Why do people dream about losing teeth?

Dreams about losing teeth or hair are similar and are common dreams. As early as hundreds of years ago, a man named Artemidorus wrote a book called "The Interpretation of Dreams", in which he gave some explanations for tooth loss. For example, the loss of an upper tooth means that the owner of the family has lost status or power, while the loss of a lower tooth means that a slave or worker has been fired. This has a strong sense of hierarchy.

Since Freud, more and more researchers believe that dreaming about losing teeth means physical discomfort. In our country, showing teeth represents war and attack. In some areas, teeth are removed before burial after death, so losing teeth means the end of life.
