Overbite, No Space. How to Fix Protrusion?
Overbite and protrusion are not the same. Some people mistakenly refer to excessive overjet as an overbite so I'm assuming that your are making that mistake here as "protrusion" refers to "overjet" not "overbite". At any rate, your problems can be resolved using appliances to develop your arches and realign your jaws.
