Title self-explanatory. Sorry if similar threads already exist. I am curious to learn more about this subject, quite a few things I've read (and seen) seems contradictory.
Cause, vertical growth of maxilla or deep / overbite.
How to correct? Make maxilla shorter or rotate it in CCW direciton.
He isn't foward grown as it seems. His nose is just so short so that's gives ilussion of foward growth. He has vertical elongationin my opinion.
I don't doubt gummy smiles are alawys caused by lack of foward growth. I think i am not correct that by moving maxilla up or shortening it, theeth will come up into correct position and removing gummy smile.
