Sleep apnea: Needs to first be ruled out by a sleep specialist. If there is no sleep apnea there are various minor surgical procedures that can be done to stiffen the soft palate and/or reduce the turbulence in the airway that causes the noise in snoring. If you wish to avoid surgery, a dental appliance that projects the lower jaw forward to open the airway is helpful. A "sleep dentist" is familiar with these.

Snoring: Several possibilities:
some people only snore if they sleep on their back, so try avoiding that.
See an ear nose ; throat specialist to evaluate your tonsils, adenoids and sinus
wear a custom made dental device that holds your jaw forward while you sleep thereby increasing the airway.

Sleep study : Snoring is annoying and may harm your sleep and the sleep of whomever shares your bed or even people in other areas of your home. Snoring can make relationships stressful, but snoring can also be the first sign of sleep apnea, a much more serious health problem. Snoring is considered pathology and sleep study is warranted.
