Fluoride Water Test
Fluoride is a naturally-occurring mineral and it is often added to community water supplies. But too much fluoride in the water can result in dark, mottled teeth or loss of calcium from the bones.
Is Fluoride in My Water Harmful?
Fluoride is present in nearly all waters and is not harmful in small quantities. In some communities, fluoride is added to the water as a way of preventing tooth decay. Too much fluoride in a community water supply or well can cause a discoloration of a child’s teeth. Consuming too much fluoride over a long term can damage bones and joints. If your water has too much fluoride, you should consider installing a filter that can remove this mineral from water used for cooking or drinking.
