Losing your teeth symbolizes the transition from baby teeth to adult teeth, and your two front teeth are not just central to showing your face/personality, but also to tearing into difficult-2-manage meat as a preliminary to preparing it (with grinding molars for becoming digestible.

You act without hesitation & decisively by taking your loose teeth out. The immediate result is that your adult coping skills (adequate aggression to insure that what you take in will nourish, stimulate/growth, and not poison you).
