Since then, the rate of tooth decay among Hong Kong residents has been greatly reduced. The fluoride content of tap water in Hong Kong is 0.5ppm (0.5 parts per million). As long as we drink boiled water, we can absorb fluoride from it and achieve the effect of preventing tooth decay. Foods such as tea and some seafoods contain fluoride.
