3 Healthy Choices for Easter Treats in the Motor City

Spring is soon to arrive in Metro Detroit! Springtime in the Motor City always brings colorful flowers, warmer weather, Detroit Tiger baseball, and treats for Easter. The staff at DeCapite Family and Cosmetic Dentistry is excited about the freshness of spring, especially when our patients in the Livonia, Redford, Dearborn Heights, Plymouth, and surrounding Metro Detroit suburbs decide to choose healthier options for themselves and for their family!

Easter Sunday brings lots of temptations when chocolate bunnies and marshmallow treats abound. We know our patients will try to make good decisions for their dental health as well as for their overall health.

Dr. Jim DeCapite offers three healthy choices for Easter treat choices for our patients in the Motor City:

  • Fresh fruit: Apple slices are a sweet – and healthy – treat! Crunchy fruit is good for the teeth as well. With a fibrous texture and high in fiber and water, fresh fruit such as a juicy, raw apple is great for the teeth and can be fun to eat!
  • Sugarless gum: Kids and adults alike love chewing gum. Jim DeCapite wants his patients to look for the ADA seal of approval on sugarless gum. The dental association approves only sugarless gum, knowing that it can be a healthy and enjoyable treat. Chewing sugarless gum increases the flow of saliva, reduces plaque acid, strengthens the teeth, and reduces tooth decay.
  • Raw, crunchy vegetables: What says “Easter Bunny” more than a handful of raw carrots? Have fun with shapes, forming bunny ears and smiling faces with crunchy, raw vegetables such as celery and leafy greens. Do not tell the kids, but carrots are high in fiber and vitamin A!

The staff at DeCapite Family and Cosmetic Dentistry wishes everyone in Southeast Michigan a very happy Easter and a wonderful warm spring! Enjoy family and friends during the spring holiday and make healthy choices always every single day.
