the interpretation might be different in different cultures, although i'm willing to bet the basic archetype remains constant. maybe Oriental cultures have their own meaning for this, their symbolism being often unique...
The popular interpretation here is that it is a direct symbol of death and /or sorrow, either for oneself or someone close. psychologically, the teeth represent the way we face others, it is a symbol of our self esteem and self confidence (i.e. the smile and its readability). hence, losing one's teeth aims to one's troubles when facing others, or conflicts in our self image. this is the general archetypical approach, of course the context changes from person to person, maybe at one time we might feel under close scrutiny from others, or under pressure of some kind, this dream shows our concern for the way we project ourselves in front of others. as the teeth are something we choose to reveal, as opposed to our face, losing them is directly related to our self esteem and how we think other will percieve us.
