Metaphysical Meanings of Molars and Premolars

The metaphysical meanings of molar and premolar teeth are different for every individual. However, there are some common themes and widely accepted frameworks for interpretation.

Molars and premolars are your most powerful teeth, the grinders and chewers.

Energetically, these big back teeth help you to process the challenges in your life. 

Meridian meaning of molars

The meridian system of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) treats molars and premolars differently from the rest of your teeth. The meridians for each pair vary according to whether they are in the upper or lower jaw and the right or left side. 

Upper molars and lower pre molars are on the Stomach and Spleen meridians on the left side or Pancreas on the right side. These meridians are associated with emotions including anxiety, self-punishment, hate and  low self worth.

Lower molars and upper premolars are on the Lung (associated with grief and sadness) and Large Intestine meridians (associated with feeling compulsive, trapped, controlling or overcritical).

When you are trying to understand what is going on metaphysically with a molar or premolar, it’s helpful to take into whether it’s on the top or bottom jaw, and right or left side.

Metaphysical meanings of molars and premolar teeth

Psychosocial meanings of molars and premolars

 Dr Michele Caffin’s psychosocial framework relates each type of tooth to a particular aspect of your life. You can explore each of these interpretations in more detail by cross-referencing with the meanings of right and left, upper and lower quadrants of the mouth explained here.

 The first premolars (teeth numbers 5, 12, 21, 28) relate to your ego, your identity and your desires.

 It’s common practice for orthodontists to extract the first premolars of young teenagers with crowded teeth. But metaphysically, missing these teeth can weaken your sense of self and may result in submitting to authority figures even if you don’t want to. 

 The second premolars (4,13,20,29)  relate to your creativity, hobbies and children. 

 These teeth can start to experience problems when the responsibilities of adult life, particularly parenting start to crowd out your own interest. 

The first molars (3,14,19,30)  relate to status and expression.

 These teeth can be affected by how you speak up for yourself at work or at home.

The second molars (2,15,18,31) relate to relationships and daily life.

 There is a close relationship between these back molars and wisdom teeth (which I’ll focus on in the next video and blog in this series). 

——————————

But these two frameworks (TCM and psychosocial) are just starting points for understanding and healing your teeth and gums, they are not sufficient by themselves. You need to be a detective, investigating the unique personal influences on your own teeth and gum symptoms.

 

Are mouth infections and abscesses influenced by anger?

Making sense of symptoms

Chronic oral health symptoms can be the embodiment of an emotional or psychosocial pattern. It’s common to be able to trace your adult teeth and gums problems back to patterns that emerged in childhood or adolescence as a survival strategy.

You may have spend years consciously try to change the emotional pattern with therapy, trauma healing or emotional expression, yet the physical pattern can persist in your mouth.  

Angry Abscesses

Abscesses and infections in your mouth may indicate a pattern of suppressed frustration or anger.

The abscess may flare up if you are triggered into anger in your current circumstances, or it can be a long low simmer from earlier in your life.

Look at the particular teeth adjacent to the infection to help you make sense of it.

For example, on your left side molars or premolars an abscess may be in response to a toxic intimate relationship or unhealthy family dynamic.

Infected molars or premolars on your right side are more likely to be assocated with work related frustration or injustice in the public sphere.

Is gum health influenced by security and stability?

Gum insecurity

Gum problems around molars and premolars may indicate a lack of stability or security in relation to the particular issues governing those teeth. 

Gum issues adjacent to premolar #5 could relate to insecure employment, unemployment or underemployment.

Gum issues around molar #19 may relate to insecurity in a romantic relationship,  such as feeling jealous or betrayed.

Misaligned  molars

When your upper and lower molars aren’t vertically aligned enough to chew properly,  it may represent a resistance or block to deeply engaging with life challenges, either in the past or as an ongoing pattern. 

For example, if your lower jaw skews to your right indicate that you have avoided emotions, or not been processing issues, around family and intimate relationships.

Or if your lower jaw is skewing left perhaps you have avoided career or economic responsibilities or had difficulty with pursuing your professional or academic ambitions. 

Could your crossbite be influenced by emotional avoidance?

What’s next?

Please don’t take these suggestions about how to interpret your molar and premolar issues too literally.

They should be considered as prompts for self examination, and not acted on as a reliable diagnosis for yourself and especially not for anyone else.

Metaphysical Healing for Teeth and Gums

Metaphysical healing teeth and gums can help boost the effectiveness and sustainability of dental procedures as well as natural approaches to oral such as health herbs or diet, anatomical adjustments to your breath or jaw muscles, optimising your oral hygiene rituals… or a necessary dental procedure. 

In this video I lay out some guidelines for applying spiritual healing concepts to teeth and gums. There are strengths and limitations of using existing frameworks of metaphysical meanings to symptoms, which I explain in relation to the four quadrants of your mouth: the upper and lower jaws and the right and left sides. Finally I’ll provide some practical examples of how to work with metaphysical meanings to help with healing your own symptoms.

This video series is all about the metaphysical or non-physical, influences on your oral health, but its important to remember to provide physical support for your teeth.  If you have intense or constant pain, or other serious symptoms please visit a dental professional. 

Interpreting the quadrants of your mouth

Metaphysically and dentally, you can divide your mouth horizontally into upper jaw (maxilla) and lower jaw (mandible); and vertically into right and left sides. 

Upper Jaw

Your upper jaw is about dreams and intentions, it represents what you want and wish for, the upper jaw is where you set goals and visualise the future. Having symptoms concentrated in your upper jaw can indicate a problem with knowing or accepting your dreams or desires.

Lower Jaw

Your lower jaw is about action, speaking your truth, and qualities of  courage, authenticity, decisiveness. Symptoms in your lower jaw can suggest you have held back from speaking out or taking action. 

TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint)

Your TMJ joint, the hinge between upper and lower jaw, represents the connection between your desires and your actions. It can embody your fears, your impulsiveness or your hesitation. Symptoms such as TMJ disorder, a clicking jaw or teeth grinding can indicate resentment or anger.

In many healing traditions the Right side of the body is associated with  masculine energies or your relationship with your father while the Left side is associated with feminine energies or your relationship with your mother.

However, I find it’s not usually helpful to take such a gender-essentialist interpretation of these associations with the sides of your mouth. 

Instead, the ancient Chinese concept of yin and yang can be more meaningful.

Right side of your mouth

The energy of the right side of your mouth may tend to be more yang: active, outward, professional, career, logical thinking. 

Left side of your mouth

The energy of the left side of your mouth may tend to be more yin:  inner world, intuitive, family, children, hobbies, creativity.

But knowing the traditional associations with different parts of your mouth is just a starting point for spiritual healing, not a solution or cure in itself .

Guidelines for spiritual healing

As a holistic oral health coach, I may refer to existing metaphysical frameworks such as Traditional Chinese Medicine’s meridian system, Dr Michele Caffin’s psychosocial system and correlations identified by Louise Hay, Evette Rose and others as starting points for understanding the metaphysical influences on your oral health. These frameworks are most helpful when inspiring what questions to explore, rather being relied on for answers. 

Think of these existing associations as story prompts that can help you explore your own childhood and adult experiences, your family patterns  and ancestral lineage. 

Parts of your unique story might come to you in a dream, or as a memory from a past life. 

Your story can emerge from your visioning, or be picked up from the wider culture. 

Finding your healing story this way can give you a delicate, imaginative tool for healing. 

For the purposes of healing, it doesn’t necessarily matter whether your healing story is true or accurate in order to transform your relationship with your oral health.

However, it can feel intoxicating to finally make sense of your symptoms with a compelling metaphysical interpretation.

That intoxication can lead you to give your healing story more weight than it can hold. 

It may not be wise to use your healing story to determine your identity, and you should certainly be very careful before going public with blame or claims. 

Before you take your healing story out of the safe space of your healing work, (ie before you share it anywhere beyond your journal or a confidential therapeutic conversation) ensure you have receipts.

Without corroboration, or evidence, going public with your healing story could potentially cause further harm, if not to you, then to others. 
Find your unique oral health healing story

Your unique metaphysical meanings

Journalling can be one way to help you develop traditional associations into a healing story that can help you to relieve your symptoms and transform your oral health. 

Think of your symptoms as metaphors you can apply to the associations.  Make a list of words that describe your symptoms:

eg blocking or eroding or aggravating, deep or shallow, nagging, intermittent, subtle, overwhelming, irritating, invasive, unbalanced, stuck etc…

Once you’ve written down the words that describe your symptoms, reread each word and think about the non-symptom experiences in your life that those words could also be metaphors for.  A thesaurus or synonym search might be helpful.

Understanding the metaphysical meaning of your teeth issues can be like putting together a jigsaw puzzle with a picture that is mostly blue sky.  You have to test many possibilities to find the right fit.

With relaxed curiosity and a playful spirit you can test your symptom’s metaphors against the associations of their placement in your mouth.

A throbbing toothache in your upper left jaw

For example: if you have a throbbing toothache in your left upper jaw… think about anything in your personal life that feels overwhelming, or a nagging desire that remains unfulfilled.  Have you had any relationships that feel like this, or felt like this in the past, especially within your family or intimate circle? 

A throbbing toothache in your lower right jaw

If the throbbing toothache is taking over your lower right side consider whether your work life is demanding or whether you’ve made a career move you regret. Are you uncomfortable now or in the past with anyone in a position of authority, or anyone in a fatherly role  or acting in domineering way?

Keep brainstorming metaphors and experimenting with associations. Don’t be afraid to extend your pool of possible healing stories by drawing on memories, dreams, insights from other people, even song lyrics that catch your ear!

 

Spiritual Healing Guidelines for teeth and gums

Recognising your own healing story

You won’t always recognise your story right away.

Sometimes you will think: not this old trauma, surely my 20 years of therapy and healing resolved this by now.
Sometimes you will think: that’s too trivial, I don’t have enough emotional attachment for this to explain my symptoms.
Sometimes it can take weeks of chewing on these ideas before you get clarity.

We are in an unprecedented moment. 

Not only are we adapting to a complete change in daily life, but we are in a time where taking care of normal, routine things like oral health may just have fallen to the wayside. 
 
Many dental associations around the world are advising their region or their country to suspend regular dental services and only provide emergency dental care.
There will likely not be any non-emergency dental treatment available in most places for quite some time.
And so, in some ways, we really are on our own.
 
That makes this a great time to bring natural oral health into the mainstream conversation about how we care for our teeth.

Your mouth is a vulnerable place.

The mouth is very vulnerable to infection, and it is part of our immune system.
The complex system of our mouth – the saliva, gums, mucous membranes, teeth and jaw – all of that is within itself an immune system, which is connected to the bigger immune system of our body. It’s very close to our nose.
Our mouths are one of the vectors where we can potentially inhale little droplets of virus that might stay in the air for up to three hours, so we really do need to be taking good care of our mouth.
This means being extra careful with brushing and flossing.  It means not causing bleeding if you can avoid it. 
It helps if you can keep the jaw relaxed so that you’re not risking cracking or chipping a tooth, or even losing a filling because of tension.

Stress and tension is markedly high.

On top of the limitations for professional dental care, stress may be at an all-time high for us.
We may be taking on the stress of others as well as our own.  Did you know that we sometimes actually store stress in our jaws and teeth?!
 
All of this fear around the pandemic may lead to people clenching their jaw even more than usual, which can cause cracks, chips, and toothache nerve pressure.
Jaw tension is then being exacerbated.  With conventional dental care unavailable to handle non-emergency situations, it becomes even more important to do some jaw self-care.

You’re not powerless in this.

Fortunately, there are some simple, basic things we can do on our own at home to reduce the need for dental intervention.
A fabulous way of mitigating both our oral health needs, as well as the intensified stress we may be under, is to practice jaw massage and relaxation.

You can relax your jaw every evening with jaw massage.

I recommend that you go slowly, mindfully and gently. Pay attention to your breath.
Notice how your jaw, and your psyche, are feeling as you go.  Think of this as a loving act of self-care, as well as prime support for your oral health and well-being.
As you proceed through the steps below, imagine that there’s a healing light coming out through your fingertips like a spotlight shining through the tissue of your cheeks, into your jaw and into your gums.
Here are the steps involved:
1. Massage the TMJ joint (the hinge between your upper and lower jaw, in front of your ear)
2. Massage along the upper jaw line
3. Massage along the lower jaw line
4. Massage underneath the lower jaw line
5. Massage around the eye sockets and temples
6. Massage over the ears, and follow base of skull to the occipital bone where the spine enters the skull, and extend the massage to your scalp, neck and shoulders as desired.
(For full step-by-step instructions on jaw relaxation, have a peek at my video on this)

This is truly self-care at its best.

If you practice this jaw relaxation daily, you can greatly reduce the likelihood of clenching and grinding.  You can avoid the potential risk of unnecessary damage to your teeth and jaw.
 
And this practice helps to center you.  When you add in your own healing intentions, it connects you more deeply to your body and overall sense of well-being.
 
Not only does this help stop the clenching and grinding, but can even support cracks in the teeth to heal whilst avoiding chipping in general.
 
It’s so lovely to do just before you go to sleep at night. You can relax the jaw for the night so that you don’t clench or grind in your sleep.  It allows you to release the tension of the day.
 
Jaw relaxation another tool for you in your dental health self help regimen.  Combine this with a dental nutritional protocol and overall dental hygiene, and you can reap the benefits afforded by better oral health.
 
You can physically reduce stress and tension to help foster greater relaxation, which we all need a bit more of at the moment, don’t we!

Horse teeth vs human teeth

Horse teeth vs human teeth

This is a guest post written by my good friend Trisha Wren from Equine Energetics. 

If you don’t have a horse, or haven’t spent much time around them, you may not have given much thought to their teeth and how they differ from human teeth.

There’s the obvious of course – they are much bigger (which I’ll come back to later)!  And, horses are herbivores, not carnivores, which also changes things up.  Since they don’t have opposable thumbs they also use their teeth for things that humans don’t, like grooming each other or attacking each predators.

How horse teeth are different from human teeth

Where humans have a maximum of 32 teeth, horses can have up to 42.  They have more incisors (12) – required for grazing, and nibbling – and more molars (24).  They can also (depending on sex) have canines and wolf teeth.

Unlike humans, horses also have a large gap (the interdental space), top and bottom, between their incisors and molars.  Conveniently for riders, the interdental space is where the bit sits.  (If you’re curious to find out what horses think about wearing a bit, you might be interested in this survey)

The only real similarity with human teeth is that horses also have two sets of teeth in their lifetime.  From two weeks old until they’re about five years old, they’ll have 24 baby teeth.  They have all their permanent/adult teeth by five years old.

Here’s the really different (and slightly freaky) thing that makes horse teeth so different from human teeth.

The adult teeth are 4-5 inches long – but most of that length is hidden away in the jaw.  The teeth grow downwards as the horse ages (and hopefully not slower than they’re getting worn away).  Because, unlike us, they are herbivores, those teeth are constantly getting worn down.

The incisors get worn down from the cutting part of grazing, as the horse snips the vegetation they’re interested in, and more so if the horse is grazing very short grass.

The molars grind against each other in a sideways motion, across the top and bottom jaws, to process the grass/food before swallowing.

What happens to horse teeth as they age?

Because of this wear and tear, horse teeth have a finite lifespan.

The older a horse gets, the more likely that teeth will start to fall out usually from their late twenties onwards, bearing in mind that horses can live into their forties. 

When this happens to domestic horses it means feeding them soft sloppy feed so they don’t need to chew, but for wild horses it can be a death sentence.

Here’s my horse Sioux. The first photo is of her front teeth in 2012 when she was 22, the second was taken in 2020, just before she turned 29 years old.

When does your horse need an equine dentist?

The fact that horses’ teeth grind against each other and wear down can cause problems.

The type of wear can be dependent on exactly what the horse is eating; for instance, wear patterns from a grass diet are different from a horse that is fed only grain.

Problems can also occur if either the hyoid or the temporomandibular joint are out of balance or tight, affecting how the horse uses his jaw and therefore how he chews.

A common problem is when sharp edges can develop on the outside edges of the upper molars.  This is at least partly because the upper jaw is slightly wider than the lower.

Horse teeth can also have similar issues to human teeth, such as impactions, damage leading to infection, or hereditary issues like having a parrot (overshot) mouth.

Horse can get cavities, although much less frequently than humans. 

Whilst they don’t brush or floss their teeth, most horses aren’t eating same the volume of sugary treats that humans do.  However, many pre-made horse feeds do have a high sugar content, to make them more palatable.

If a horse does get a cavity, the grinding motion of their eating pattern will likely either even things out or cause a piece of tooth to break off, so there is no need to drill and fill the cavity.

The most common result of a cavity for a horse is that food will get stuck in it.  If that food stays there, ie their eating motion doesn’t dislodge it, it may start to decay and can lead to infection.

Owners can recognise when there are issues with their horse’s teeth if any of the following happens:

  • He starts getting fussy about his feed
  • He’s dropping feed out of his mouth
  • He is ‘quidding’ (you’ll see little ‘balls’ of feed falling out of the mouth)
  • He doesn’t want to be bridled
  • He is responding differently to bit contact
  • He is head shy (not wanting his face or head to be touched).

What does an Equine Dentist do

For their comfort and good health, and so that we can bridle and ride them, domestic horses need the attentions of an equine dentist every 6-12 months. 

Most dentists will shine a torch in the horse’s mouth while the gag is on holding the mouth open – see the photo above – as well as feeling with their fingers for irregularities.  And, in the instance of infection, smell can play a part!

The horse dentist uses a large rasp to smooth or float any sharp edges or imbalances.

Natural remedies that help with horses’ teeth

Seaweed is a good natural supplement for supporting horses teeth as it

“contains generous levels of vitamins including A, B1, C, D and E. It is also rich in minerals calcium, potassium, zinc, iodine, magnesium, iron and copper as well as amino acids and trace elements. It contains high levels of calcium to help promote promote healthy skin, strong bones and teeth”  Hilton Herbs

(Note that in here in New Zealand only tiny amounts of seaweed are advised due to the high iodine content.)

Another helpful supplement for equine oral health is Limestone powder which is high in calcium, especially for young/growing animals.

For older horses, increased difficulty in chewing (because of wobbly or fewer teeth for instance) leads to decreased stomach acid production, so a good probiotic can be beneficial to support their overall health.

Has a dentist told you that your cavities or receding gums are your fault because you are drinking too much Coke, you don’t floss enough or you need to stop breastfeeding your baby? And you know that isn’t true!

I’m not going to blame you or shame you.
The underlying causes of your oral health issues are not your fault!

Nature or nurture, ancestry or environment, free will or systemic oppression, unconscious emotions or the degraded food system

How long does it take to remineralize cavities?

How long does it take to remineralize cavities?

How long does it take to remineralise cavities?

 

 How long it takes to remineralise cavities, reverse decay or regrow receding gums depends on three factors.

  1. Your symptoms, how severe they are and how long you’ve had them for
  2. How wholeheartedly you are able to engage with holistic healing strategies
  3. How much time you feel is available

 

The most thrilling part of my work as a natural oral health coach is hearing back from people who have successfully saved a tooth from a root canal or extraction by following the Holistic Tooth Fairy Way. 

 Unfortunately I can’t wave a magic wand to fix your dental problems overnight. Unlike visiting a dentist who spends no more than an hour or two to drill, fill and bill, working with natural healing strategies requires an ongoing commitment to self care. 

 Most of my coaching clients see significant improvement to their teeth within the first three months and their gums within six months. A few determined and lucky people have healed dramatically within days or weeks of starting the Holistic Tooth Fairy Way.

But there are no guarantees with this approach. Some people find that their symptoms remain stubbornly resistant to holistic healing. 

It’s not always possible to save a tooth so sometimes my work involves supporting people through their root canal or extraction.  

I help them come to clarity and peace with their decision. We tailor a personalised protocol to help prepare physically, emotionally and practically for the procedure they’ve chosen.  On the day of, and days after, the procedure I check in to offer whatever support is needed to help manage their physical recovery and common feelings of anxiety and grief etc.

Spiritual Meanings Behind Gum Disease

When is it too late to remineralise a cavity

One of the most frequently asked questions I get asked on the free 15 minute assessment call is whether they’ve left it too late to heal their tooth or gums holistically.

 The interesting thing about this question is that it most often comes from someone whose symptoms are comparatively mild, but because it’s an isolated incident and the worst thing they’ve experienced, they feel scared and hopeless.  

I was thinking about how to make a flow chart for deciding whether or not it’s too late to save a tooth. But even the most complicated tangle of factors would still be too simplistic to decide whether it’s worth trying to save your tooth.

Often it’s a matter of timing that makes the difference between being able to heal your teeth or gums holistically, or not. The severity of your symptoms and how long you’ve had them may be the deciding factor for  e.g. a three year old abscess is going to take longer to heal than a three week old infection.

When the problem has been going on for too long, there may be no time left to allow for the incremental improvements of holistic healing. 

If you let an intermittent niggle develop into an intolerable toothache, ongoing pain undermines your ability to stick to a healing protocol for long enough to take effect. 

The main consideration for deciding whether or not it’s too late, is not usually the seriousness of the problem, but your willingness to wholeheartedly commit to consistently practicing a Very Intensive Protocol.

Ultimately it’s rarely the symptoms that hold the answer to whether it’s too late to save your tooth or gum from a dental procedure, but how wholeheartedly you are able to engage with all four realms of the Holistic Tooth Fairy Way and practice nutrition, jaw relaxation, hygiene and metaphysical strategies consistently and persistently for as long as it takes to heal

Your ability to heal faster than the problems can progress may depend on whether you utilize ‘short cuts’ such as eating animal products or take a ‘fast track’ 1:1 intensive with a natural oral health coach 

That’s why we need to have a conversation so I can get a sense of who you are, not just what is happening in your mouth.

We need to consider not only your symptoms, oral health aspirations and dental diagnosis, but also your lifestyle, your priorities and your personality.

One thing I can can say for sure, is that the sooner you start applying your own personal Very Intensive Protocol the more flexibility and fun you can have in the healing process.

Finding time to remineralize cavities

Another aspect of time seems to make a significant impact on whether your tooth can be saved. It’s an intangible quality of spaciousness. Saving a tooth seems to require an attitude that there is enough time. Paradoxically, the more time you feel like you have, the faster a tooth seems to heal. 

Note I’m not talking about the amount of obligations you are juggling. Your days may be packed full with work, kids, side gigs and more, yet you can hold it lightly with a flexible, expansive way of thinking about your personal experience of time. 

I see this kind of spacious attitude to time working it’s teeth healing magic most effectively when you 

  • relax about what you ‘should’ be doing, 
  • let go of perfectionism and 
  • allow your intuition and body wisdom to guide your decisions from day to day. 

 I suppose a few souls grow up with this kind of graceful self-trust around time (I don’t know many). Most adults only learn about it later, if at all, usually as the result of a crisis that rearranges your priorities. 

For some people that crisis is embodied in our teeth.

Therefore, practicing the Holistic Tooth Fairy Way may involve embracing a new sense of time. 

Instead of toothbrushing in a mindlessly rush on your way to work or bed, you could find it becomes a moving meditation on self love and forgiveness. 

Instead of grabbing at snacks to graze on the go, you could find yourself sitting down to a home cooked meal and savoring it with grace.

How long to keep practicing?

One final FAQ about time is to do with how long to keep going with a teeth or gum healing protocol. 

Once your cavity has started to remineralize, the root canal has been averted or your gums begun to regrow…how long will you need to follow the Holistic Tooth Fairy Way?  

The answer depends on whether your oral health problems are isolated and straightforward or chronic and multifaceted.

Are your current symptoms unusual for you? Are you generally in good health overall?  Then you may find that after this particular problem is resolved you can return to your old habits with no further problems.

Or are you more like me and your teeth are your health weakness? Is your mouth the part of your body that will always be ready to communicate when something in your life is out of alignment with your highest good?

Then you may need to follow a modified version of your healing protocol for life.

 I’ve been practicing what I preach for 7 years and yet I still get symptoms flaring up in my mouth when I’m stressed. For as long as I want to keep my teeth, I’ll be following the Holistic Tooth Fairy Way… for the rest of my life.

Spiritual Meanings of Teeth

Spiritual Meanings of Teeth

Root cause vs immediate cause

 The biggest difference between holistic oral health coaching and mainstream dentistry may be coaching’s consideration of the spiritual meanings of teeth

The spiritual meanings of teeth can help you to identify the root cause of your symptoms. Understanding the root cause is key to effective, sustainable holistic healing. 

The immediate cause that takes you to the dentist might be decay, a cavity, a trauma, an infection or abscess, or a mysterious toothache. On observing any of these symptoms, dentist will probably respond with a surgical intervention. The cavity is filled, the root is canaled or the tooth extracted. 

However, this purely physical response leaves unresolved energetic influences.

Dental interventions don’t address the root cause, so it can often cause problems later.

Such problems can :

  • reappear in the same spot (eg failed root canals or implants, cavitation, ongoing decay),
  • refer to another part of the mouth (eg another tooth or gum on the same meridian), or
  • stir up trouble elsewhere in the body (often on the same meridian).

That’s why, with holistic coaching, we focus on understanding the root cause(s) of the symptoms, both physical and spiritual or metaphysical.

Teeth troubles are usually telling a complex story about interconnected influences including physical causes (eg certain nutrients lacking in your diet) and metaphysical causes (eg suppressed emotions from a childhood trauma).

Symptoms such as cavities are trying to alert you to something that needs to change in your life.

As we identify what your tooth really needs, we respond with appropriate strategies that meet those needs- that’s your personalised healing protocol.

We look to the root causes to decide which holistic strategies go into your protocol (eg herbs, exercises, spiritual healing etc).

Whereas the immediate cause or symptom tells us how intensely and for how long you need to apply the protocol.

Are your teeth trying to tell you something that you can’t quite make sense of?

In this free live Masterclass you’ll learn how to: 

  • Tell the difference between oral health symptoms and the underlying causes
  • Understand the metaphysical meanings of your teeth and gum issues
  • Practice a simple way to tune into your teeth that you can use any time
Spiritual Meanings Behind Gum Disease

Why look for spiritual meanings of teeth

Our teeth and gums need us to address both their metaphysical and the physical needs. 

Teeth are not only the gateway to our digestive system, they can also be a gateway to deeply transformative inner work and spiritual development. 

Our teeth act like stoic storehouses, holding onto suppressed or distorted emotional energy.  

My theory is that because teeth are some of the most dense matter in our physical bodies, they have an almost gravitational pull on emotional energy when it is suppressed instead of released.

Suppressing emotions is a survival tactic, so it makes sense that our body will compress those emotions somewhere secure, while we get on with doing what we have to to survive. 

When suppressed thoroughly enough, the energetic burden can accumulate for years. Sooner or later that stored emotional energy becomes embodied in the cells of our teeth even influencing the DNA to be passed down through families if we don’t release it first.

The energetic burden means the teeth are more vulnerable to physical pressures such as undernourishment, environmental toxins or simply wear and tear. That’s when teeth start clamoring for attention with symptoms. 

Not everyone’s teeth hold energy in this way. Some people store spiritual and emotional energy elsewhere in their bodies.

But for those of us plagued by chronic teeth troubles, it’s only when we address the metaphysical influences, that our teeth can finally heal.

Making sense of the spiritual meanings of teeth

Everyone’s mouth has a unique story that contains the solution to healing your symptoms. You just need to translate what your teeth are telling you, and then respond appropriately.

More and more people are turning to established metaphysical theories for understanding the spiritual meanings of teeth.

You may be familiar with writers such as Louise Hay or Evette Rose who offer spiritual meanings for different symptoms. However, the most well-known and long-standing theory of spiritual meanings for teeth comes from Traditional Chinese Medicine’s Meridian system.

teeth meridian chart
psychosocial teeth chart

You may be familiar with a version of the Teeth Meridians chart on the left that show the association between each tooth and the organs it’s linked to via the Meridians.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine each tooth is associated with an organ that is in turn associated with certain emotions, and so those feelings can influence, or be influenced by your teeth.

The Psycho-social Teeth chart on the right is a contemporary and complementary framework based on the work of Dr Michele Caffin.   This chart shows the links between each tooth and certain relationship dynamics or psychological themes.

All these systems can be used as basic vocabulary to help you start to make sense of why that particular tooth, or area of gum, is causing problems. 

But, if you have ever landed somewhere you don’t speak the language, you know the limits of just having some vocabulary when you need a nuanced conversation. 

You might be able to buy a ticket or find the bathroom, but you can’t really talk about anything abstract without good grammar, pronunciation and the kind of speed that comes with familiarity. 

Helpful as they are, Meridian and Psychosocial frameworks will only take you so far in understanding the underlying influences on your oral health.

To have an in depth, meaningful and ultimately useful conversation with your teeth and gums, you need more than just the charts.
