(CBS News) – Women in their 40s are more likely to fear the dentist more than any other age group, according to an ongoing University of Sydney study.

The study, now in its fifth year, shows that women of this age were most likely to have perceived a “traumatic dental experience, abuse, trauma and oro-facial trauma.” These women were also more likely to be depressed, have general anxiety, suffer from stress and also had trouble coping with pain, often perceiving pain in “alarmist ways” like it’s a catastrophe.
