  • The pain in the teeth after 5 years of trauma is due to infection in the tooth. When trauma is there the pulp start getting necrosed slowly and slowly and it can take years and years before any symptoms are shown. In your case it took 5 years for the pulp to get necrosed ie the pulp is dead and is infected. The treatment for this is to go for Root Canal treatment in which the pulp will be removed and root canal filling is done and after that dental crowns are put on those teeth so save them from fracture as they are become brittle and are prone to breakage. For more info on root canal treatment you can read this article...... http://www.identalhub.com/article_when-is-root-canal-treatment-required-294.aspx
