Female overseas health insurance policyholders may be more reluctant to visit the dentist than their male counterparts.
According to new figures released by the NHS Information Centre and the Office for National Statistics, one in five women in the UK suffers from extreme dental anxiety.
However, just one in ten men has the same fear, the data revealed.
The problem is worse in younger patients, with 15 per cent of 16 to 24-year-olds reporting extreme anxiety compared to nine per cent of those over the age of 85.
However, despite their worries, it seems adults are taking better care of their teeth today than they were 30 years ago.
Indeed, one in 17 people in England have no natural teeth, compared to three in ten in 1978.
Although the figures are higher in Wales, with one in ten having no natural teeth, this is still an improvement on 1978 when one third of people were toothless.
People in managerial and professional households were found to have the best level of oral health.
