Title:
Method of producing "one's pillows" with characteristics for a restful and restorative sleep is based on scientific basis of observing human occlusion
Kind Code:
A1


Abstract:
At present, each person selects a pillow by differences of one's neck form, custom and preference. Hence, this rationale is completely inaccurate. It can be scientifically explained clearly that pillow selection for restful and restorative sleep can be basically identified accurately by observing occlusion (teeth model).

This ground is based on the following three scientific facts.

    • 1. The repose of the head and neck during ones sleep is a peculiar form that is controlled by physiological factors.
    • 2. There is a cause and effect between ones pillow, ones repose, and ones occlusion.
    • 3. The physiological factor is a postnatal condition acquired by the methods and contents, with conditions in breathing pattern, of how ones head was supported while breastfed during the first 90 days immediately after birth, of how and where pressure was applied at the head and neck, or how one was put to sleep.

Prepare the figure (FIG. 16) that classifies the fulcrum area positioned at the side of the neck into 16 portions.

2. Make the figures (FIG. 1 to FIG. 17) that confirm the relationship between “the appearance of one's unique occlusion” and “the growth” with using one's own pillow that gives a restful and restorative sleep. And analyze “ones contact band stabilization area with the pillow”—the area where one constantly contacts with the pillow by feeling the strong directional pressure.

3. Make the diagrams that redraw the results of analysis in (2) into those prepared in (1) [the 15 kinds of fulcrum area which makes difference in the specific formation of occlusion in the growth period and the figure (FIG. 16) that classifies the fulcrum area positioned at the side of the neck into 16 portions]

4. Make “one's contact and stabilization area with the pillow”, one's individual basic data of analysis. Elucidate accurately each item of the characteristics (height, material, size, hardness and shape) of one's pillow for a restful and restorative sleep, comparing above-mentioned figures. (FIG. 1 to FIG. 17)

5. Make the results of education that are obtained in (4) the overall material of decision.

And produce “one's pillow” with characteristics for a restful and restorative sleep is based on scientific basis.

A BACKGROUND OF TECHNIQUE

The former method of clarifying the characteristics of one's pillow, the former method of selecting former method of selecting one's pillow, and the former methods of manufacturing one's pillow have been made by the research such as the shape of the cervical and one's tendency and making investigation through hearing one's individual habits. None of these former methods are scientific at all. Nobody can understand the conditions of one's pillows, and nobody can select and make one's pillow.

There are four problems.

(1) Origin of difference that can be noticed between the characteristics of one's pillow and the method of using one's pillow

(2) Origin of specific area where one can contact and stabilize with a pillow during sleep

(3) Meaning of one's pillow

(4) Roles of one's pillow

Therefore, many people are now in trouble when selecting a pillow. Many people have pillow-makers make a pillow and yet have many problems unsettled. This invention is based on 10 results of analysis (including the results of the 4 matters above-mentioned) that are clarified with 2 investigations and researches by the author. Base on 10 results of analysis (including the results 4 matters above-mentioned), this invention is proposed to the field of industry with a view of to doing an offer that as a result of observing one's unique occlusion, it is possible to produce one's pillow with characteristics for a restful and restorative sleep based on scientific basis.

Investigations and researches above-mentioned that the author has made are the research documents of the following titles.

1) Research document 1: The Truth of the Development of Occlusion Peculiar to an Individual

2) Research document 2: Pillows for Restful and Restorative Sleep to an Individual The 10 results of analysis above-mentioned are as follows.

1. The truth of the Development of Occlusion Peculiar to an Individual

The development of occlusion peculiar to an individual is basically the result of an artificial phenomenon arising from one being forced to sleep in the form of repose of the head and neck by one's parents during the first 90 day period immediately following birth.

2. The meaning of one's occlusion

One's occlusion is a growth record reflecting ones repose of the head and neck during sleep.

3. The characteristics of one's repose of the head and neck during sleep

Ones repose of the head and neck while sleeping is an unique characteristic to each individual that is controlled by one's natural instinctive genes (conditions).

4. The relationship between one's repose of the head and neck during sleep and the formation of one's occlusion

There is a cause-and-effect relation between the growth under one's repose of the head and neck, and the appearance of the formation of occlusion that reflects one's repose of the head and neck during sleep.

5. Origin of one's repose of the head and neck during sleep

One's repose of the head and neck during sleep is dependent on how one's head was supported, or how one was put to sleep, with conditions in breathing pattern in breast feeding. It is a postnatal form and nature that are made within the first 90 days after birth.

6. The relationship between one's pillow, one's repose of the head and neck during sleep, and ones occlusion.

#1. There is a cause-and-effect relation between one's pillow, one's repose of the head and neck during sleep, and one's occlusion.

#2. There is a cause-and-effect relation between the development of occlusion peculiar to an individual and the growth of using ones pillow, with characteristics that can give us a restful and restorative sleep.

7. Origin of the differences that can be noticed in the characteristics of one's pillow and the method of its use

These differences are basically the result of an artificial phenomenon arising from child care-care during the first 90 day period immediately following birth.

One's repose is dependent on how one's head was supported, and how one was put to sleep, with conditions in breathing pattern in breast feeding. In what part of the infant's head and neck the mother or whoever looked after the infant applied the pressure while he or she was sleeping, that is the methods and details.

8. Origin of specific area where one constantly contacts and stabilizes with one's pillow during sleep

How one's head was supported in the breast feeding within the first 90 days after birth, in what portion of one's head and neck pressure was applied, what kind of the pressure it was, or how one was put to sleep.

9. The meaning of pillow

Ones pillow should be used to satisfy physiological factors (conditions) that control the appearance of one's repose of the head and neck during sleep.

10. The role of pillow

One's pillow is not only a device that produces repose of the head and neck during sleep, but also a device that forms one's occlusion during an individual's growth stage. After the growth stage, it becomes the other device that maintains the position-relationship of one's fully developed occlusion.

The Truth of the Development of Occlusion Peculiar to an Individual

INTRODUCTION

The occlusion of human beings varies widely among individuals. Studies on development of occlusion have been made over long periods of time by numerous researchers; however, these studies have not yet come to a conclusion. The prevailing opinion is that the occlusion of each individual is the result of several factors such as heredity, evolution, and sudden changes in diet. As a result of new scientific discoveries, it can be demonstrated that such opinions are entirely erroneous. It has been clarified that the development of occlusion peculiar to an individual is basically the result of an artificial phenomenon arising from one being forced to sleep in the form of repose of the head and neck by one's parents during the first 90 day period immediately following birth.

SUMMARY

The occlusion of Homo sapiens was originally characterized by large, well-formed uniform row of teeth. In the age of Homo sapiens sapiens, this formation varies widely among each individual. The reason for this variation was supported by many on findings conducted with original inhabitants of Australia-Aborigines and the changes in their occlusion done by pioneering researchers. However, these conclusions are phenomenon that can be explained naturally as follows:

1. The uniform occlusion of Aborigines before they contacted Western civilization was based on genetic form.

2. The uniform occlusion arising from heredity form disappeared completely and began to vary, which was caused by sudden changes in diet after contact with Western civilization.

Researchers since then have carried out numerous studies based on this opinion. As a result, every thesis and book regarding this research concludes that the development of occlusion of each individual varies due to several factors such as heredity, evolution and sudden changes in diet. The author has, through his long clinical experience, discovered and confirmed that there must be a correlation between anatomical factors that cause variations in occlusion and repose during sleep. Having doubts with previous researchers, the author further researched and investigated from various aspects, and has discovered that the peculiar occlusion of individual is one's development history based on repose of the head and neck while sleeping.

The basis of this conclusion can be explained scientifically as follows:

1) Repose of the head while sleeping is an unique characteristic to each individual that is controlled by one's natural instinctive genes.

2) There is a cause and effect between one's repose and one's occlusion.

Based on these two findings, the author conducted further investigation and research on repose. This lead to a final conclusion that ones repose is dependent on how ones head was supported, with conditions in breathing pattern, during breast feeding or how one was put to sleep. It is a postnatal form and nature that happens within the first 90 days after birth.

This new scientific finding concludes with “occlusion peculiar to an individual is basically a result of intentional human factor”.

Pillows for Restful and Restorative Sleep to an Individual

INTRODUCTION

Each individual uses pillows with different characteristics in a method that is unique to one for sleeping. The reason why there are differences between individuals is because each individual has unique neck form, customs, and preferences. Hence, the basis of selecting a pillow is based on this idea. This rationale is completely inaccurate. It can be scientifically explained clearly that pillow selection for restful and restorative sleep can be basically identified accurately by observing ones occlusion.

SUMMARY

Homo sapiens are the only mammals that use pillow for sleep. The pillows that people like us today use are not only totally different in height, materials, size, hardness and shape between individuals, but also in the way individuals use them. The reason why there are variances between individuals is because each individual has ones unique neck form, the ideal pillow with the properties that enables them to sleep comfortably. However, through my previous research of “The development of occlusion peculiar to an individual”, where ones occlusion is a growth record reflecting ones repose of the head and neck with conditions in breathing pattern, that was induced by parents during the first 90 days after birth, I started to have doubts about this selection method. I began to investigate and conduct research on the relationship of ones pillow, ones repose of the head and neck during sleep, and ones occlusion.

As a result, the following two facts were clarified.

1) The variances that exist between the properties of ones pillow and the usage of pillow by individuals is basically an artificial phenomenon caused by child care during the first 90 days after ones birth.

2) Ones pillow is not only a device that allows repose of the head and neck during sleep but also a device that forms ones occlusion during an individual's growth stage. After an individual's growth stage, it becomes a device that maintains the position relationship of ones fully developed occlusion.

These grounds are based on the following three scientific facts.

1. The repose of the head and neck during ones sleep is a peculiar form that is controlled by physiological factors.

2. There is a cause and effect between ones pillow, ones repose, and ones occlusion.

3. The physiological factor is a postnatal condition acquired by the methods and contents, with conditions in breathing pattern, of how ones head was supported while breastfed during the first 90 days immediately after birth, of how and where pressure was applied at the head and neck, or how one was put to sleep.

These new scientific facts lead to a conclusion that the properties of the pillow that enables ones restful and restorative sleep can be accurately explained basically by observing ones occlusion and analyzing physiological factors.

Seven Scientific Facts

Items (1) through (4) mentioned earlier are scientific findings that can be analyzed as the repose of head and neck while sleeping is an unique characteristic to each individual that is controlled by one's natural instinctive genes. Items (5), (6), and (7) are scientific findings that can be analyzed as the existence of cause and effect between ones pillow with the properties for a restful and restorative sleep, ones repose of the head and neck during sleep, and ones occlusion. However, the term “repose of the head and neck during sleep” used here is a general term for “repose of the head and neck that can be observed externally (R-HN)” and “repose of the masticatory system that cannot be observed externally (R-MS)”. The reason for this is the existence of two parts—the head unit where the cranium and vertebrae cervicales must both be at rest and the masticatory system where the mandible, tongue, and os hyoideum all have to be at rest. Also, ones occlusion is composed by the following 10 anatomical factors that cause variations.

1. Vertical overlap of the upper (or lower) anterior teeth

2. Horizontal overlap of the upper (or lower) anterior teeth

3. Size of teeth

4. Length of upper anterior teeth

5. Shape of molars

6. State of teeth

7. Size and shape of upper teeth arch

8. Overlap of the molars

9. Angle of anterior teeth

10. Existence of insufficient tooth/teeth

(1) The mechanism that is appeared the form of repose of head and neck

(R-HN):

The (R-HN) of an individual first happens unconsciously through “act of contact and stabilization”. This act is where each individual tries to stabilize the head and neck (which at times may include the back shoulder portion) by contacting specific areas with the pillow (ones pillow with properties that enables one to obtain restful and restorative sleep), or direct contact with mattresses or the floor at a specific angle. The contact areas are different among every individual, and the height, size, firmness, material and shape of the pillow differs accordingly.

(R-MS):

The (R-MS) of an individual first happens unconsciously through “act of contact and stabilization of the tongue”. It is a unique act by each individual that happens uniquely at the jaw position, influenced by gravity, and is dependent upon the aforementioned (R-HN). This act consists of lightly pressing the tongue continuously to the palate, the upper anterior teeth, moving to the lower anterior teeth, and to the upper chin portion to stabilize and position the mandible, os hyoideum and the tongue itself. During this act, an amoebae-like liquid forms at the side and central front portion of the tongue excluding the tip portion, and the tongue is positioned between the upper and lower teeth. Although this act can be observed while asleep and also when one is awake, because the two are fundamentally different, the “act of contact and stabilization of the tongue” refers only to when one is asleep. However, when one sleeps after drinking alcohol, or when one is extremely fatigued, one may temporarily stabilize by opening the mouth wide, and pressing only the tip of the tongue continuously and lightly to the lower anterior teeth.

(2) External factors that causes differences in repose of head and neck during sleep

(R-HN):

a) Sleeping positions one can take, e.g. facing up, down, or sideways

b) The presence of acts which cause a 3rd dimensional angle

1. Twisting of the backbone

2. Twisting of the neck

3. Bending the head sideways

4. Bending the head forward (or backward)

c) 3-dimensional position of the head

d) Where one sleeps (either bed or mattress)

e) Usage of pillow

If one uses a pillow, the number of pillows, its height, size, firmness, material and shape

f) Area of contact with the pillow

This area is where one unconsciously stabilizes the head and neck, at times including portions of the shoulder during sleep.

(R-MS):

a) Contact and stabilization of the tongue

For “act of contact and stabilization of the tongue”, there are 3 different forms which are based on one's breathing pattern.

1. Type RT-BN: This type is where one positions part of the tongue covered with amoebae-like liquid between the spaces formed by upper and lower teeth.

This is confirmed among those who constantly breathe through the nose with their mouth closed during sleep.

2. Type RT-BM: This type is where one slightly places the tongue between the large molars, and uses that space as a respiratory tract.

The thickness of the tongue that enters the space between the anterior teeth is very thick. This is confirmed among those who constantly breathe with their mouths open during sleep.

3. Type RT-BN&BM: This type is where one forms a narrow cylinder with the tongue using the central and back portions (excluding the surrounding portion) and uses that hollow space as a respiratory tract.

In this case, the amount of tongue which enters the space of the upper and lower anterior teeth is larger than RT-BN, and vertical fissure can be found in the central part of the tongue. This is confirmed among those who breathe through the mouth and nose while sleeping.

b) “3 dimensional position of the jaw” under (R-HN)

There are 3 different types at this position.

1. Type where ligaments support the jaw only, and the jaws can move freely This is seen among those who do not make any contact of the jaw while asleep.

2. Type where pressure is applied to the Jaw by the pillow, and the influence of gravity is limited.

This is confirmed among those who sleep with the jaw contacting the pillow (with the exception of the contacting the chin)

3. Type where the jaw either moves outwardly toward the molars (either to the left or right side).

This is confirmed among those who sleep sideways or facing downwards, or among those who stabilize the left and/or right side of the jaw including the chin, by strongly pressing against the pillow.

(3) Peculiarity of contact and stabilization area with the pillow

The contact and stabilization area varies widely among individuals, and can be perceived by the map-like pattern that appears on the skin (epidermis). There could be thousands and millions of these map-like patterns due to unique sleeping patterns by individual. For instance, one could have five sleeping patterns consisting of one sleeping pattern facing up, two facing the left side, and two facing right side. Another person may have eight. Hence, the contact and stabilization area varies among individuals depending on where one has acquired it. However, repose cannot be achieved by just making contact with the pillow. It is a unique area that requires pressure that is within one's tolerance pressure level, and direction of the pressure varies depending on the location. For this reason, one cannot achieve repose if the contact is not within one's tolerance pressure level, and must not exceed or fall below one's tolerance level. In most cases, the map-like pattern, with its physiological significance, is composed of fulcrum area(s) and assisting fulcrum area(s), where the fulcrum area “requires strong pressure in a given direction” and the assisting fulcrum area “requires weak pressure in a given direction”. There are also cases where only the fulcrum area(s) exists. Since the position and number of this map-like pattern varies among individuals, there are cases where one's fulcrum area is another's assisting fulcrum area, or for some, contact in this area may be unnecessary. (FIG. 2 and FIG. 3)

Not only that, the number of fulcrum areas is unique. However, one factor consisutent among all is the direction of pressure necessary.

(4) Repose of the head and neck while sleeping is a unique characteristic to each individual that is controlled by one's natural instinctive genes.

(R-HN):

In order to achieve and maintain one's unique (R-HN), a natural instinctive gene exists to control external genes that cause variances in the repose of the head and neck. This natural gene is unique among individuals and is a natural condition as follows:

1. While sleeping, the area where one makes contact with the pillow is always limited to the specific contact area for that individual. This occurs unconsciously.

2. While sleeping, the pressure applied to each portion of this area must be within one's tolerance pressure level (cannot be too weak or too strong), and in the right direction for that specific area.

(R-MS):

It is controlled to constantly maintain one's (R-MS) based on the complex relation of two natural genes. The first natural gene is the natural condition that is unique to each individual that maintain one's (R-HN). The reason for including this condition is because this act of tongue contact to achieve repose occurs at the jaw position that is determined by one's (R-HN), and is affected by gravity. The other natural gene is based on the following two natural conditions.

a) Breathing patterns during sleep must be specific to each individual.

b) The shape of the tongue when making contact to achieve repose must be the shape that fits one's breathing pattern.

1. RT-BN Type constantly breathes through the nose

2. RT-BM Type constantly breathes through the mouth

3. RT-BN&BM Type breathes through the nose and mouth

(5) The triangular relationship that is confirmed between the repose of the head and neck during sleep, one's occlusion, and one's pillow

a) The overlap of upper (lower) anterior teeth (the vertical overlap and the horizontal overlap), the slant of the upper (lower) anterior teeth, and the upper central incisors twist, and where the outer portions protrude towards the lips

1) On the condition of the breathing method during sleep, there is a relationship between the people who have fulcrum area that is positioned at any of the following—on the back and top portion of the head, on the back and below the top portion of the head, above the protuberantia occipitalis ext., at the protuberantia occipitalis ext. and right above the vertebrae cervicales VII, the occlusions of the anterior teeth (normal occlusion, vertical and horizontal overlap of the upper and lower anterior teeth, the slant of the upper and lower anterior teeth and the upper central incisors twist, and where the outer portion protrude towards the lips) and the characteristics of the pillow. (FIG. 1)

2) On the condition of the breathing method during sleep, there is a relationship between the people who have fulcrum area that is positioned at the central portion of the neck and fulcrum area that is positioned at any of the following—on the back and top portion of the head, on the back and below the top portion of the head, above the protuberantia occipitalis ext., at the protuberantia occipitalis ext. and right above the vertebrae cervicales VII, the occlusions of the anterior teeth (reversed occlusion, vertical and horizontal overlap of the upper and lower anterior teeth, the slant of the upper and lower anterior teeth and the upper central incisors twist, and where the outer portions protrude towards the lips) and the characteristics of pillow. (FIG. 1)

b) The size of teeth

The fulcrum area located at the side of the neck is categorized, there is a relationship this anatomical factor and the characteristics of pillow.

1. When the fulcrum areas both at the right side and at the left side of the neck are viewed as one unit:

There is a relationship between the width of the right and left fulcrum areas, the distribution conditions of large and small teeth, and the characteristics of pillow. The relationship is as follows (FIG. 4)

#1. The people who have the fulcrum areas both at the right side and at the left side of the neck all over the area, all extremely small teeth, and pillow that can apply strong directional pressure all over the area within the fulcrum areas (pillow with characteristics that is extremely mobile or where the shape is easily changeable).

#2. The people who do not have the fulcrum areas, all extremely large teeth, and pillow that can not apply strong directional pressure to the fulcrum areas (pillow with characteristics that is immobile and hard, or where the shape is easily changeable).

#3. The people who have the fulcrum areas (the left and right) in some portions, many large teeth (few small teeth), and pillow that occurs strong directional pressure to few portions within these fulcrum areas (pillow that is relatively immobile, or that is difficult to change shape: these people apply strong directional pressure by placing their hand(s) or finger(s) or arm on top portion of pillow).

#4. The people who have these fulcrum areas (the left and right) in relatively wide area, many small teeth (few large teeth), and pillow that can apply strong directional pressure many portions within these fulcrum areas (pillow that is made of relatively mobile material or where the shape is relatively changeable)

2. When the fulcrum area is positioned at the right (or left) side of neck is divided into 8 parts:

There is a correlation between 8 specific portions within the right (or the left) fulcrum area that at the side of the neck and the size of the upper and lower right (or the left) specific teeth of the same name. (FIG. 5)

Also, There is a relationship between specific portion within the right (or the left) fulcrum area at the side of the neck, the size of the upper and lower right (or the left) specific teeth of the same name, and the characteristics of pillow as follows. (symmetry)

#1. The people who have specific portion all over the area within this right (or the left) fulcrum area possess the lower, upper right (or the left) specific teeth of the same name that are extremely small. These people use pillow that directly or indirectly occur strong directional pressure all over the area of this specific portion within this fulcrum area. Pillow that indirectly occur strong directional pressure is defined as pillow that one use with the hand(s) or arm(s) placed on the pillow.

#2. The people who do not have specific portion within this right (or the left) fulcrum area possess the lower, upper right (or the left) specific teeth of the same name that are extremely large. These people use pillow that do not occur strong directional pressure at this specific portion.

3. When the fulcrum area at the right side (or left) of the neck divided into 16 parts:

There is a correlation between 16 specific portions within the right (or the left) fulcrum area at the side of the neck and the size of the right (or the left) specific tooth. (FIG. 6)

Also, when the right (or the left) fulcrum area at the side of the neck is classified into 16 portions, there is a relationship between the width of specific portion within the right (or the left) fulcrum area at the side of the neck, the size of the right (or left) specific tooth, and characteristics of pillow.

#1. The people who have specific portion all over the area within the right (or the left) fulcrum area at the side of the neck possess the right (or the left) specific tooth that is extremely small. These people use pillow that directly or indirectly occur strong directional pressure all over the area of specific portion within this fulcrum area. Pillow that indirectly occur strong directional pressure is defined as pillow that one use with the hand(s) or arm(s) placed on the pillow. Pillow that indirectly can apply strong directional pressure is defined as pillow that can be used with the hand(s) or arm(s) placed on the pillow.

#2. The people who have specific portion in a relatively large area within the right (or the left) fulcrum area at the side of the neck possess the right (or the left) specific tooth that is relatively small. These people use pillow that directly or indirectly can apply strong directional pressure in a relatively large area of specific portion within this fulcrum area.

#3. People who have specific portion in a relatively small area within the right (or the left) fulcrum area at the side of the neck possess the right (or the left) specific tooth that is relatively large. These people use pillow that directly or indirectly can apply strong directional pressure in a relatively small area of specific portion within this fulcrum area.

#4. People who do not have specific portion within the right (or the left) fulcrum area at the side of the neck possess the right (or the left) specific tooth that is extremely large. These people use pillow that directly or indirectly can not apply strong directional pressure in the specific portion within this fulcrum area, or do not use pillows.

4. The anatomical position of 8 portions within fulcrum area located at the side of the neck is described from the relationship between 8 specific portions and bone structure of the head and neck (or the muscles). (FIG. 7)

c) Length of upper anterior teeth

There is a relationship between fulcrum area positioned at the upper part of the neck, this anatomical factor, and ones pillow as follows. (FIG. 8)

1. People who have fulcrum area at the upper part of the neck all over the area possess the upper anterior teeth that are extremely short. These people use pillow with shape that can apply strong directional pressure in this fulcrum area.

2. People who have fulcrum area at the upper part of the neck in a relatively large area possess the upper anterior teeth that are relatively short. These people use pillow with shape that can apply strong directional pressure in a relatively large area within this fulcrum area.

3. People who do not have fulcrum area at the upper part of the neck possess the upper anterior teeth that are extremely long. These people use pillow with shape that do not can apply strong directional pressure in this fulcrum area.

d) Shape of molars

There is a relationship between fulcrum area positioned at the jaw, this anatomical factor, and characteristics of pillow as follows. (FIG. 9)

1. People who have fulcrum area at the jaw all over the area (including the front part of the cheek bone) on both sides possess extremely pointed molars. These people use pillow that can apply strong directional pressure in a extremely large area within this fulcrum. The pillow is made of easily mobile materials or easily changeable materials.

2. People who have fulcrum area positioned at the jaw in a relatively large area (excluding the front part of the cheek bone) on both sides possess pointed molars. These people use pillow that can apply strong directional pressure in a large area within this fulcrum. The pillow is made of easily mobile materials or easily changeable materials.

3. People who have fulcrum area positioned at the jaw (excluding the front portion of the cheek bone) in a small area possess relatively flat molars. These people use pillow that can apply strong directional pressure in this fulcrum. The pillow is made of relatively immobile materials or relatively unchangeable materials.

Example: In regards to the upper canines protrude from the teeth arch

There is a relationship between this anatomical factor, fulcrum area positioned at the side portion of the head, and pillow that is immobile and which the outer portion is high. (FIG. 10)

However, it requires a condition that one does not possess the portion that relates the size of the upper anterior teeth and canines within fulcrum area at the side of the neck, or one possesses the portion in a small area.

f) The upper teeth arch size

There is a relationship between fulcrum area positioned at the upper side of the head, this anatomical factor, and the characteristics of pillow. Also, there is a relationship between fulcrum area positioned at the side of the neck, this anatomical factor, and the characteristics of pillow. The relationships are as follows. (FIG. 11)

1. People who have fulcrum area at the upper side of the head all over the area possess the upper teeth arch that is extremely large. These people use pillow that is immobile, and extremely low or low. (However, in this case, it requires a condition that one does not possess fulcrum area at the side of the neck.)

2. The people who have fulcrum area is positioned at the side of the neck all over the area possess the upper teeth arch that is extremely small. These people use pillow that is made of easily mobile materials or easily changeable materials. However, in this case, it requires a condition that one does not possess fulcrum area above the side portion of the head.

The people who have the upper teeth arch shape that is horse-shoe possess any fulcrum area within fulcrum areas group that are positioned at the back of the head (on the back and top portion of the head, on the back and below the top portion of the head, at the upper portion of the protuberantia occipitalis ext., at the protuberantia occipitalis ext.) include the central part. These people use pillow which the central part is indented. However, people which the upper rear portion of the head is flat use pillow that is flat and extremely firm. This pillow becomes the most stable when one makes the angle of the neck into 0 degree.

2. The people who have the upper teeth arch shape that is parabolic possess fulcrum area at any following locations that are positioned at the back of the head (on the back and top portion of the head, on the back and below the top portion of the head, at the upper portion of the protuberantia occipitalis ext., at the protuberantia occipitalis ext.) exclude the central part. These people use pillow that is flat. This pillow becomes the most stable when one makes the angle of the neck into about 15 degrees.

3. The people who have the upper teeth arch shape that is long and narrow possess fulcrum area at the upper rear portion of the ear. These people use pillow which the outer portion is not high. This pillow becomes the most stable when one makes the angle of the neck into about 30 degrees.

4. The people who have the upper teeth arch shape where the anterior teeth portion is a narrow and widens at the molars possess fulcrum area at the side of the head (above the ear). These people use pillow which the outer portion is high. This pillow becomes the most stable when one makes the angle of the neck into about 55 degrees.

5. People who have the upper teeth arch shape where the anterior teeth portion is narrow, and widens strongly at the molars possess fulcrum area at the side of the head (covering a wide area above the ear excluding towards the temple). These people use pillow which the outer portion is strongly high.

6. People who have the upper teeth arch shape where the anterior teeth are flat and fulcrum area that is positioned at the side of the base of the neck use the pillow where allow to embrace, placing the pillow between the shoulders and neck. However, the upper teeth arch shape at the molars portion differ depending on one has fulcrum area at any following locations (on the back and top portion of the head, on the back and below the top portion of the head, at the upper portion of the protuberantia occipitalis ext., at the protuberantia occipitalis ext.) and its form in addition to this fulcrum area.

i) The upper and lower anterior teeth that slant to the lips or the tongue, the upper anterior teeth of the overlap (the vertical overlap and the horizontal overlap), and the upper and lower central incisors which the outer portions protrude towards the lips

A. On condition of the breathing method during sleep is constantly through the nose:

There is a relationship between people who have fulcrum area that is positioned in the back of the shoulders, the upper and lower anterior teeth that slant towards the lips, and large pillow (in many cases, these people use many pillows). Also, there is a relationship between people who have fulcrum area that is positioned at the side part of the base of the neck, the upper and lower anterior teeth that slant towards the tongue, and the pillow that can embrace by inserting the pillow between the shoulder and the neck. (FIG. 14)

B. On condition of the breathing method during sleep is constantly through the nose, and where another condition “wideness of fulcrum area” is added to people who have fulcrum area positioned in the back portion of the shoulders or at the side part of the base of the neck.

There is a relationship between the wideness of fulcrum area positioned in the back of the shoulders, the “degree” of slant of the upper and lower anterior teeth that slant toward the lips, and the characteristics of the pillow. Also, there is a relationship between the wideness of fulcrum area positioned at the side part of the base of the neck, the “degree” of slant of the upper and lower front teeth that slant towards the tongue, and the characteristics of the pillow. The relationship is as follows. (FIG. 14)

1. The people who have fulcrum area in the back portion of the shoulders all over the area possess the upper and lower anterior teeth that slant extremely toward the lips. These people use pillow (in most cases, several pillows) that is large, who contact to the shoulders to reach the lower portion.

2. The people who have fulcrum area positioned in the back portion of the shoulders in narrow area possess the upper and lower anterior teeth that slant weakly toward the lips. These people use pillow (in most cases, several pillows.) that is large, who contact to the upper back portion of the shoulders.

3. The people who have fulcrum area positioned at the base of the side of the neck all over the area possess the upper and lower anterior teeth that slant extremely toward the tongue. These people use pillow that everyone can be embraced in a wide area by inserting the pillow between the neck and shoulders.

4. The people who have fulcrum area is positioned at the base of the side of the neck in a narrow area possess the upper and lower anterior teeth that slant extremely toward the tongue. These people use pillow that everyone can be embraced in a narrow area by inserting the pillow between the neck and shoulders.

C. On condition of the breathing method during sleep:

1) There is a relationship between fulcrum area positioned in the back portion of the shoulders and fulcrum area at any of the following locations—on the back and top portion of the head, on the back and below the top portion of the head, above the protuberantia occipitalis ext., at the protuberantia occipitalis ext. and right above the vertebrae cervicales VII, the occlusions of the anterior teeth (normal occlusion, the vertical overlap of the upper anterior teeth, the horizontal overlap of the upper anterior teeth, the upper and lower anterior teeth that are slant towards the lips and the upper central incisors where the outer edge twist and protrude towards the lips), and the characteristics of the pillow. (FIG. 15)

2) There is a relationship between fulcrum area positioned at the side portion of the base of the neck and fulcrum area at any of the following locations—on the back and top portion of the head, on the back and below the top portion of the head, above the protuberantia occipitalis ext., at the protuberantia occipitalis ext. and right above the vertebrae cervicales VII, the occlusions of front teeth (normal, vertical overlap of the upper anterior teeth, horizontal overlap of the upper anterior teeth, upper and lower anterior teeth that are slant towards the tongue, and upper central incisors where the outer edge of the tooth twist and protrude towards the lips), and the characteristics of the pillow. (FIG. 15)

(6) On condition of the breathing method during sleep, the relationship that is confirmed between the characteristics of similar pillow, similar repose of the head and neck while sleeping and similar occlusion.

Example: For group HC (see FIG. 2), where one normally uses an extremely low pillow, but at times, does not use a pillow.

a) Their repose (R-HN) during sleep

(R-HN)

They all have similar “pillow contact area” map-like pattern and furthermore have similar fulcrum areas within this map-like pattern.

(R-MS)

Their jaw does not make any contact while sleeping.

b) The characteristic of their occlusion:

1. Large teeth

2. Short upper anterior teeth

3. Molars with relatively flat biting surface

4. Teeth layout is very proportioned

5. Relatively shallow vertical overlap of the upper teeth

6. Upper teeth arch with large parabolic shape

7. Normal overlap of the molars

8. Vertical anterior teeth—only for those who breathe through the nose while sleeping.

c) The occlusion for those who breathe through the nose while sleeping is very similar to the occlusion of the Aborigines before they made contact with Western civilization.

(7) The correlation that is confirmed between the people who have fulcrum area that is positioned at the side of the neck and insufficient tooth/teeth and switching the pillow to that with very different characteristics during ones growth period There is a correlation between the switching the pillow that requires the arm or hand(s) to create the pressure necessary to ones “area of contact and stabilization with the pillow” to pillow that do not create the necessary pressure even when using the arm or hands during ones growth period, and the appearance of insufficient tooth/teeth.

When the pillow is switched from extremely low and relatively soft to relatively high and relatively firm (period when switch occur: 5 years old)

2. Upper canines (insufficient teeth)

When the pillow is switched from relatively high and relatively firm to relatively high and firm (period when change occur: 6 years old)

8. Lower third large molars (insufficient teeth)

When the pillow is switched from relatively high and relatively firm to extremely low, flat and relatively soft pillow (period when switch occur: 8 years old)

Function for Maintenance of Repose

Every individual develops and maintains ones own repose of the head during sleep unconsciously. From the scientific facts (1) (2) (3) (4) and biological standpoint, the reason for this is due to the fact that all living body possess function for maintaining repose that reacts to ones physiological genes. This function is an inevitable reactive function that all living creatures within gravitational forces possess to acquire rest, which is a physiological need necessary to all living creatures. The purpose of this feature is to immobilize the particular functioning portions, which occurs unconsciously during sleep or by the act of maintaining repose that relies on some physical method that is based on the physiological condition that controls the emergence of repose of the head while sleep. This feature enables one to develop a form to physiologically cancel the earth's gravity to all functioning portions (during sleep) or parts of the functioning portion (during rest). However, this physiological condition is a unique condition for all living creatures excluding humans. For humans, it is a unique condition that exists by functionality. Furthermore, for humans, repose formed from this function for rest and for sleep are totally different forms. This is because for humans that stand upright, the physiological conditions differ between rest and sleep.

The existence of these reactive functions can be proved from the following facts:

a) For all living creatures, repose while sleep is a form of physiologically canceling the earth's gravitational forces. Repose cannot be attained Just by defying gravitational forces.

b) For humans, each person can form repose by creating ones unique form while sleeping. This unique form to each individual physiologically cancels the earth's gravity, and this unique form is also created by each functional part of each individual. However, in nature, all living creatures with the exception of human beings, have a common form for this certain species. Hence for humans, it is a unique form for each individual, whereas for other living species, it is common form for this species.

c) In order for humans to maintain repose while sleep, each individual performs “repose maintaining act” within each functional part following ones physiological condition, and must relax all motor muscles in all functional parts. There are three types with different characteristics to achieve this act.

1. Contact stabilization method, where a certain area of the functional part makes contact and is stabilized. All functional parts with the exception of the masticatory system are done in this method.

2. Tongue contact stabilization and ligament method, which uses the masticatory system.

3. Tongue contact stabilization and ligament and jaw method, which uses the masticatory system. Due to the existence of this function, almost all humans during sleep, even while they turn over in their sleep, will always develop ones (R-HN) by making contact with the pillow, changing its shape or inserting their arm under it. By doing so, one can apply directional tolerance pressure to ones map like patter area as needed.

However, for some, they can apply this pressure by making contact directly with the mattress or floors. This is because there are those who can attain tolerance pressure levels by using pillows, and those who cannot by using pillows. Also, if one happens to go on a trip and stays in a hotel where the pillow cannot satisfy ones physiological condition, then one will not be able to attain repose no matter how hard one tries. One will never be able to regain from fatigue. This is because the function to maintain repose cannot function properly, and is the reason why one cannot sometimes sleep well when they change pillows.

Operating Factors

From scientific truth (5) and (6), the existence of two reactive factors that form ones occlusion and its mechanism has become clear.

a) Two operating factors

i. Operating factor originating from (R-HN):

This operating factor is the fulcrum area group that can be observed as a mosaic-like pattern on the epidermis of the head and neck where at times may include the back and the shoulders. (FIG. 16: x-1)

The fulcrum areas excluding the side portion of the chin controls the unique feature that specifically forms the specific physiological gene not related to breathing pattern while sleeping. This formation occurs in a specific method, reacting to strong directional pressure that is applied constantly within specific fulcrum areas while sleeping during the growth stage.

However, the method of how these fulcrum areas operate differs depending on the location of fulcrum area. Also, most fulcrum areas do not have the conditions regarding functions, but some fulcrum areas have conditions such as priority, or that it must exist on both sides in order to operate. Furthermore, the degree of how these fulcrum areas operate with the physiological gene differ based on the wideness of the fulcrum area, and the details differ based on where it is located within the fulcrum area. Among these fulcrum areas, the area at the side of the neck is special. (FIG. 16: x-2 and x-3)

Also, the direction of pressure required within each fulcrum area is location specific. (FIG. 17) Most people create strong directional pressure by using ones unique pillows with unique properties necessary for restful sleep. (See Scientific Fact—5)

Each individual has different quantity and forms of these fulcrum areas in unique locations. This is why ones occlusion is very unique among individuals. However, the only period where this fulcrum area group functions as operating factor is during ones growth period.

Within these fulcrum areas, the 15 variations of individual areas that function during ones growth period to form ones occlusion are as follows.

213(12) Fulcrum area that is positioned on the back and upper portion of the head This fulcrum area causes the vertical overlap of the upper anterior teeth that is extremely shallow. However, nobody must have fulcrum area positioned right above the vertebrae cervicales VII. This fulcrum area that exclude the central portion causes the upper teeth arch shape that is parabolic, but this fulcrum area that include the central portion causes the upper teeth arch shape that is horseshoe. However, nobody must have fulcrum area positioned at the side portion of the head.

214(135) Fulcrum area that is positioned above the side portion of the head

This fulcrum area causes the size of the upper teeth arch that is large. However, these people who have fulcrum area that is positioned at the side of the neck, but who do not have fulcrum area that is positioned at the side of the neck in a wide area possess this size that is extremely large.

215(132) Fulcrum area that is positioned at the side portion of the head

This fulcrum area causes the upper teeth arch shape which the anterior teeth portion is narrow, and widens at the molars portion.

216(13) Fulcrum area that is positioned on the back and below the top portion of the head

This fulcrum area causes the vertical overlap of the upper anterior teeth that is shallow. The potion that exclude the central portion within this fulcrum area causes the upper teeth arch shape that is parabolic, but the portion that include the central portion within this fulcrum area causes the shape that is horseshoe. However, nobody must have fulcrum area positioned at the side portion of the head.

217(14) Fulcrum area that is positioned above the protuberantia occipitalis ext.

This fulcrum area causes the vertical overlap of the upper anterior teeth that is relatively deep. This fulcrum area that exclude the central portion causes the upper teeth arch shape that is parabolic, but the portion that include the central portion within this fulcrum area causes the shape that is horseshoe. However, nobody must have fulcrum area that is positioned at the side portion of the head.

218(73) Fulcrum area that is positioned at the side of the neck

This fulcrum area is classified into 16 kinds of portion on each side of the right and the left that causes 16 teeth to become small. The specific portion causes the specific tooth to become small on each side of the right and the left. (FIG. 16: x-2 and x-3). Also, this fulcrum area causes the upper teeth arch shape to become small too.

219(15) Fulcrum area that is positioned at the protuberantia occipitalis ext. This fulcrum area causes the vertical overlap of the upper anterior teeth to be extremely deep. The potion that exclude the central portion within this fulcrum area causes the upper teeth arch shape that is parabolic, but the portion that include the central portion within this fulcrum area causes the shape that is horse-shoe.

However, nobody must have fulcrum area that is positioned at the side of the head.

220(115) Fulcrum area that is positioned at the upper portion of the neck

This fulcrum area causes the upper anterior teeth to become short. However, these people who have this fulcrum area in a wide area possess the upper anterior teeth that are extremely short, but who have fulcrum area in a narrow area possess the upper anterior teeth that are longer. These people who do not have this fulcrum area possess the upper anterior teeth that are extremely long.

221(16) Fulcrum area that is positioned at the central portion of the neck

This fulcrum area causes reversed occlusion. However, these people who have this fulcrum area at the right (or left) side possess the reversed occlusion of the right (left) anterior tooth or the 2 of the right (left) anterior teeth.

222(11) Fulcrum area that is positioned immediately above the vertebrae cervicales VII

This fulcrum area causes the edge-to-edge bite.

However, these people who have this fulcrum area at the side portion of right side (or left) possess the edge-to-edge bite at the portion of the right (or left) anterior tooth or at the 2 portions of the right (or left) anterior teeth.

223(151) Fulcrum area that is positioned at the side portion of the base of the neck

This fulcrum area causes the upper and lower anterior teeth slant towards the tongue. This fulcrum area causes the upper teeth arch shape where the anterior teeth portion is flat.

224(161) Fulcrum area that is positioned in the back portion of the shoulders

This fulcrum area causes the upper and lower anterior teeth slant towards the lips.

225(122) Fulcrum area that is positioned at the jaw

This fulcrum area causes the molars that are pointed.

However, everyone must have this fulcrum area positioned on both sides.

The people who have this fulcrum area in a wide area possess the extremely pointed molars but who have this fulcrum area in a narrow area possess the flat molars.

226(152) Fulcrum area that is positioned at the side of the chin:

This fulcrum area causes cross bite.

However, the people who have this fulcrum area on the right (or left) side possess the one side (the right side or the left side) of the cross bite but who have this fulcrum area on both sides of the right side and the left side possess the both sides (the right side or the left side) of the cross bite.

227(146) Fulcrum area that is positioned at the upper rear portion of the ear

This fulcrum area causes the upper teeth arch shape that is long and narrow. However, nobody must have fulcrum area that is positioned at the side portion of the head.

ii. Operating factor originating from (R-MS):

This operating factor is the strong directional pressure occurring at the contact portion of the tongue during the contact and stabilization of the tongue. This occurs during ones growth period. The contact and stabilization of the tongue during this growth period develops constant weak directional pressure between the tongue's specific area and the contact portion. However, this weak pressure is not the main operating factor that causes uniqueness in ones occlusion. This pressure is unique to every individual, and the place where it develops and the number of times it develops differs from one person to another. Not only that, this pressure is developed in three different ways, and each method and direction is different. However, this pressure, once past ones growth period, becomes a weak pressure similar to the surrounding pressure, and does not function anymore as operating factors.

1. Strong pressure caused by fulcrum area:

This pressure develops from the pressure of the tongue's specific portion, but is not developed constantly. It is a very special pressure that is formed during the “contact and stabilization of the tongue”. Not only that, the position and direction of this pressure differs depending on the fulcrum area as follows:

#1. For fulcrum areas that control the degree of vertical overlap of the front teeth—This pressure is formed between the central front portion of the tongue where it is in amoeba state and the upper and lower anterior teeth biting edge, and operates in and up/down direction. This pressure develops in all individuals, and forms vertical occlusion of the front teeth. The strength of this pressure differs slightly depending on where ones fulcrum area is positioned. When this pressure is relatively strong, ones vertical overlap of the front teeth is deep. However, when this pressure is strong, the vertical overlap is shallow.

#2. For fulcrum area that is positioned at the side part of the base of the neck—This pressure is formed between the inner portions of the tongue as mentioned in #1 above and the root portion of the upper and lower anterior teeth, and operates toward the lips. This pressure is developed by those whose fulcrum area is positioned at the portion, and causes the upper and lower anterior teeth to slant toward the tongue.

#3. For fulcrum area that is positioned at the back portion of the shoulder—This pressure is formed at the upper and lower anterior biting edge portion and the inner portions of the tongue as mentioned in #1 above, and operates toward the lips. This pressure is developed by those who have this fulcrum area, and causes the upper and lower anterior teeth to slant toward the lips.

#4. For fulcrum area that is positioned at the central part of the neck—This pressure is formed at the inner portions of the tongue as mentioned in #1 above and the area between the central part of the lower anterior teeth toward the chin, and operates toward the lips. This pressure causes reversed occlusion, and develops by those whose fulcrum area is positioned at this area.

2. Strong pressure caused by differences in breathing method while sleeping: This pressure is formed at the central part of the tongue and specific parts of the front teeth, and operates in a specific direction. However, the place where this pressure develops and the direction where this pressure operates is different determined by the formation of ones fulcrum area and ones “contact and stabilization of the tongue”. During sleep, for type RT-BM who constantly breathe through the mouth, this pressure is developed by their thick tongue. However, the thicker the tongue, stronger pressure is developed. For this reason, this pressure for some people develops as extremely strong pressure close to the lips that pushes the upper anterior teeth biting edge portion outwards. For some people, it develops as extremely strong pressure that pushes the upper anterior teeth biting edge portion upwards, or as extremely strong pressure that pushes both the upper anterior teeth biting edge portion and occlusion surface of the small molars upward. These pressures cause extreme open bite and wide horizontal overlap. For type RT-BN&BM who repeat nose and mouth breathing during sleeping, this pressure develops between the cylinder shaped tongue portion and specific parts of the front teeth. This pressure, depending on the person, operates in an upward direction at the upper anterior biting edge portion. For some, it pushes the outer edge portions of the upper central incisors toward the lips, and for some, it pushes the upper anterior teeth biting edge portion toward the lips. These pressures cause narrow horizontal overlap, weak open bite, and specific occlusion of the upper anterior teeth. However, for type RT-BN who breathes through the nose while sleeping, this type of pressure doesn't develop.

3. Strong pressure caused by the tongue's weight: This pressure develops mainly between the rear portion of the tongue that has expanded due to the earth's gravity and the molars, where it widens the teeth arch. This pressure is unique to every individual, and the place where it develops and the number of times it develops differs from one person to another. The difference is due to the relationship between the earth's gravitational forces and the three-dimensional position of the jaw formed from ones “contact stabilization area with the pillow”.

b) The mechanism where ones occlusion is formed

Ones occlusion is determined by ones breathing patterns during sleep and ones fulcrum areas that exist in the area of contact with the pillow. It is formed during one's growth period by the following methods.

i. Vertical overlap of the upper anterior teeth, reversed occlusion , the upper and lower anterior teeth slanting toward the lips and the upper and lower anterior teeth slanting toward the tongue:

These forms are developed by the following methods.

1. While sleeping during ones growth period, the epidermis of the area located at the specific area recognizes ones fulcrum area form when pressure is applied and transmits this information to the living body, reacting to strong directional pressure constantly applied by the pillow, mattress or hand (arm).

2. Based on this information, the living body begins to form the tongue, which performs physical stabilization act physiological property in a shape that exerts strong pressure in specific area of the tongue. This tongue reflects ones fulcrum area.

3. The tongue that is formed in this manner exerts pressure during “stabilization by contact”. This pressure forms the tongue into an anatomical form mentioned above and also reflects ones fulcrum areas in the specific area.

ii. Teeth size, length of upper anterior teeth, and shape of molars:

These are formed in the following manner.

1. During ones growth period, the epidermis of the fulcrum areas at the specific area transmits this information to the living body in a similar method as i. above.

2. The living body transmits this information to the embryo of the teeth at its growth stage. These anatomical factors are formed based this fulcrum area information unique to each individual.

iii. Upper anterior teeth arch size:

These are formed in the following manner.

1. During ones growth period, the epidermis of the fulcrum area that determines the size of the upper anterior teeth arch transmits this information to the living body in a similar method as i. above.

2. The living body forms upper anterior teeth arch size based on ones fulcrum area information.

iv. Upper teeth arch shape:

This anatomical factor is formed by the act of contact and stabilization of the tongue that is strongly affected by the earth's gravity, and is formed as follows:

1. During sleep, each person, due to repose function peculiar to individuals, unconsciously stabilizes portions of the head with items which satisfy ones physiological conditions, such as the pillow, in a three dimensional angle. Thus, all individuals are forced to constantly sleep in ones unique sleeping form. Depending on the individual, when sleeping in ones unique sleeping form, along with the pillow, one constantly uses the hand or part of the arm. During this, within ones mouth, contact and stabilization of the tongue occur within ones third dimensional position of the jaw, and constantly develops weak directional pressure where the tongue makes contact. However, this act during ones growth period constantly forms strong directional pressure at the expanded portion of the tongue affected by the earth's gravity or the expanded and shrunk portions of the contact of the tongue portion. This act is unique among individuals.

2. These pressures act upon the tongue where it makes contact and forms various formations to this anatomical factor. The following 5 forms are the basic anatomical factor.

#1. In the case of horse-shoe shaped arch—For those whose fulcrum area is positioned at the portion of the back of the head including the central part, when they sleep facing up, they will sleep in a position where they are facing straight forward. Those who fall under this type do not twist their neck when sleeping. This sleeping position causes the tongue that is making contact and stabilization to shrink, and causes the rear portion of the tongue to expand. This portion that has expanded causes strong pressure and causes this formation.

#2. In the case of parabolic shaped arch—For those whose fulcrum area is positioned excluding the central portion of the back of the head, when they sleep facing up, they will always sleep with their spine and chin slightly twisted to either side, and also their neck slightly twisted. This sleeping position causes a portion of the tongue to drop and sink, therefore causing the rear portion of the tongue to further expand, more than #1 mentioned earlier. This portion that has expanded causes strong pressure and causes this formation.

#3. In the case of teeth arch where it is narrow at the front portion and widens at the molars—For those whose fulcrum area is positioned at the side portion of the head, they constantly tend to sleep sideways, making strong contact at the portion above the ears with the pillow. This sleeping position causes the tongue to expand toward the rear molars and become narrow at the front teeth portion. Pressure that is formed at various portions of the tongue causes this formation.

#4. In the case of teeth arch where it is narrow at the front portion and widens strongly at the molars—For those whose fulcrum area is positioned at the side portion of the head above the ears spreading to the forehead, they tend to sleep sideways, constantly making strong contact of the temple rather than upper ear portion with the pillow and furthermore, the body is angled inwards. This sleeping position causes the tongue to strongly expand toward the molars and become narrow at the front teeth portion. Pressure that is formed at various portions of the tongue causes this formation.

#5. In the case of teeth arch where it is flat at the upper 4 incisors: For those whose fulcrum area is positioned at the base portion of the neck, they constantly tend to sleep twisting their neck to the left (or right) when facing upwards. Sleeping in this form causes the tongue to drop towards the left (or right) at the front anterior teeth, making the central tongue portion thin where it contacts the central part of the front anterior teeth. The tongue expands where it makes contact with the canine. Pressure that is formed at various portions of the tongue causes this formation.

v. State of teeth:

In the case of upper anterior teeth arch shape where the upper canine protrudes from the upper arch: This occlusion occurs for those who have fulcrum area that is related to the inverse relationship between teeth size and the upper anterior teeth arch shape. It is formed as follows:

1. When ones fulcrum area is positioned at the side portion of the head, the upper teeth arch shape is narrow at the front and widens at the molars. However, in the case of those who fall under this type and fulcrum area that is not positioned at the side of the neck, the teeth size is large.

2. As a result, the last canine that protrudes does not have enough room, and causes the canine to protrude from the arch.

vi. Cross bite—Irregular overlap of molars:

This occlusion occurs to those who sleep by constantly contacting the side portion of the chin with the pillow. It is formed as follows:

1. Sleeping form where one constantly makes the side portion of the chin make contact with the pillow causes the jaw to move in the opposite direction (outwards). Under this condition, when the molars are growing out, the overlap of molars is determined by the jaw that has moved outwards.

2. As a result, the overlap of molars that has moved outwards is in reverse relationship than normal condition. However, for those who have cross bite on both left and right side, this occlusion occurs for those who constantly sleep on the right side, constantly making the right portion of the chin contact the pillow, and when they sleep on the left side, the left side portion of the chin is constantly making contact with the pillow.

vii. Wide horizontal overlap of upper (lower) anterior teeth and extreme open bite:

These occlusion are formed by the “contact and stabilization of the tongue” under type RT-BM when one breathe through the mouth when sleeping in the following manner. However, their tongue is thick.

1. When type RT-BM of the “act of stabilization of the tongue” occurs around the age of 7 when the upper anterior teeth is growing out, a strong pressure develops at the central portion of the tongue that makes contact with the upper anterior teeth. This directional pressure is determined and affected by the fulcrum area that determines ones vertical overlap. For this reason, for those whose fulcrum area is positioned right above the vertebrae cervicales VII, this pressure becomes strong pressure that pushes the upper anterior teeth upwards. For those whose fulcrum area is positioned in other specific fulcrum areas, this pressure becomes strong pressure that pushes the upper anterior teeth outwards.

2. As a result, for those who have fulcrum area right above the vertebrae cervicales VII, this directional pressure causes wide gaps in the upper and lower teeth, and causes extreme open bite. On the other hand, for those who have fulcrum area positioned in other specific fulcrum areas, this directional pressure moves the upper anterior teeth outward, and at the same time, causes wide gaps in the upper and lower teeth, and causes wide horizontal overlap of upper anterior teeth.

viii. The outer edges of the upper central incisors twisting toward the lips:

This occlusion is formed by those who repeatedly breathe through the nose and mouth while sleeping and also by contact by stabilization of the tongue around the age of 7 years old from the following method. However, these people perform this act as type RT-BN&BM.

1. Around the age of 7 years old, although the upper centric incisors has grown out, the root of the teeth are still in the development stage, and also, it is a period where the teeth next to them does not still exist. For this reason, when the act of stabilization of the tongue occurs as type RT-BN&BM, a strong pressure develops that pushes the distal portion of the upper centric incisor toward the lips. The cylinder shape tongue causes this.

2. This directional pressure causes the medial portion of the upper central incisor to twist toward the lips and causes this occlusion. This occlusion allows one to breathe through the mouth.

ix. Narrow horizontal overlap of the upper incisors and weak open bite: This occlusion is formed by those who repeatedly breathe through the nose and mouth while sleeping who has developed nose infecting around the age of 9 years old, and also by contact and stabilization of the tongue by type RT-BN&BM that has started around the age of 9 years old.

1. After the age of 9 years old, the centric incisors and the teeth next to them have already grown, and the root of the teeth have already developed, or are almost developed. For this reason, when the stabilization of the tongue is done by type RT-BN&BM, a strong pressure that constantly pushes the upper 4 incisors toward the lips develops. This is caused by the cylinder shape tongue. This pressure enables one to form respiratory tract. Also, since this act is dependent on the fulcrum area that determines ones vertical overlap, for those whose fulcrum area is located directly above the vertebrae cervicales VII, this strong pressure pushes the upper incisors upward.

2. As a result, for those who have fulcrum area related to the edge-to-edge bite, this strong directional pressure forms small gaps between the upper and lower teeth and causes weak open bite. On the other hand, for those who have fulcrum area that determines the degree of vertical overlap in other specific areas, this directional pressure causes narrow gaps between the upper and lower teeth and causes the upper anterior teeth with narrow horizontal overlap. This occlusion is also a form to allow breathing through the mouth.

x. The upper incisors slanting toward the lips: This occlusion is formed by those who repeatedly breathe through the nose and mouth while sleeping, and also by contact and stabilization of the tongue by type RT-BN&BM and type RT-BM who constantly breath through the mouth. It is formed in the following manner.

1. When the contact and stabilization of the tongue by type RT-BN&BM or type RT-BM occurs, a strong pressure develops that pushes the upper anterior teeth biting edge constantly outwards. This is caused by the cylinder shape tongue or by the surface of the thick tongue.

2. This pressure causes the upper anterior teeth to slant toward the lips and causes this occlusion shape. This also happens to type RT-BM. However, for those whose fulcrum area is located at the side of the base of the neck, it causes the upper anterior teeth to slant towards the tongue. Even if a pressure that causes the upper anterior teeth to slant toward the lips, this pressure is lightened, or canceled out. For those whose fulcrum area is located directly above the vertebrae cervicales VII, the pressure caused by the cylinder shape tongue or by the thick tongue pushes the upper anterior teeth biting edge upwards. For this reason, these people do not have occlusion where the front upper anterior teeth slant toward the lips.

xi. Insufficient teeth

The growth of embryo of the teeth is dependent on at least one of the following three fulcrum areas, where it is unique among individuals during ones growth period while sleeping: It is maintained by unconsciously applying strong pressure constantly to portions of the fulcrum area below the protuberantia occipitalis ext. to the upper part of the neck, fulcrum area at the side of the neck, and fulcrum area at the jaw. (See FIG. 16) This pressure is specific to this portion. The direction of the pressure required differs between fulcrum areas. However, among these three fulcrum areas, the direction of pressure is extremely different within the fulcrum area positioned at the side of the neck. For this reason, insufficient teeth occurs to those whose fulcrum area is located at the side portion of the neck, covering a wide area at this portion, and was forced to use pillows that could not be shaped or that did not reach the fulcrum area. Insufficient teeth occur in the following manner.

1. It is physically impossible for these people to exert all of the directional pressure (in different directions) necessary at this area (which is unique to individuals) even with the hands and arms. This causes a phenomenon where pressure lacks within this unique specific area.

2. The embryo of the (specific tooth) teeth constantly requires pressure at specific portions of this fulcrum area until the tooth grows during the growth stage of the individual. As a result, the embryo of the specific tooth loses its direction of growth and stops developing, and the teeth are never formed. (Occurrence of insufficient tooth/teeth)

The variation of insufficient teeth that occurs among these people varies depending on the portion where pressure was lacking at the fulcrum area. (When insufficient teeth occur to these people, it will be impossible to apply pressure to the specific portions even when they change the shape and form of the pillow, as if they never had this portion within their fulcrum area. Example: for those whose upper left canine is missing, it is impossible to apply pressure to the portion within the right fulcrum area that is positioned at the side of the neck that causes the upper canine to be small. (See FIG. 16: x-2 and x-3)

Origin of Natural Instinctive Genes

*(R-HN): The origin of natural instinctive genes that constantly makes ones (R-HN) appear

It has been made clear that this natural gene originates from one acquiring various forms of care during the first 90 days after birth. These care induced by parents or one who nurses the child, such as holding the infant's head while breast feeding and how the infant was put to sleep, is done in various methods and forms. The basis for this is when you compare the physiological genes (i. Ones stabilization area by contacting the pillow, ii. The fulcrum area within this portion and the assisting fulcrum area necessary for ones pressure level) that controls ones (R-HN), and ones area of contact with the pillow and the fulcrum area that exists within this area with directional pressure applied to specific areas of the head and neck, including the back shoulder portion during the first 90 days after birth by their parents, both are identical. The pressure applied by the parents during this period mentioned above are the following:

1. Act of applying pressure to various portions of the infant's head and neck always at the same place while breastfeeding. This pressure is applied when holding the infant with the arm or hand. This pressure also varies in strength and direction.

2. Act of pressure occurring at specific areas of the infant's head and/or neck always at the same place when putting the infant to sleep. This pressure develops when the head makes contact with the pillow (or folded towels), and this pressure varies in strength and direction.

3. Act of pressure occurring at the shoulder back portion when the infant is put to sleep wearing clothes of relatively thick material.

The following are some excerpts from mothers who have nursed infants:

a) Different ways of supporting the head and neck while breastfeeding

Example 1—In the case of those who belong to group HC (see FIG. 2) that sleeps while making strong contact stabilization by contacting below the top portion of the head and the upper portion of the neck with the pillow: Mothers testify that they have been placing their arm below the protuberantia occipitalis ext. to the upper portion of the neck while breastfeeding. They have laid thin towels under the head so that strong pressure will be formed below the top portion of the head. They have also occasionally moved the infant's head to the left and right so that deformations would not occur at the back portion of the head.

Example 2—In the case of those who have edge-to-edge bite (see FIG. 1: type NB), where “strong directional pressure” is required at the fulcrum area right above the vertebrae cervicales VII: Mothers testify that they have constantly placed their lower palm at this area while breastfeeding.

Example 3—In the case of those who have the fulcrum area at the temple where a “strong directional pressure” is required (see FIG. 12: o-5): Mothers testify that they have been holding the baby at the temple, passing the back portion of the head, and to the other temple side or to the side portion opposite of the protuberantia occipitalis ext. while breastfeeding, completely wrapping the baby's head.

b) The relationship of when the infant was born and clothing

Example 1—In the case of those fall under group NP-NB (see FIG. 3) where the fulcrum area is in the back portion of the shoulder, and required tolerance pressure level: Mothers testify that since the baby was born during winter season, they have put the baby to sleep with the baby wearing clothes with the relatively thick materials that causes strong pressure at the back shoulder portion. Pillow was not used, and the baby slept facing upward. The baby was put to sleep in this manner from birth up until the warm months.

c) Different ways of holding the baby

Example 1—In the case of those who have reversed occlusion (see FIG. 1: type NC-HC, type NC-GU, and type NC-G), where “strong directional pressure” is required at the fulcrum area of the central part of the neck: Parents testify that they have regularly put the baby to sleep by placing their arm under the baby's neck as a pillow.

*(R-MS): The origin of breathing method during sleep

It has been made clear by the parents' and the persons testimony that the origin of this breathing method comes from one experience with nose problems during ones growth period and when that person has experienced this.

a) For those who constantly breathe through the nose: This breathing pattern is confirmed among those who did not experience nose problems during ones growth period.

b) Those who constantly breathe through the mouth: For this type of people, they have been breathing through the mouth since they were born. Immediately after about one week after birth until they have been through the breast-feeding period, they have experienced convulsive fit frequently. This type has difficulties in breathing through the nose during sleep. Also, in the case of this type, either parent has had contagious nose infection.

c) Those who breathe through the nose and mouth: For this type of people, they have experienced nose problems between three years old and nine years old. For this reason, they frequently experience stuffy nose symptoms when they go to sleep or in early morning up until now. They have not experienced convulsive fit during breastfeeding period.

Character Peculiar to Homo sapiens

Based on the three reasons below, it can be interpreted that the repose of the head and neck while sleeping for humans is an effect caused by the parents during the first 90 days after birth, where the first week is very important.

a) All mammal infants except humans can walk or grab their mother or can move immediately within one week after birth. For human infants, it is impossible since they cannot move their neck freely or even sit with their head in place until the first 90 days. This is characteristic peculiar to humans. This can be explained as follows: Almost all mammal infants during its fetus stage grow in zero gravitational environment in the amniotic fluid. They feel the atmospheric pressure that exists within the amniotic fluid and the very minimal earth's vertical direction gravity. Due to this, they are born with species-specific motor skills that physiologically cancel the earth's gravity. This is a species-specific repose form. All living animals require this motor skill that reacts with the earth's gravity. However for human infants, although they can be active in the amniotic fluid during the fetus stage, they are born in a state where they do not have any repose form to physiologically cancel the earth's gravitational forces. Infants are extremely sensitive to pressure and react to strong directional pressure applied to the fulcrum areas at the head and neck that at times include the back shoulder portion. Parents induce this pressure during child raising. Infants begin to form repose in various functional parts during sleep during this period. The first function is the repose of the head and neck during sleep, which determines the repose of the whole body. It is necessary to achieve motor skills of the head and neck at level position, but for humans, this requires 90 days for this to develop due to the characteristic of humans. For this reason, the repose of the head and neck, once set, is set for ones whole lifetime and cannot be changed. It is one's unique characteristic. Furthermore, if different parents raise their child differently, then one's repose is also totally unique. If the child is raised in a common racial/ethnic method, then one's repose is ethnic specific. However, even within ethnic specific repose forms, there are subtle differences in the size of the parents hands/arms or the strength of the hands/arms when hold their child.

b) Development of (R-HN)

Stage 1 (Beginning phase): Immediately after birth—It is mandatory for human infants to adapt to the earth's gravity due to the reasons above.

Stage 2 (Formation phase): Approx. 1 week after birth—If the parents during this period put the baby to sleep facing downwards, then the baby must be held in this position or else they will start and continue crying until they are held in this position. Also, if the parents have put the baby to sleep facing sideways, the baby will start and continue crying if they do not hold the baby sideways. The above reasons are the basis for this.

Stage 3 (Development phase): Approx. 90 days after birth—The basis of this is that infants are able to hold objects and sit by supporting their head.

c) (R-MS): How one acquires one's breathing method while sleeping and the three different “stabilization by tongue contact”.

Stage 1 (Beginning phase): Immediately after birth—All infants breathe the nose and are type RT-BN.

Stage 2 (Formation phase): Approx. 1 week after birth—Infants usually breathe through the nose (type RT-BN). However, if the infant has been infected with nose problems during this period, they breathe through the mouth (type RT-BM).

Stage 3 (Development phase): Approx. 90 days after birth—All infants develop one's mouth or nose breathing method while sleep during this period (type RT-BN) where they constantly breathe through the nose, and type RT-BM if they breathe through the mouth.

Stage 4 (Emergency evacuation): After 90 days after birth—For infants who have nose problems during this period, they repeat mouth and nose breathing while sleep. This form is type RT-BN when they breathe through the nose, but type RT-BN&BM when they breathe the mouth.

Analysis

(1) It can be analyzed that an individual's repose of the head and neck while sleeping is a unique form that is regulated by natural genes, as explained earlier in the “scientific truths 1,2,3, and 4” and “function of maintaining repose”. This analysis means one is forced to sleep in the form of repose of the head and neck during sleeping.

(2) Ones occlusion is the record of ones growth reflecting the form of repose of the head and neck during sleep. The basis of this is from these 2 truths.

a) It has been made clear that ones repose of the head and neck while sleeping is ones unique form that is controlled by natural genes.

b) From “Scientific Facts (5)(6)(7)”, “Function for Maintenance of Repose” and “Operating Factors”, it can be analyzed that there is a cause and effect between growth while sleeping under ones unique repose of the head and neck during sleep and occlusion that reflects ones unique repose of the head and neck during sleep.

(3) The origin of natural instinctive genes that control ones repose function of the head and neck during sleep can be analyzed as follows based on “the origin of natural instinctive genes” and “characteristic peculiar to humans”.

a) Two natural instinctive genes that controls (R-HN) to be ones unique (R-HN)

1. Natural instinctive genes where ones contact with the pillow area during sleep must always be within the limited area of ones “contact and stabilization with the pillow (fulcrum areas and assisting fulcrum areas)”—the origin of this natural instinctive gene originates from the following actions that were taken in a daily manner by ones parents (or those who looked after them) during the first 90 days after birth, where the first week is the most important period. #1. Area at the head and neck—i. the act of supporting the infant's head with the mother's hand or arm during breast-feeding. ii. The act of making the infant's head and neck portion contact the mattress or pillow during sleep. iii. The act of placing the arm under the infant's neck as a replacement for the pillow. #2. Area at the back portion of the shoulders—The act of putting the infant to sleep, where the infant was wearing clothes made of thick material. #3. Fulcrum area—The area where strong pressure was applied during the act mentioned above by ones parent (or those who looked after the infant). #4. Assisting fulcrum area—The area where weak pressure was applied during the act mentioned above by ones parent (or those who looked after the infant).

2. Natural instinctive genes where the pressure that one applies must be directional pressure, specific to the originating area, within ones pressure capacity level—the origin of this natural instinctive gene originates from the following actions that were taken in a daily manner by ones parents (or those who looked after them) during the period mentioned above. #1. Strong pressure required at the fulcrum area; i. Area at the head and neck—The act of constantly applying strong pressure at the same position with portions of the hand (all portions of the finger or fingertips, side or bottom part of the palm), or specific area of the arm. ii. The area at the back portion of the shoulders—The act of strong pressure developing at this area due to putting the infant to sleep, where the infant was wearing clothes made of thick material. #2. Weak pressure required at the assisting fulcrum area; i. The area at the head and neck—The act of constantly applying weak pressure at the same position with portion of the hand that does not develop strong pressure. ii. The area at the back portion of the shoulders—The act of weak pressure developing at certain portions of this area due to putting the infant to sleep, where the infant was wearing clothes made of thick material. #3. Directional pressure specific to the originating area—1. The origin of this pressure; the direction of the pressure that developed through the acts mentioned above by the mother. ii. The reason why the pressure developed by the acts mentioned above becomes directional pressure specific to the originating area; the reason is because all the acts mentioned above causes pressure that moves in a certain direction at each specific area of the infant's head and neck, or back portions of the shoulder, which are few limited methods performed commonly by mankind. #4. Ones unique pressure capacity level—i. Unique size, thickness, and shape of hands and arms. ii. The difference of hardness of the bed (or mattress). iii. The difference in thickness of clothes that the infant wears.

b) Natural gene that controls the breathing method during sleep and the shape of the tongue during the “contact and stabilization of the tongue” that occurs with this particular breathing method: Ones breathing method during sleep depends on the experience that one has had with nose problems from birth up until 9 years old. Ones shape of the tongue during “contact and stabilization of the tongue” is determined by the living body adapting the tongue to ones breathing pattern during sleep. This occurs during the tongue's development stage, and also to maintain breathing passage.

1. Type RT-BN are those who have not experienced nose infection since birth up until now. They breathe through the nose during sleep.

2. Type RT-BM are those who have been infected with nose infection between the period immediately after birth up until 90 days after birth. Due to this infection, one breathes through the mouth to maintain breathing passage since one has problems breathing through the nose.

3. Type RT-BN&BM are those who have been infected with nose problems during the period between 90 days after birth to 9 years old. They breathe through the mouth since one has problems breathing the nose when going to sleep or in the morning.

(4) Based on the clarification of the existence of operating factors and the mechanism that forms ones unique occlusion, the direct cause of ones unique occlusion that is completely different among each individual are two pressures explained below. These pressures are caused by one being forced to sleep in ones unique repose of the head and neck during sleep under certain breathing methods.

a) The first pressure is the “strong directional pressure within ones unique pressure tolerance level” which is applied by “factors that cause pressure”. These factors are the hands, arms, and/or pillows, which all are different among each individual. All humans exert this pressure unintentionally while sleeping during ones growth period. b) The other pressure is the strong directional pressure that develops between ones unique “specific area of the specific teeth” and ones unique “specific area of the tongue”. All humans develop this pressure when “the contact and stabilization act of the tongue” is performed while sleeping during ones growth period. However, the direction of these pressures and the degree of strength are completely unique and completely different among individuals.

(5) From the clarification of function of maintaining repose while sleep—a phenomenon peculiar to all humans, and “the neck that does not immediately sit up until 3 months after birth (90 days)”—a human trait, the underlying reason that causes ones unique occlusion is because all humans posses an antenatal form where the “neck does not immediately sit up until 3 months after birth”. This is based on the fundamental condition of the existence of the earth's gravity.

(6) Individuals have special control systems that cause variations in ones occlusion.

System 1: Infants are forced to be born without any repose functioning with the earth's gravity. This is true to all mankind.

System 2: The formation of repose of the head (R-HN) during sleep begins immediately after birth in the following manner: The act where the mother (or one who looks after) develops and/or applies strong directional pressure or weak pressure to certain parts of the specific area of the infants head and neck when breastfeeding the infant or when putting the infant to sleep. At the same time, the formation of “contact and stabilization of the tongue” by the jaw's repose (R-MS) during sleep occurs. This takes place at a 3 dimensional position of the jaw, and based on breathing pattern during sleep, develops in the following manner. In the case of infants who constantly breathe through the nose while sleeping, the formation becomes type RT-BN because ones repose function prioritizes the living body's life sustaining function of breathing through the nose as the air passage. However, in the case of infants who have experienced nose problems and constantly breathes through the mouth, the formation begins become type RT-BM, where it allows to maintain air passage because ones repose function prioritizes the living body's defensive function. However, in the case of infants who constantly breathe through the mouth during sleep because they have had nose infections within 90 days after birth, the formation changes so that it forms as type RT-BM, due to the same reasons mentioned above. The earlier the infant experiences nose problem, the thicker the tongue becomes. When the formation of (R-HN) and (R-MS) begins, formation of the repose system in other functioning areas begin immediately by the pressure that is applied by mothers (or others who look after the infant) when putting the infant to sleep (facing up, sideways, or facing down) and by the thickness of the clothes the infant wears. Although it takes an extremely long period of 90 days for humans to complete ones formation of repose function during sleep, this form is immediately determined within the first 1 week after birth.

System 3: After 3 months after birth, the formation of the infant's (R-HN) and (R-MS) is completed by the human characteristic. As a result, the infant, due to the human's repose function, is forced to record the strong and weak directional pressures applied to the specific areas of the head and neck by the mother (or those who have looked after the infant). Hence, the infant is forced to constantly apply similar pressure to ones specific areas (ones unique contact and stabilization with the pillow) when sleeping. During this, infants who constantly breathe through the nose while sleeping perform “contact and stabilization of the tongue” by type RT-BN, but if the infant has experienced nose infection during the first 90 days after birth, the infant begins to constantly breathe through the mouth, and are forced to perform this by type RT-BM. However, if the infant was constantly breathing through the nose while sleeping and has experienced nose infection 3 months after birth, the infant begins to breathe through the nose and mouth while sleeping, and the infant, as a protective function of the living body, will be forced to perform this by type RT-BN&BM, an emergency evacuation type. Since then, this person will be forced to perform “contact and stabilization of the tongue” by type RT-BN&BM. However, this transition period takes place up until 10 years old only. At the same time (R-HN) and (R-MS) formation is completed, the repose during sleep is formed which is adaptable to (R-HN) by means of human characteristic of maintaining repose, and by means of living body function that promotes directional growth. This is based primarily on sleeping form determined by mothers or those who look after the infant. As a result, the infant has recorded this pressure applied by the mother (or those who looked after the infant), and is forced to sleep by applying similar pressure to specific areas of each function part of the head and neck. After the (R-HN) form is completed, the infant's neck begins to sit, and the infant begins to form ones unique (R-HN) and (R-MS) by ones unique repose function, determined by ones repose while relaxing.

System 4: After 3 months after birth, the infant, under the condition of breathing method during sleep, is forced to constantly apply strong or weak directional pressure to parts of ones contact area with the pillow. The directional pressure was determined within the first 90 days after birth by ones mother (or those who have looked after the infant). The infant does this by oneself during ones growth. The repose during sleep of other functioning parts is applicable to (R-HN). As a result, ones unique occlusion that can be regarded as part of ones bone structure, is formed by reflecting ones unique (R-HN) and (R-MS) under the condition of breathing method during sleep in the following manner. The occlusion of those who breathe through the nose while sleeping is formed by reflecting ones unique (R-HN), which is the repose formed by ones unique “contact and stabilization area with the pillow”, and ones unique (R-MS), which in this case is ones unique type RT-BN. These unique forms are derived from the contact and stabilization of the tongue and peculiar feature of humans where occlusion is formed by reacting to the strong directional pressure that is constantly applied to specific areas of the head and neck, and occasionally, to the back portion of the shoulder (see Forms of Occlusion revealed in FIG. 14) up until 18 years old (the period of when the wisdom teeth are coming out). On the other hand, the occlusion of those who constantly breathe through the mouth while sleeping, or for those who breathe through the mouth and nose, is formed by reflecting ones unique (R-HN), which is the repose formed by ones unique “contact and stabilization with the pillow”, and ones unique (R-MS), which in this case is ones unique type RT-BM or type RT-BN&BM. These unique forms are derived in the same manner as those who constantly breathe through the nose while sleeping as explained above up until 18 years old, given that they have had nose infection and based on the form where they can breath through the mouth while sleeping. At the same time, all bone structure (excluding occlusion) and repose while relaxing is formed up until the age of around 18 years old, based on ones unique (R-HN) and (R-MS) from the pressure that has been applied by mothers (or those who look after the infant) in the first 90 days after birth. The strong directional pressure necessary is created at ones specific area by ones pillow. However, in the case of those children whose pillow was change from a certain period during ones growth stage where they cannot apply or create pressure required at the fulcrum area located at the side of the neck, insufficient teeth occurs to specific tooth. From this time on, ones pillow is changed so that it no longer has the properties to create pressure to the growth of teeth embryo of the specific teeth at certain portions of the fulcrum area at the side of the neck. (During the growth period, if one who can only sleep facing down for a short period of time, was forced to sleep facing down due to the pillow not fitting right, ones growth of the bones will oppose the natural directional growth of the living body, and normal growth will be disrupted. As a result, these people will feel strong pain mainly at the knee joints during the growth period because the living body resists this pressure occurring from the opposing position.)

(7) From the aforementioned (1) through (6), it has been clarified that ones occlusion, with conditions in breathing patterns, is the record of ones growth reflecting ones repose of the head and neck that originated from artificial phenomenon that is incurred by ones parents. This phenomenon is related to the way the parents have breast feed and put to sleep during the first 90 days, of which the first week is the most important period. Hence it is greatly influenced by ones parents or whoever takes care of them after birth.

(8) Also, from analysis results of aforementioned (1) and (3), the variations between ones pillow properties and ones usage of pillow is basically an artificial phenomenon induced by the childcare done by parents during the first 90 days after birth.

(9) From the repose of the head and neck, it can be analyzed that ones pillow with properties for restful and restorative sleep can satisfy ones physiological factor.

(10) From (9) mentioned above, it can be analyzed that ones pillow is a device that controls ones repose of the head and neck during sleep.

(11) From (6) above and operating factor (xi: insufficient teeth), it can be analyzed that ones pillow during growth stage is a device that forms ones occlusion

(12) From the following two facts, it can be analyzed that the ones teeth position and its degrees of slant is constantly maintained so that it will not move vertically or slant towards the tongue by the “contact and stabilization by the tongue” during ones sleep after growth stage.

Facts:

#1. The act of contact and stabilization by the tongue during ones sleep after growth stage constantly applies weak pressure to the 2 surfaces—all of the upper and lower teeth occlusion surface and tongue surface. (See operating factors)

#2. The contact and stabilization is done under ones (R-HN) that was developed by ones pillow during ones sleep after growth stage. (see scientific facts—4)

(13) From (12) above, it can be analyzed that ones pillow after ones growth period is a device that maintains the position relationship of ones fully developed occlusion.

(14) From (1) through (13) above, it can be analyzed that there is a cause and effect between ones pillow, ones repose of the head and neck during sleep, and ones occlusion.

(15) Therefore, the properties of the pillow for restful and restorative sleep to an individual can be accurately identified in the following methods and order.

a) Observe the subject's occlusion in detail.

b) Compare this result with scientific fact (5) and diagram (FIG. 14) that shows relationship between operating factors and fulcrum area, and analyze all of the fulcrum areas and its position of the subject's contact with the pillow areas. When it is impossible to observe the original teeth shape due for people with artificial teeth or due to insufficient teeth, it is possible to identify the position and shape of their fulcrum area by method (b) mentioned above. At the same time, the assisting fulcrum areas can be identified, but this area is not so significant.

c) From this analysis result, create an illustration (only the fulcrum areas) of the subject's area of contact and stabilization with the pillow.

d) With this illustration, from scientific fact (5), analyze the properties of ones pillow that creates strong directional pressure necessary for each of the subjects fulcrum area.

e) Lastly, make an overall judgment of the pillow with the properties where the subject is able to sleep comfortably.

Conclusion

1. The variations between the properties of ones pillow that allows restful and restorative sleep and the usage of pillows is basically an artificial phenomenon arising from childcare by parents during the first 90 days after birth, where the first week is the most important. The reason why I mention “basically” is because these variations also are dependent upon insufficient teeth.

2. There is a cause and effect between pillow that allows restful and restorative sleep to an individual, the repose of the head and neck, and ones unique occlusion. What this means is that it is basically possible to clearly identify the properties of ones pillow that allows restful and restorative sleep by observing ones occlusion and analyzing the physiological factors.

The term “basically” is used because for some, they may have lost many teeth, or may have many artificial teeth that is different in shape from the original teeth, or may have lost all of their teeth.

3. When one selects ones pillow, or is planning to have one made for them, the characteristics of the pillow must be ones device that satisfies ones physiological genes that control ones repose of the head and neck during ones sleep.

Methods

(1) Scientific truths (1) through (7) are based on following research findings of 102 matured Japanese adults.

1. Observation of occlusion (create models)

2. Interviews of how one sleep and direct observation

3. Observation of ones reaction when directional pressure is applied to the head/neck portion, including the back shoulder. The subject's head and neck is under repose state.

4. Determine if one has or has not experienced nose problems

5. Confirm shape and properties of the pillow one uses for sleeping and area one makes contact with the pillow.

6. Observation of tongue while asleep and awake

7. Observation of the head

(2) The “contact and stabilization area with the pillow” as explained in (3) of Seven Scientific Facts and strong directional pressure required for each fulcrum area have been clarified by direct observation of sleeping positions and the following experiments.

1. Experiment 1

a. Have the subject in seated position.

b. Experimenter, using all of the hand or parts (fingers, palm, or lower portion of the palm), applied strong directional pressure on the subject's specific area located at the head, the neck, and the back shoulder portion.

c. Experimenter collected data based on subject's reaction to the pressure applied to 3 areas—where the subject felt uncomfortable (area where no contact is made with the pillow), where the subject felt comfortable (fulcrum area), where the subject didn't feel anything particular (assisting fulcrum area).

d. Experimenter drew 3 dimensional figures (rear, top, and side views) based on these data. Further more, experimenter added arrows to designate direction of pressure.

e. The subjects confirmed the validity of the diagram. 2. Experiment 2

a. Gave towels and pillows to the subject so that they can simulate their sleeping position. The experimenter, with his fingers, confirms the area where the subject makes strong contact or weak contact with the pillow. During this, experimenter observed if and where the subject touched the head with their hand or arm. Since, most subjects do this unconsciously, experimenter asked if the subject felt any stinging sensation at the hands or arms when they woke up in the morning. For those who answered “yes”, this subject must always make their hand or arm make contact with the head. The experimenter made the subject perform this act to confirm where the subject feels comfortable by having subject contact certain portions of the head. (During this time, the area where the hand or arm makes contact is also the fulcrum area.)

b. Based on this data, the experimenter further revised the contact with pillow diagram mentioned earlier.

c. Further asked subject to confirm the validity of this diagram.

3. Experiment 3

a. Removed the towel and pillow, and asked the subject to take sleeping position with their hands crossed behind the head (for some, it will be the rear portion towards the neck). During this time, the experimenter asked the subject to identify which portions of the hand or arms that they develop strong pressure, at which area of the head, and from which direction. Gathered these data.

The reason for gathering data for this act:

#1. This act is done mainly when one leans against an object to maintain repose of the head and neck. It is also confirmed when one performs exercise to strengthen the stomach muscles while maintaining repose of the head and neck.

#2. This act is primarily done unconsciously by all individuals using both arms to temporarily maintain repose of the head and neck and arms (contact and stabilization act).

#3. This act is always done by taking ones unique form at ones unique specific area at the head and neck. For this reason, the specific area of the head and neck where this act is done and the form that occurs at this position is unique between each individual. Not only is it unique between each individual, even for the same person, it differs depending on the position one takes. Furthermore, the number of forms differs between individuals. This is because the form is controlled by ones instinctive genes (that controls ones repose of the head and neck during sleep) and the earth's gravity.

#4. While this act is taking place, all individuals form this unique form at ones specific area of ones head, and with their hands or arms, apply strong directional pressure to certain sections of the fulcrum area group at ones head and neck.

#5. The details of the form of this act and pressure are completely different among individuals, which is also true of ones “area of contact with the pillow”.

b. Have the subject in seated position, and have them perform the same act. Gather this data.

c. Compare these data, and further develop an accurate figure.

#4. The experimenter developed a final diagram by comparing this diagram (#3) and the previous (#2) diagram.

(3) The relationship between anatomical factors and fulcrum area positioned at the specific areas mentioned in part 5 of “Seven Scientific Truths” and ones strong directional pressure necessary at specific fulcrum area can be explained as follows.

1) In order to develop a basis to explain this relationship, I have selected data for those whose contact area with the pillow is very small and vertical overlap of the upper anterior teeth is extremely shallow and those that are not.

2) Perform the following experiment.

#1. First step

Separate the subject into two groups, where one group is those with very shallow upper anterior vertical overlap and the other group does not.

#2. Second step

By using the same method as the first experiment performed in (b), confirm which group has fulcrum area located at the top rear portion of the head.

#3. Third step

By using the same method as the second experiment performed in (b), re-confirm results.

#4. Fourth step

By using the same method as the third experiment performed in (2), confirm which group placed their hands on the rear upper portion of the head, and also confirm where the strong pressure is applied.

3) As a result, it was confirmed that for those with extremely shallow vertical overlap of the upper anterior teeth, they apply strong directional pressure at the upper part of the rear of the head.

4) By using elimination method based on the cause and effect confirmed between the vertical overlap of the upper anterior teeth and the fulcrum area at the upper part of the rear of the head as analysis method, clarified the cause and effect between other physiological genes and the direction of ones strong directional pressure necessary for specific fulcrum area.

5) As a result, the relationship that can be confirmed between the specific physiological genes and specific fulcrum areas is explained in FIG. 1 and FIGS. 4 through 17.

(4) From my research on the “function of repose” mechanism, a common repose function among all living subjects that is necessary in the earth's environment, this existence has been clarified.

(5) From the four fulcrum areas clarified in “Operating Factors” (#1. fulcrum area group at the rear of the head #2 fulcrum area at the side of the base of the neck #3. fulcrum area group at the rear side of the shoulder #4 fulcrum area at the center of the neck), the existence of peculiar pressure exerted by the tongue is clarified from the analysis results of these two facts.

1) Two facts

a. Among the fulcrum area mentioned above, the formation of physiological factor of among those who have common specific fulcrum area, even if the sleeping posture is different, the posture is influenced by the common specific area common among these people.

b. Within the mouth during ones sleep, by the contact and stabilization act of the tongue, the tongue exerts continuous pressure where it makes contact. This pressure during ones growth period enables growth of the jawbones, and as the jawbones are developed, it also allows the tongue to develop, and both continue to grow in this process, which is continued.

2) Analysis result: The formation (occlusion formation) of specific physiological gene that is influenced by the specific fulcrum area mentioned above is caused by the strong directional pressure voluntarily exerted by the tongue's “contact and stabilization act” during one's growth period. During ones sleep in growth period, when the contact and stabilization act of the tongue is occurring, there is continuous strong directional pressure exerted at the specific portion of the tongue.

(6) The origin of “natural instinctive genes” is clarified by the investigations of subjects in the following method. The subjects are part of the 102 Japanese subjects and their mother in the earlier investigation. Also, 20 children above 6 years old in their growth period and their mothers or both parents have been added. The details of investigation done to these children are the same details performed to the matured adults mentioned earlier. The investigation done to the mothers is regarding the nursing method of the infant during the first 90 days after birth by the mother or others, and also any nose infections by the child during this period.

(7) Within the character peculiar to Homo sapiens, the basis for the conclusion that the head and neck is the first function that is established among all function during ones repose during sleep is based on the analysis results of the following two facts.

1) The two facts clarified from the analysis results of 102 subjects

#1. For those whose fulcrum area is located at the outer portion of the center of the forehead, at the front part of the head (upper portion of the center of the forehead), or at the lower jaw (including the chin), they can sleep facing down. However, for those who do not, they cannot sleep facing down. However, for those whose fulcrum area is located at the outer portion of the center of the forehead and front part of the head (upper portion of the center of the forehead), it is simply fulcrum area without any function.

#2 For those whose fulcrum area at the rear of the head where it includes the central portion, these people always turn their neck and body together when they confirm traffic when crossing the street. They sleep facing up, constantly facing the front, and have horseshoe shape upper teeth arch.

2) Analysis result: From these two facts, it can be analyzed that the repose mechanism during sleep (excluding the head and neck portion) is reflective and developed from the repose of the head and neck during sleep. The head and neck is the first repose that is developed among the function of repose of the head and neck during sleep.

(8) The analysis of 16 specific portions that cause the specific tooth to become small within the fulcrum area located at the side of the neck that cause 16 various tooth to become small is as follows:

1) Select specific tooth

2) For those whose specific teeth are small, investigate the shape of fulcrum area located at the side portion of the neck, and analyze in this area in the following manner. (Select those with few specific small teeth. However, if the subject has other small teeth then investigate and analyze these teeth also)

#1. Determine if there is a commonality between the positions of the fulcrum areas that these subjects have.

#2. Compare the right and left results of these teeth. Further analyze the left and right area shape. Analyze these data and determine its position.

#3. Continue investigation with all 16 specific teeth.

2) Based on the results of (1) above, the position and shape of the “16 specific portions that cause the teeth to become small” can be identified and develop schematic diagram based on these data.

3) Furthermore, in order to confirm accuracy of schematic diagram developed in (2) above and to further develop an accurate schematic diagram, perform analysis of the form of fulcrum area that is positioned at the side of the neck for those with insufficient teeth in the following manner.

#1. Select subject where specific teeth is missing (insufficient tooth/teeth)

#2. Apply pressure with fingertip to various portions of the fulcrum area at the side of the neck, and mark areas in the diagram (2) above where the subject felt the pressure uncomfortable. Perform this for all 16 various teeth.

#3. Revise the schematic diagram of this fulcrum area drawn in (2)

The reason of investigating those with insufficient teeth is because these people extremely resist pressure that is applied to specific portions of this fulcrum area.

If the insufficient tooth is the upper right canine, then this person dislikes pressure applied to the specific portion positioned within the fulcrum area positioned at the right side portion of the neck that makes the upper canines small. (See FIG. 16, x-2 and x-3). If the insufficient teeth are at the lower central incisors, then this person dislikes pressure applied to the specific portion positioned within the fulcrum area positioned at the right side portion of the neck, which makes the lower middle incisors small (the same is applies to the left side).

(However, the author was not able to collect data for those whose first large molar and second large molar is insufficient teeth)

4) As a result, I was able to complete an accurate systematic diagram of the 32 specific fulcrum areas that makes 32 specific teeth small that is located within the fulcrum area located at the side of the neck. However, the accurate system diagram of the 20 specific fulcrum area that causes the 20 primary specific teeth to be small is clarified through the cause and effect of large specific teeth (of the primary teeth) that causes large permanent teeth that grows in the same area.

(3) Redraw the materials of the subject that are obtained in (2) on FIG. 16 that is prepared in (1).

Create diagrams of individual subject's “area which contacts and stabilizes to the pillow by the strong pressure”.

If the subject head is transformed, the unusual shape must be recorded on these diagrams.

However, in case of infant who have not growth all of the teeth yet, or in case of adults who have lost many or all natural teeth or have many artificial teeth, when one can not clarify their “area which contacts and stabilizes to the pillow by directional strong pressure”, it is possible to create the subject's peculiar diagrams in the following way.

#1. Let a subject sit on a chair in a relaxed posture, and clasp his hands on the head or the head and neck. Then let a subject lie down, and perform the same act by the various postures.

#2. An experimenter confirms in what port of the head or neck the subject applies strong pressure by act in (#1), and redraw it on FIG. 16.

#3. Using the details obtained in (#2) as reference materials, apply strong directional pressure to the subject's 15 various fulcrum area at the head/neck portion and behind the shoulders with whole or part (finger, palm, or lower palm) of the hand. Observe the reaction of the subject, and mark where the subject felt comfortable with a colored pen onto FIG. 16. The areas where the subject felt comfortable are the fulcrum areas, and the areas where he felt uncomfortable are not fulcrum areas, but assisting fulcrum areas. In case of growing children, their response is evident.

#4. An experimenter asks if the subject has ever had a stinging feeling at the hand(s) or arm(s) when he woke up in the morning.

In case of yes, the experimenter must ask his conditions. Because it means that the subject must always insert his hand(s) or arm(s) between the head and neck, and the pillow. In case of a subject who inserts his hand(s) or arm(s) between the head and neck and the pillow, and who directly applies directional strong pressure during sleep, an experimenter must redraw the conditions on FIG. 16. Also an experimenter must investigate whether the rear part of the subject's head has been transformed or not. If transformed, an experimenter must record the conditions on FIG. 16.

(4) Using the data gathered in (3) regarding the subject's unique “area contact with strong pressure is made with a pillow” as a fundamental material, compare this with the previous diagrams (FIG. 1 to FIG. 17). Follow the explanations of each finger, and accurately clarify the characteristics of one's pillow (height, material, size, hardness and shape) that allows one to sleep comfortable.

(5) Use the results of (4) as judgment materials to manufacture one's proper pillow with scientific grounds that everyone can have a restful and comfortable sleep.

EXECUTION EXAMPLE

As an example, let me take up the subject A who has his own pillow the characteristics for a restful and restorative sleep. In this case, his head form will be reference data.

Reference Data

1) Subject A's characteristics of occlusion

#1. Vertical overlap of upper front teeth—extremely shallow (however, the right incisors and canine are edge-to-edge bite).

#2. Horizontal overlap of upper front teeth—none

#3. The size of teeth—large or relatively large (however, the left and right upper and lower canine are small, and the left and right lower central incisors and lower second large molars are relatively small)

a. Upper right canine 7.0 mm>upper left canine 6.6 mm

b. Lower right central incisor 5.1 mm<lower left central incisor 5.6 mm

c. Lower right second large molar 10.8 mm×10.5 mm<lower left second large molar 11.4 mm×10.6 mm

#4. Length of upper front teeth—extremely long

#5. Shape of molars—biting surface is extremely flat

#6. Teeth arrangement—proportioned

#7. Size of upper teeth arch and its shape—relatively large and horse-shoe shape

#8. Overlap of molars—normal

#9. Overlap of front teeth—normal

#10. Slant of front teeth towards the lips/tongue—both upper and lower teeth is vertical

2) Form of head of the Subject A

The part of fulcrum area at the upper part of the rear of the head—flat in the large part

The area of fulcrum area at the upper part of the side of the head (left and right)—flat in the relatively large part

(1) Please create a teeth model of unique occlusion of the Subject A. And prepare fulcrum area diagram that shows 15 fulcrum areas which exist like a mosaic at the head and neck portion, and at the rear of the shoulder that causes his unique occlusion due to strong constant directional pressure applied during his growth period, and diagram that shows fulcrum area divided into 16 areas (FIG. 16).

(2) Clarify the Subject A's unique “area where contact with strong pressure is made a pillow” in the following manner, from the characteristic of the occlusion and the form of the Subject A.

1. From the characteristics of the vertical overlap of upper front teeth and upper teeth arch shape of Subject A, it can be clarified that, of his fulcrum areas at the rear portion of the head (upper rear portion of the head, lower part of the upper rear of the head, above and at the protuberantia occipitalis ext.) and above the vertebrae cervicales VII, he has the followings.

#1. Fulcrum area at the top portion of his rear head (central portion is included)

#2. Fulcrum area just above the vertebrae cervicales VII (right side)

2. From the Subject A's characteristics of the horizontal overlap of the upper front teeth and degrees of slant of the front teeth towards the tongue and lips, it can be clarified that he breathes constantly through the nose during sleep, and perform “contact and stabilization act of the tongue” under Type RT-BN.

3. From the size and characteristics of the Subject A's teeth, the following things can be clarified.

#1. From the Subject A's characteristics of teeth size (large teeth are many and smallteeth are few), he has fulcrum area at the side of the neck in a narrow range, and put his fingers between the pillow and the head and neck.

#2. From the Subject A's characteristics of the size of the upper and lower canines in the right and left sides, it is clear that he put his fingers in a wide part within the fulcrum area located at the right side of the neck. This area causes the upper and lower right canines to become small. The subject A also puts his fingers in a wide area at the left side of the neck which causes the upper and lower left canine to become small. (See FIG. 16: x-2 and x-3)

However, it can be concluded that the size of the right and left area for Subject A is different as follows. This is confirmed from the data where his upper right canine (7.0 mm) is larger than his upper left canine (6.6 mm) and his lower right canine (6.3 mm) is larger than his lower left canine (6.0 mm).

a. In the case of subject A, the wideness of area that causes the upper right canine to be small is narrower than the area that causes the upper left canine small.

a. In the case of the Subject A, the wideness of area which causes the upper right canine to become small is narrower than that which causes the upper left canine to become small.

b. In the case of the Subject A, the area which causes the lower right canine to become small is narrow than that which causes lower left canine small.

#3. From the Subject A's characteristics of the size of the lower left and right central incisors, it is clear that he put his fingers in a relatively wide area within the fulcrum area located at the left and right side of the neck which causes the lower central incisors to become small. However, his difference of the size of the lower right central incisor (5.6 mm) and that of the lower left central incisor (5.1 mm) shows that the size of the part to make the lower right central incisor smaller than the left, on the both sides. In the case of the Subject A, the area which causes the lower right central incisor to become smaller than the right.

#4. From the Subject A's characteristics of the size of the lower second large molars, on the right and sides, it is clear that he puts his fingers in a relatively wide area within the fulcrum area located at the right side of the neck which causes the lower right second molar to be small and the left side of the neck that causes the left lower second large molar to become small, on the right and left sides. However, it can be concluded that his size is different in the in the right and left areas. This is confirmed from the data that the lower second large molar in the right (10.8 mm×10.5 mm) smaller than that in the left (11.4 mm×10.6 mm).

In his case, the wideness of area which causes the lower right second large molar small is wider than that which causes the lower left second molar small.

4. From the Subject A's length of upper anterior teeth, it means that he does not have fulcrum area located at the upper part of the neck.

5. From the Subject A's shape of molars, it is clear that he does not have fulcrum area located at the jaw.

6. From the Subject A's condition of the teeth proportion and shape of upper teeth arch, it is clear that he does not have fulcrum area located at the side of the head.

7. From the Subject A's shape of upper teeth arch, it is clear that he does not have fulcrum area located at the upper rear portion of the ear. And from this arch shape, it is clear that he sleeps facing up and forward.

8. From the Subject A's size of the upper teeth arch, it is clear that he has fulcrum area at the upper side part of the head in a relatively wide area.

9. From the Subject A's overlap of molars, it is clear that he does not have fulcrum area located at the side of the chin.

10. From the Subject A's overlap of front teeth of Subject A, it is clear that he does not have fulcrum area located at the center of the neck.

11. From the Subject A's degree of slant to the tongue or lips of the front teeth, it is clear that he does not have fulcrum area in the back of the shoulders and at the side part of the base of the neck.

(3) Redraw the the analysis results of (2) and the shape of his skull on FIG. 16 prepared in (1), with a different colored pen. (FIG. 19)

(4) From the figure of the Subject A's proper “area of the pillow in which strong directional pressure contacts and stabilize” created in (3), clarify the characteristics of pillow which allows the Subject to have a restful and restorative sleep. The method is as follows.

1. Height of Pillow

From the Subject A's “fulcrum area located at the upper part of the rear head and at the upper part of the side of the head”, it can be clarified that he uses a pillow that is extremely low.

2. Material of Pillow

Since the Subject A does not have fulcrum area at the side of the base-neck, and at the side of the chin and at the jaw, it can be clarified that it is necessary for him to use a immobile pillow made of unchangeable materials.

3. Size of Pillow

#1. From the Subject A's whole picture of “area which contacts a pillow with a strong pressure”, it can be clarified that he uses a relatively small pillow. Also, from this wholepicture, it is known that he can sleep facing up and facing side, but cannot sleep facing down.

#2. Since he does not have fulcrum area at the back of shoulders, it can be clarified that the vertical width of the pillow is from the fulcrum area at the upper portion of the rear of the head to immediately above the vertebrae cervicales VII.

#3. Since he puts his fingers at the fulcrum area of the side neck, it can be clarified that width of the pillow is wide enough for him to put his hand on the pillow.

4. Hardness of Pillow

#1. From the Subject A's fulcrum area at the upper portion of the rear head and the shape of the skull, it can be clarified that he uses pillow whose portion is extremely hard for him to put his rear head.

#2. Since he puts his fingers at the fulcrum area of the side—neck, it can be clarified that the head must be hard enough for him not to be painful to the hards.

5. Shape of Pillow

#1. From the form of fulcrum area located at the side of the neck, it can be clarified that the shape of the Subject A's pillow must be of a shape for him to be able to put his fingers from the pillow. However, when the Subject A gets his hands disordered, it is necessary for the shape of pillow to be with a finger-shaped cloth bag, to put his fingers. This finger-shaped cloth bag must be the same shape of the individual's fingers (length, thickness and form). (FIG. 18)

#2. Since the Subject A does not have fulcrum area at the center of the neck, it can be clarified that his pillow must be of a shape not to contact the central portion of his neck.

#3. Since the Subject A has fulcrum area only the right side just above the vertebrae cervicales VII, it can be clarified that his pillow must be of a shape for him to put his fingers from it.

(5) From the analysis result of (4) for the Subject A, let me a final judgment regarding the characteristics of the pillow for restful and restorative sleep for him and how to manufacture.

A. The Subject A's individual pillow with characteristics for restful and restorative sleep which is needed when healthy.

1) Whole size

#1. The vertical length is from the fulcrum area at the upper part of his rear head to the vertebrae cervicales VII.

#2. The width is enough to put his hands on it.

2) Characteristic of the rear portion of the head

#1. This portion is extremely low (around 1 cm).

#2. This portion is of extremely hard material.

From #1 and #2, this portion is made of some ropes around 1 cm in diameter glued together and covered with towel.

3) The nature of this portion of the neck

#1. Though the form of this portion is bulged, it does not contact his neck portion.

This portion of a form where he can put his figures at the side of the neck, when he puts his hand at the outer portion of this area. The base material is the same as used in the rear head.

#2. The material of this portion must be cotton that is immobile and difficult to transform, and not painful when he puts his hand on this portion.

B. In the case of the Subject A's individual pillow with characteristics for restful and restorative sleep which is needed when he gets his hand disordered.

Manufacture a pillow on the basis of the Subject A's pillow, by sewing up the finger-shaped cloth bag to the pillow at the particular point where the Subject A exserts strong directional pressure with his fingers. The finger-shaped bag to sewn onto the particular portion is made in the way that reflects the form of his particular finger(s) and the touching angle of particular portion on the neck. The material to be put into the finger-shaped bag must also reflect the hardness of the Subject A's finger.

The possibility of use in industry

If one follows this method to realize this invention, it is possible for everyone to manufacture one's proper pillow with the characteristics that give comfortable sleep on the principle of observing one's occlusion. I believe the manufacture of one's proper pillow of precisely based on the scientific principle, so manufacturers and sales dealers can confidently contribute to the public.

SUMMARY DOCUMENT

Starting from the observation of one's occlusion, we have finished the clarification of the characteristics of one's pillow (height, hardness, material, size and shape) for one's restful and restorative sleep and the manufacturing method of one's pillow, based on the scientific grounds.

Using the relationship diagrams (FIG. 1 to 17) that explain the discovery of the development of one's occlusion and the characteristics of pillow that allows restful and restorative sleep and the proper growth by using one's pillow in the sleeping time as analysis material, one can analyze the area of contact and stabilization with pillow, and create diagram of ones unique area where contact with strong pressure is made with a pillow. By using one's unique diagram as foundamental material, one can compare it with the previous diagrams (FIG. 1 to 17). Please follow explanations for each figure and manufacture a pillow with characteristics in accordance with these explanations.
