How many ppm of fluoride is my drinking water?

Ask your Dentist. Ask your dentist or preferably a pediatric dentist. Every water supplier is different. For example philadelphia's water supply is fluoridated but the over 60 municipalities that surround the city are not. This information usually available on your water company's web site. There's more to optimally balancing Fluoride than just water supply. Talk to dentist or pediatric dental specialist.
Dentist/water co. Normally your dentist will have some idea of the ppm Fluoride of the drinking water in your area, but the city/town water company would probably be the best source of that info. T i would also try the web, which might list that information throughout the state.
1 ppm. Fluoride level in optimally fluoridated municipal water supplies is 1 part per million.
Depends. It depends on where you live and what your water source is. If you're on city water, many times the city publishes the results of their water quality testing, and this would be one of the results they'd report. Our city mails this to us, but you might find it on the city website, or you could call your city offices and ask. Another resource might be your dentist. Good luck!
Locationally depend. It depends on where you live. You can either call your water provide and ask or you can probably look it up on line.

In reality you need a lot over a long time to have any problems. Read more...
