face" dreams. I don't especially wish to delve into the details of such dreams. That $#%t's intense, bro.
The above are merely some of the various dental dreams I've had over the years. I will share more as time goes on, so stay tuned!
