Welcome to icliniq.com.
The time at which the tongue crib appliance is placed is usually in earlier visits at the start of treatment. However, this decision depends on a multitude of factors, along with your orthodontist treatment approach. It varies with each orthodontist. Also, elastics and e-chain are used for many different purposes like correction of bite, closing spaces, aiding in alignment, retraction, etc. So again, it depends on what tooth movement your teeth require. The simplest way of knowing is to ask your orthodontist for these details.
