What does it mean when you dream about dentures?

You may be needing to “get your teeth into” something, or be “biting your way through” a situation. If you are being bitten, perhaps there is a struggle for control within yourself or within your relationships, personal or business. Losing your teeth relates to feeling that you have lost your personal power and your sense of control in your life. (See also Bite, Teeth).
