DreamsMaster: This is a great dream to explore both literally and symbolically.
On a literal level, dreaming of brushing teeth could mean you need to pay more attention to your oral hygiene. For example, maybe you’ve recently experienced a toothache, or perhaps you’ve noticed people subtly moving further away from you when you speak (i.e., bad breath).
If nothing fits at the literal level, next take a look at some metaphors and symbols associated with teeth. For example:
– Teeth in a dream often symbolize power or strength. In this context, to brush them could represent the desire to enhance these qualities.
– Teeth may also represent our self-image, or our presentation to the outer world. Were you brushing in front of a mirror? In this context, brushing your teeth could represent a need to “brush up on” your image in a business or personal relationship.
The feeling you had in the dream as you brushed as well as what was on your mind the night of the dream will provide additional clues to the dream’s meaning.
