Cases where the bottom braces are removed first

Are there people here with bottoms removed first? I'm wondering because my bottom teeth are now close and straight, I want them removed but when I asked last time, my ortho told me that both upper and lower should be removed the same time. :cry:

I'm scheduled to have my top braces come off in 2 weeks :jump: :jump: but he said my bottom teeth need a few more months to make sure everything is solid, so they're staying on.

sadly when I asked again my ortho said again that top and bottom should be removed together :cry:

I had my bottom braces removed first. My bottoms were aligned and tops were close but needed a couple more weeks of alignment. So I got my tops off a few weeks after my bottoms.

I guess all orthodontists are different on that!
