Front crossbite are usually esthetic issues. Skeletal or dental needs immediate correction. Lateral cephalogram helps identify severity of skeletal problem. Growing children can be corrected by plates, adult skeletal problem needs orthographic surgery. Consultant an Orthodontist for precise diagnosis and treatment modalities. Good day.

You need to show an orthodontist.  It can be a skeletal plus dental problem. Treatment is possible definitely :)
