Usually what comes out of a person’s mouth refers to words being spoken. Teeth falling out easily can suggest ‘loose words’ or carelessly spoken words. We also have an expression saying, ‘it’s like pulling teeth’ – in reference to the difficulty one might be having in getting any information out of a person. Where the teeth just fall out, it can thus be implied that you are much too free in giving out information. This usually applies to information that is of a very personal nature.
The family member would represent an aspect of yourself, one that could very generally speaking be regarded as an idea you have that is very relative – meaning that while it might be ok in one kind of situation, it might not be so in another. Thus the idea that you could be speaking out too freely may be a seen in relative terms. (a family member loosing all her teeth)
Hiding in the closet could be suggesting an emotionally felt feeling of embarrassment or shame about what has come out of your mouth. A closed closet in which to hide does represent the mind in darkness. Thus the scene could be showing that when this embarrassment is hidden in a way that your mind sheds no light – no knowledge or intelligence – upon this feeling of giving out information to freely and the resulting embarrassment – you could see yourself emotionally emerging as if you had not spoken too freely. (she came out with a full set of teeth) [The only problem with this is that it seems to be leaving a feeling unacknowledged or unexposed. This is rarely a good policy. One needs to be very aware of all feeling we have.]
If you wish to hear the Lord’s message it is best to regard teeth in dreams from the perspective of the function God gave them. Teeth are mean to allow us to chew, digest and process or make sense of, new food for thought that comes our way. To do this mentally we use our existing intelligence – all the knowledge, information and data we already have. Thus where teeth are lost, we are doing something that is taking away our appearance of having intelligence. This would apply to things said without thinking.
On a physical level of intelligence, the teeth can represent friends and acquaintance who are our sources of information. Thus a loss of teeth can mean a loss of friends and acquaintances.
