The character that pulls or fixes your teeth is associated with the side of you that cares for ‘what happens with the mouth,’ like expression. If pain or blood is involved, the dream is exploring the idea of painful communication, where ‘pulling teeth’ symbolizes your frustration and inability to change your expression. Associated with teeth, it can also represent enlightenment. See Teeth under Anatomy and Body Parts, and the Wise Man and Wise Woman under Archetypes and Universal Characters.
