From birth, if right from the intrauterine period, the mouth is the seat of sensory experiences that are fundamental for the development of our psyche. As psychoanalysts, we cannot limit ourselves to simply saying that we are dealing with the oral area or with the oral phase, since this area of the body is responsible for at least a dozen different functions, such as digestive, phonatory, respiratory and taste perception, just to name the most important ones. These multiple functions must constantly coexist in the double relational dimension with oneself and with others and in a reciprocal alternation between activities related to nutrition and those related to breathing. Starting from a patient’s dream, the present paper explores the meaning of experiences and fantasies about the mouth in the clinical dimension, comparing the main bibliographic sources on the subject.
Keywords: Mouth, psychic development, dream, mind/body relationship, early defensive fantasies, mind’s archaic areas, dream representation, teeth, voice
