I have also been to the dentist over the last week...twice. I have a crown that was bothering me so went in to have it examined. Nothing appeared wrong. The dentist filed it down a bit since it looked like it was raised a bit more than it should be and I went on my way. Well, last Saturday, I was eating a bagel and my crown literally fell out! So back to the dentist I went Monday morning. Fortunately, the crown was fine and she was able to cement it back into place.
I have had dreams over the last several years about many teeth falling out at once. To have that occur to even one tooth while awake sent a small chill down my spine.
The teeth dream can mean a number of things. Two of them are insecurity about a personal loss and someone in your life is sick. I can’t remember the exact day I had one but my guess is it was a time Livy was going through a rough patch and I felt useless trying to help her. Makes total sense. Not being able to make your child better is an awful feeling and does a number on your psyche.
To some extent, I have accepted that I won’t be able to stop her seizures today or even tomorrow. And I certainly won’t be able to make her walk. I suppose a bad tooth dream every now and again is a reminder that we are all human and that many things are out of our control.
