I had a dream last night that i know has a great amount of importance. I just dont quit understand it. In my dream im traveling to a church where my teeth start to fall out. So I leave and my teeth continue to fall out. I then realize I dont even know where Im going b/c I dont even know where I am and then everything gets crazy I see a huge gas truck flipping in the air toward me, power lines falling everywhere, and people running in confusion. I want to go back to the chuch but cant b/c of the power lines. I ask a girl where i should go and she says that the direction im going is more chaotic and i should turn around but i dont and i end up stepping on a power line thats in water and i wake up. I dont know if i died or what. I just know I need to know what it means it driving me crazy

Well, yoshi has a point about the context. The symbols in your dreams hold significance to the person who dreamed it. Others can guess the significance, but only you can answer what it means to you when you think of them.
I'll first ask you some questions, and maybe I can get a better picture.
What do the teeth falling out mean to you? Were you hit in the face? If so, was there something odd about the person who hit you? If not, was there a particular reason that your teeth were falling out?
Are you a religious person? What religion are you? Were you forced to go to church as a child, or did you attend mass willingly? If catholic, do you go to confession often?
Who was this person who told you to turn back? Was it someone you knew? Was there something strange about this person? Could you see their face?
My interpretation of the dream from what I can see is this, although I think I'd have a far more accurate idea if I knew what the symbols mean to you. The teeth falling out tends to be associated with old age, and the steady decline that it brings. Perhaps you detest people without teeth, and you fear growing old or dying.
Running to the church seems to be an act of desperation. Church can be viewed as salvation, or sanctuary, or forgiveness. The fact that in your dream, the church was the 'place' in which you were safest, I would assume you view the church as a safe haven (perhaps the only).
Having left the church, you find yourself in danger again, which means perhaps you felt that at a certain point in your life, you felt safe but now you don't. The powerlines and the electricity is a testament to the danger you feel outside of this church.
The fact that you can't return, means that for whatever reason, this safe haven you had in your past is no longer made available for you (for a reason not clearly expressed in your dream).
The person who told you to turn back represents to you, in my opinion, as someone in your life who sees your danger and wishes to help you overcome it. Although, if this person didn't have a face and/or is a stranger to you, then it is a warning you give to yourself (or if it is particularly odd to you that he is a stranger, it could mean that you feel someone is trying to help, but you don't know who). Otherwise, you manifest the form of a warning by someone in your life who is trying to help you.
This 'danger' that you face, odds are, aren't as realistic as the ones in your dream, although the "type" of danger is something you feel threatens your very life in some manner (whether that be physically, financially, or socially).
Is this dream reoccuring?
My father, when he was probably only 10 years old, had a bad case of the measles. They isolated him, as to not contaminate anyone else. His parents could see him through glass. My dad kept having reoccuring nightmares in which he was in a spaceship traveling between planets with his parents when at a certain point, he realized there was nobody aboard except himself. The absolute terror of this coming from the fact that he was completely alone, which no doubt came from the fact that he was isolated because of his illness.
I encourage you to tell me more about your dream.

I Think my teeth falling out could mean two things ive gained a little weight and im subcousious about it and i heard it could mean a feeling of powerlessness which could apply to me as well. And there was no reason my teeth fell out i didnt get hit in the face they just feel out 2 by 2. I am religous but i dont think this dream had to do with that i do feel like church is a safe place though. It was a girl who told me to turn back but i didnt know who she was. I am making big choices in my life right now and i have been dreaming like crazy this past couple of days. my ex offered to allow me to stay with him for free and finish my degree b/c of my finacial struggles. I think this dream is trying to tell me no.

You probably already figured out what you dream means, but I have a dream dictionary here and it tells you to find what sticks out the most in your dream, which it seems was your teeth falling out and focus on that. It says id many teeth keep falling out it means...you should beware of careless accidents and possible sickness. Hope this helps. -JD
Running This might be a warning telling the dreamer that he must escape his current situation or he will be chased down or it could mean that you are feeling trapped or pressured in a real life relationship. It can also mean you feel stressed by school or work.
In general, dreams about losing teeth are common and suggest the dreamer feels powerless or out of control in a real life situation.
The universal symbol for emotions. How water looks and behaves in a dream is very significant. A dream of drinking cold water is a sign of good luck. Throwing or spilling water on anyone indicates a need to control your temper. Hot water foretells a season of social setbacks. Hearing or seeing running water predicts lasting happiness. A waterfall in your dream forecasts a happy rise in social status. Turbulent, choppy waters in which a dreamer fears being swamped or drowning symbolize that you are being overwhelmed emotionally.
If you dream of running away from home, you are trying to avoid an issue in your real life. Pretending it doesn't exist could make things worse - you will not solve problems until you face them head on. This dream also suggests that you are not taking or accepting responsibility for your actions. In cases where the dreamer's home life is very difficult, this dream can represent a straightforward wish to live in a happier place.
church represents the need for spiritual help or guidance or it could mean
a need to be appreciated by those you love.
fear Usually represents the urge to overcome a fear. This is done so by trying to find the root of the fear
kill This is not especially the 'bad' killing, but it can be. More often killing is the killing off of a habit or childish things. If it is the bad killing then the dream has killed of his will to live
Road This symbolizes a dreamers path to a goal. This is usually a long road Running The might be a warning telling the dreamer that he must escape his current situation or he will be chased down
Running The might be a warning telling the dreamer that he must escape his current situation or he will be chased down
To dream that you are in or part of a crowd means you need to make some space for yourself. It also suggests that you need to start thinking more for yourself instead of following others.
Dreams about death are not necessarily bad omens, but they usually represent anxious or angry feelings. To dream of your own death is actually positive - it means renewal and letting go of an old stage of life. This is also a common dream when you are getting over an illness - and it's a good sign that you are getting better. However, if you dream that you are dying slowly, you need to drastically change your routine and reenergize your life. To dream about the death of a loved one suggests that you are lacking a certain quality that the loved one represents.
Dreaming of an accident is a warning to pay attention to a certain situation in your real life before it gets out of control.
To dream that you were afraid to continue on in some situation signifies trouble in the home and failure in your school or professional life. To see others afraid in your dream signifies that one of your friends will be so wrapped up in his or her own problem that they will not be able to help you out with some favor.
