The Spiritual Meaning of Teeth

An effective and sustainable holistic health is the key to understand the proper balance in your life. We often hear that there is an intimate spiritual connection between the body and soul. Simply put, a minor disturbance in one interdependent part of our body can disturb the spiritual and mental rhythm alongside.

Teeth, the biographers of our life, are the representatives of our personality. They symbolize the basis of holistic oral health. Physically, teeth provide nourishment to the body by grinding food and acting as a gateway to stomach. Spiritually, teeth are involved in the spiritual development by serving as stoic storehouses.

Do you have any idea about what the spiritual meaning of teeth is? The spiritual meaning of teeth helps you determine the root cause of disturbed dental health.

Dental Interventions can cause several problems:

Dental problems, such as tooth decay, cavity, inexplicable toothache, and tooth abscess or infection can be treated by surgical interventions which do not address the root cause of dental problems.

When a dentist does not identify the root cause of a certain dental problem, it can lead to unresolved energetic influence. However, some of the following problems occur with an unknown root cause:

  • The problems can re-emerge at the same place, such as ongoing tooth decay, cavity, failed root implants.
  • Problem occurring on the nearby tooth or gum on the same meridian.
  • A problem can be stirred up somewhere else in the body.

Therefore, it is important to understand the root cause, both physically (lack of nutrients in the body) and metaphysically (the presence of suppressed emotions) which share an intimate connection.

The Spiritual meaning of teeth

Being the most dense matter of our body, teeth are believed to have some kind of suppressed emotional energy that needs to be released. Moreover, teeth are more prone to energetic burden and physical pressure.

Cavities or dental caries try to alert you that something, in your life, needs to be changed. Holistic health can help us determine what our teeth “really” need. Holistic approaches, such as spiritual healing, exercise, herbs, can be used to prevent the root cause of cavities.

The spiritual meaning of tooth decay explains that you hardly stick to your routine or not at all. You refuse to accept your creative needs because you do not trust yourself. The spiritual meaning of tooth decay further illustrates the lack of self-confidence and trust.

The Teeth Meridians Chart 

According to The Traditional Chinese Medicine’s Meridian System, an organ of the body is connected with each tooth and holds certain emotions which in turn, are influenced by teeth. This can be explained better by Teeth Meridians Chart.

Dr.Michele Caffin has also developed the Psycho-Social Teeth chart which shows an interconnection with teeth and psychological themes
