What causes a downwards occlusal plane?
Don't just say mouth breathing, I want to know what happens to the skull that makes it look that way.
Is a bad (vertical) occlusal plane caused by vertical maxillary excess which in turn pushes down on the mandible creating a downwards rotation?
If this is the case, will shortening the maxilla fix the issue? What is the solution.

Growth rotation. VME does not necessarily imply steep occlusal plane since there are various variantions of the jaws' positions.
