The mouth is related to the ability to communicate with others, but also with the ability to breathe, to eat, to drink, and to kiss—in other words, to establish any external relationship. When you speak, you have the power to either be affectionate or aggressive toward the interlocutor with your words. Therefore, perhaps the dream is reminding you that you should not have said something or you need to express certain feelings verbally. Similarly, if you dream that you wash your face or brush your teeth, it means that your words do not match your true feelings. If the mouth is fleshy it will indicate a repressed desire to maintain an emotional relationship. On the contrary, to shut up and to utter no word at all when someone speaks reflects a refusal to communicate and a profound rejection of that person. According to Freud, besides a sex symbol, the mouth represents an immature childish fixation on verbal assault. Dreaming of a big mouth portends wealth; of a small one, poverty. To see someone with a twisted or deformed mouth portends a family dispute.
