Orajel is one of those things where if you need it, you’ll do whatever it takes to get it.
Even if it means driving to a convenience store in the middle of the night.
One of the wonderful things about 7-Eleven is that most stores are open 24 hours a day. So, you may be wondering – does 7-Eleven sell Orajel?
In this article, we’ll cover everything that you need to know!
Does 711 Sell Orajel?
Yes! We are happy to share that 7-Eleven does carry Orajel, so you shouldn’t hesitate to make a trip out if you are in need of relief.
That being said, only one size seems to be carried. So, you may wish to call ahead of time or have a backup plan in case your local 7-Eleven store has ran out of stock.
Thankfully, 7-Eleven also sells their own private label brand with the same active ingredient – benzocaine. So, even if the Orajel is out of stock, you will likely still find the 7-Select brand available, which should work just as well.

Note: In addition to Orajel, 7-Eleven also carries other pain medication such as Ibuprofen, Advil and Tylenol. While not as fast-acting as Orajel, each of these will be able to give you longer-lasting pain relief.
How Much Does Orajel Cost At 7-Eleven?
Currently, 7-Eleven has just one offer for Orajel – a 0.25 oz tube for $10.99
This is considerably more expensive than in larger stores, which may sell the same Orajel for as little as $4.50. Still, this is the price you pay for convenience – especially since toothaches love to pop up at night when you’re trying to go to bed!
If you do want to save a little bit of cash, we recommend picking up the 7-Select brand instead.
If you opt for the 7-Select brand, you’ll get twice the amount – 0.5 oz, for an even cheaper price.
Currently, 7-Eleven sells the 7-Select 05oz tube for $7.99, which is far more reasonable.
What Aisle Is Orajel Located In At 7-Eleven?
Once you arrive at the 7-Eleven store, you’ll likely want to get in and out of there as quickly as possible. So, which aisle should you search for the Orajel in?
We recommend starting your search in the medicine section, located near other medicines like Benadryl or Advil.
More specifically, you’re likely to find it near the other pain relievers.
Of course, if you are having trouble finding it or you’re worried the store may be out-of-stock, we recommend asking a 7-Eleven employee for assistance.
Do All 7-Eleven Stores Sell Orajel?
Thankfully, the answer is yes!
Out of every 7-Eleven store that we visited, each one of them had Orajel (or the 7-Select brand of benzocaine) for sale.
That being said, it’s possible some stores are missing it. We recommend calling ahead to know for sure.
You can find the number of your local 7-Eleven store using the convenient store locator that 7/11 has on their website.
How Does Orajel Work, Anyway?
Orajel is a topical medication that numbs the inside of the mouth and gums. It is typically used to relieve pain from canker sores, teething, toothackes, and cold sores.
Orajel contains the active ingredient benzocaine, which is a local anesthetic. This means that it works by temporarily numbing the area where it is applied.
When applied to the inside of the mouth or gums, Orajel works by causing a loss of sensation in the area. This can help to relieve pain from canker sores, teething, and cold sores.
Orajel typically works within minutes and the effects can last for up to two hours. It is important to note that Orajel does not treat the underlying cause of the pain, it only temporarily relieves the pain.
If you are using Orajel to treat a cold sore, it is important to apply it at the first sign of a sore (tingling, redness, or itchiness). This will help to prevent the sore from getting worse and will shorten the duration of the sore.
It is also important to avoid eating or drinking until the numbness from Orajel has worn off. This is because you may accidentally bite your tongue, cheek, or lip while you are numb.
If you have any questions about Orajel or how to use it, talk to your doctor or pharmacist.
Thankfully, almost every 7-Eleven store sells Orajel, as well as 7-Eleven’s generic brand.
Although it’s considerably more expensive than other stores, you’ll be able to get it whenever you need it – even if it’s the middle of the night.
