I am curiouse though at all the teeth problems that seem to be going round at the moment among this group....perhaps we can try and figure out if it is significant/symbolic of something so as to help others not have to go through so much suffering??
I’ve put the following quotes from Lise Bourbeau and Louise Hay in a separate thread for two reasons. First, I think they could be useful to many people, and second, a separate thread might help more people to find the information. Hay and Bourbeau both offer some useful information that can help us to understand what our bodies are telling us. Although they are sometimes a bit new-agey, I have found both writers to be quite accurate with their analyses.
Louise Hay on teeth:
Teeth represent decisions.
Problems with teeth: longstanding indecisiveness. Inability to break down ideas for analysis and decisions.
Lise Bourbeau on teeth:
The following conditions are considered problematic: pain that comes from decayed or broken teeth, grinding of the teeth or crooked teeth.
As teeth are used to pulverize and pound food, teeth problems indicate difficulty pondering new information, ideas or situations. Hence, problems with the teeth indicate fear of making incorrect decisions. Teeth are also used to bite; therefore, a person with a tooth problem might feel incapable of defending himself.
According to Dr Michele Caffin, a prominent French oral surgeon:
The eight teeth on the upper right side are linked with the desire to express oneself outwardly; a problem with one of these teeth indicates difficulty in finding one’s place in the outside world.
The eight teeth in the upper left side are linked with the desire to show what a person carries inside; a problem with one of these teeth therefore expresses difficulty in fulfilling one’s desire to be.
The eight teeth on the lower right side are tied in with the solidification of something, such as work; a problem with one of these teeth therefore indicates a problem with making concrete plans or getting one’s self on solid ground.
The eight teeth on the lower left side are linked with the realization of a person’s emotional sensitivity; a problem with one of these teeth indicates lack of emotional recognition within the family.
The message from misaligned teeth is also related to the above mentioned.
The right side of the body controls the male aspect and linked to our relationship with our father. Dental problems on the right side indicate unresolved father issues. […] Dental problems on the left side […] are an indication of unresolved issues with your mother.
The upper incisors (four front teeth) represent the spot you want to occupy in relation to your parents, whose position is represented by the lower incisors. Dental problems in this area indicate an inability to sink your teeth into what you are doing in order to achieve the outcomes you desire. Learn to look at events as they are. If need be, accept the help of others to sharpen your discernment. […]
If the incisors are worn or eroded, you are letting people close to you wear you down. If you can identify with this, it is because you have low self-worth and difficulty expressing yourself. Don’t be so critical of yourself. You also want others to change. The best way to stop wearing yourself out is to love and accept yourself and those close to you.
Bruxism, or grinding of the teeth, generally occurs during sleep as the mind ruminates about all the anger and tension that you kept inside during your waking hours. […] You must decide to handle this anger before it becomes a bigger problem than simple bruxism.
