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.

A Glimpse at the History of Taylorsville, Utah

Historically, Taylorsville is quite a young city, officially founded only in 1996. That said, Taylorsville was incorporated from some portions of the Kearns census-designated place (CDP) and the Taylorsville-Bennion CDP. There is some variation among communities about what exactly constitutes a CDP, but in general, these communities are not large enough to count as cities or towns, but they are fully incorporated and formally recognized population concentrations that, as their name implies, are counted in the state census as independent from other towns or cities.

The Kearns CDP had been built in 1942 when the U.S. Air Force determined that it needed to move its bases inland to avoid coastal attacks following the Pearl Harbor bombing. The Taylorsville-Bennion CDP was a name given to the two separate historic communities of – guess! – Taylorsville and Bennion, both of which were largely agricultural communities as their area of the Salt Lake Valley consisted mainly of plainland. All of these small settlements were, well, settled my Mormon Pioneers, who were led from Illinois to the Salt Lake Valley by Brigham Young in 1847, scattering off to inhabit different regions around what is now Salt Lake City. Until the mid-twentieth century, the boundaries and “formal” names of these three particular areas were vague and poorly understood.

By the 1980s, each of those CDPs had been growing rapidly, and many felt that that the South Lake County Commission was allowing the area to grow too quickly, particularly involving new apartment complexes. The first attempt to merge into a City of Taylorsville failed narrowly, but another push for full incorporation in 1995 succeeded, with the hopes that becoming a city would encourage some mitigated apartment growth, better law enforcement, and more controlled costs of county services. Some inhabitants of the previous CDPs were less than thrilled about the merge, but it is largely believed that the incorporation was for the best. At the time, a number of different names were considered, including Midvalley City and Oquirrh, but Taylorsville won out, retaining the namesake of John Taylor, the third established president of the Mormon church. That said, it’s been affectionately nicknamed “Centennial City” since it came to life so close to the turn of the century, in 1996, which was also, coincidentally, the centennial anniversary of the statehood recognition of Utah.
