Teeth have symbolized many things throughout time. From the Vedic religion in ancient India, teeth have different meanings. Teeth that do not overlap and are perfectly aligned symbolize wonderful luck. If your teeth are slightly yellow but lean more toward white you will also have good luck. Whereas teeth that are completely brilliantly white are considered bad luck. Teeth that are crooked are also considered bad luck. If a person has thin teeth they are dangerous and untrustworthy. If a person had all their teeth they were going to be rich and famous. If a person has less than twenty-five teeth they will have health problems and be stressed. If a person has less than twenty-five teeth they will struggle and have hardships. Teeth that have gaps are a symbol of cheaters while teeth with a small gap symbolize talkativeness.
The Bambara tribe from Ancient West Africa felt that different teeth had different symbolic meanings. Incisors were a symbol of happiness and fame. The molars are a symbol of perseverance, while the canines symbolize hatred and hard work.
In modern times, teeth tattoos are common. If there is a tattoo of a molar it symbolizes progress. Wisdom teeth tattoos symbolize wisdom, and canine tattoos symbolize the wild.
Teeth symbols can be found in dental office logos, jewelry, tattoos. Some bakeries have tooth logos with the moniker sweet tooth in the logo also.
