Should I get my braces off now, or wait?

I had jaw surgery 7 months ago, I feel great BUT I still have numbness around my chin and gums. I can't remember if my surgeon said she wanted to see me before or after my braces came off. My ortho said I can have them off already, my appointment is this week, but my appointment to see surgeon is next month D: I really don't want to wait any longer but I also don't want to get them off in case my surgeon believes I still need them on. HELP ME D: And thank you in advance!

    If your ortho says its ok then it should be ok. But if you want to , see if you can contact your surgeon.
