Fluoride

Fluoride is a naturally occurring chemical that has been found to fortify the enamel matrix (shell) of teeth, which helps prevent decay. Most Canadian communities have some form of fluoridation in their water supply. Interestingly, some communities require their drinking water to be de-fluoridated, as the fluoride content is too high. Some private wells may not have fluoride, so it is important to know what is in your drinking water.
