Dentures are typically more affordable than dental implants. They can also be made to look very nice. Another advantage of dentures is that they are usually finished faster than dental implants will be. While they have a few advantages, they are not the ideal option. Dentures do not support bone retention as well as dental implants, and they don’t facilitate natural eating and speaking the way that dental implants do either. Rest assured that Dr. Delahunty is phenomenal at getting dentures to fit right and look nice, however, we do encourage anyone who is a candidate to seriously consider dental implants.

A Look at the History of Murray City, Utah
Long ago, the region including and around Murray City used to be home to the Bannock, Goshute, Shoshone, and Paiute Native American tribes before it was resettled by Mormon pioneers in the late 1840s. The settlers scattered into a few different communities, including Cottonwood, Big Cottonwood, South Cottonwood, and the Mississippi Ward. The area slowly developed into a largely-agricultural community, but in the late 1860’s the discovery of a body of ore in the region shifted the economy to industry. After this, the city developed into a smelting town over the next few decades.
Following the advent of smelting, the railroad expanded throughout the region, as did trolley infrastructure and other main roads. Along these roads, business buildings gradually began to pop up. In 1870, the city established its first official post office, at this time still called the South Cottonwood Post Office. However, in 1883, the post office changed its name to Murray Post Office, after the civil war general Eli Murray, which gave the city its new name. That said, it was not officially recognized as a city – a processes called incorporation – until the early 1900s. In 1902, there was a major push for city independence, and Salt Lake County allowed the citizens to hold their own election. The County recognized the election results as official in November of that year, and in January of 1903, Murray City became a fully-recognized, incorporated city of its own.
Sadly, Murray City’s industry-based economy took a huge blow in the form of the 1930’s Great Depression, as did nearly the entire country. By 1940, nearly all of the smelters had closed down. It took about ten years or so for the city to build itself back up, but the addition of the Interstate Freeway System in the 1950s helped Murray City develop into a major retail location. For instance, the first main road built back in the late 1800s, now known as State Street, was the birthplace of auto giant Toyota. Today, Murray City remains a highly mercantile community.
A fun fact related to their retail prowess: if you were to visit the Fashion Place Mall, you would be standing in the same place where notorious serial killer Ted Bundy’s victim escaped his attack and was able to bring him to court. How’s that for some history?
