Make a paste out of fresh ground cinnamon (powder is fine too), honey (optional if you don't have it) and water. Make sure it is actually pasty not watery. Apply a layer of it to the painful gums. Repeat as necessary. It works as a mild analgesic (helped me get through my Wisdom teeth pushing through, I still have them to this day)
Cinnamon has been known to help relieve toothache pain. Simply make a paste using five teaspoons of honey mixed with one teaspoon of cinnamon powder. Apply a small amount of this paste directly onto the aching tooth 2 or 3 times daily until the pain is relieved. You can store any extra paste in a small container at room temperature.
