MY LEAST FAVORITE REOCCURRING DREAM
- •About once a week (or more depending on stress level) I dream that my teeth are falling out.
- •I think this is a pretty typical stress dream.
- •But, I have four fake teeth.Two dental implants on the bottom and two Maryland bridges on top (on either side of middle teeth).
- •I just didn't have these adult teeth, so no trauma or anything like that.Genes are the culprit here, my mom is also missing the same teeth.
- •It is the top teeth that concern me.👀👀👀👀
- •Maryland bridges are semi-permanent. I got them done when I was 18 (wore a flipper with teeth on them prior to this).
- •Most dentists say that bridges will last at least 4 years, but can last longer.I'm too scared to Google this, though.😱
- •This stat is always in the back of my mind.In the months leading up to our wedding I was convinced my teeth would fall out on the day of our vows.
- •Basically, any big event in my life I think oh no this is it. My teeth are done. They are calling it quits. Clocking out early.
- •All of this is why I think my teeth dreams go a bit further that most other people's versions (so I assume).
- •Once I discover that my teeth have separated from my person in these dreams I usually go into problem solving mode.
- •Most recently, my solutions have included: handing them to my boss, putting them in my pocket, and in one situation, keeping the tooth in place with my tongue while still attempting to continue a conversation.
- •Most times I wake up from the dream checking my mouth to make sure my teeth are still in place.
- •With all this being said, my mom has had her bridges in for over 30 years with no issues.
- •And I have started the process of replacing the bridges with dental implants.🎉💸🎉💸
- •Now I'm wondering if I need to look into LASIK eye surgery to put an end to my dreams where I'm trying to put in my contacts and they are the size of cereal bowls.¯\_(ツ)_/¯
