Teeth, like bones, are hard and white and survive the decomposition of the flesh. They are a symbol of the life force.
Archaic hunters and ancient peoples wore tooth necklaces to acquire the vitality of animals and sometimes also human teeth, pierced like beads and endowed with deep symbolic meaning.
There were also initiation rituals in which the individual’s teeth were knocked out, suggesting that something of the old way of being had to be sacrificed to embrace a new reality. Something like this is also suggested in our time with the title of “wisdom teeth”.
On a magical level, the idea of a tooth as a treasure still lives on and continues to seduce us.
