A toothpick in a dream may indicate that you are being picky. Toothpicks may also indicate the need to remove deeply embedded beliefs about a topic of communication before saying anything more. On the other hand, a toothpick may also comment on the need for assertive communication.
Used to pick at one’s words, removing the undesirable
To dream that you are using a toothpick refers to your role in the downfall of a friend.
If you merely see a toothpick in your dream (but don’t use it), it means you are too picky. You needlessly dwell on minor flaws, faults and unimportant issues.
Dreams of a toothpick are a message for you to pick your words carefully and edit your words mindfully. See Teeth.
