If there is any problem, the dentist may refer to an orthodontist for diagnosis and treatment. The doctor may suggest dental x-rays, head or skull x-rays, or facial x-rays. Diagnostic models of the teeth are often needed to diagnose the problem.

Treatment of the condition involves various corrective measures such as use of braces, removal of teeth in case of overcrowded teeth, reshaping, bonding or capping of teeth.
