Damon Smile

Our Fleming Island, FL orthodontic office is pleased to offer our patients Damon Smile braces. Damon braces use a slide mechanism to hold the archwire, reducing the amount of pressure exerted on the teeth and allowing the teeth to move more freely, quickly, and comfortably. Thanks to these innovative braces, Dr. Lori Aiosa and Dr. Derek Hoffman can help you achieve your perfect smile faster, more comfortably and easier than you ever thought possible!

Get consistent, beautiful, functional results with Damon Smile from Dr. Aiosa and Dr. Hoffman! More than 3000 patients throughout the Fleming Island community have trusted our doctors and Damon technology for their orthodontic treatment. You could be next! 

What's the Damon® Braces Difference?

Damon braces are designed with a mechanical door that holds the wire in place rather than an elastic ligature. This allows for less binding of the wire in the bracket slot which leads to easier tooth movement. It also reduces the amount of pressure being placed on the tooth. As a result, treatment with Damon Smile is often faster and requires fewer adjustments than traditional braces.

Damon Smile facilitates healthy tooth movement which may minimize discomfort and create beautiful Damon Smiles that last a lifetime!

Braces are the beginning, but the system makes the smile!

Damon Smile is not just about revolutionary braces and wires; it gives Dr. Aiosa and Dr. Hoffman a whole different approach to treating patients.

Damon passive self-ligating braces eliminate the need for elastic or metal “ties.” With Damon tie-less braces you can experience treatment without tightening.

Treatment Time

While the time needed in braces will vary from case to case, treatment time with Damon Smile is typically much faster than with conventional braces. Also, far fewer appointments at our Fleming Island office are required during treatment, making your Damon experience convenient and hassle-free. Depending on your unique treatment needs, the typical appointment interval is between four and ten weeks. 


Even though Damon Smile works so quickly, the use of gentle, low-friction force means less discomfort for you. Very light “shape memory” titanium wires are used, gently guiding your teeth to their ideal position.


Damon braces are designed to be discreet, comfortable, and easy to keep clean. Without elastic ties, which attract and collect plaque, Damon braces make dental hygiene easy during treatment. Plus, Damon Smile is available in clear brackets if you want a great smile without sacrificing aesthetics.


Our office recommends the placement of bonded retainers following the removal of your Damon braces. This ensures that your beautiful results are maintained for a lifetime. Proper retainer wear is crucial for success in maintaining results, whether they are achieved with Damon braces or any of the other orthodontic treatments available at Aiosa and Hoffman Orthodontics.
