When the decay reaches the pulp restoring the teeth is an option. The upper front teeth would fall out at 7, the lower front teeth at 6. That is quite a while to go without teeth. Placing replacement teeth should be considered. The hole in the front of the mouth will likely alter tongue function in speech and swallowing.
