Snoring treatment: isn't just a nighttime inconvenience; it can be a serious health issue. Oral Appliance Therapy is cost effective, easy to use, has a warranty and is recommended treatment for snoring by the American Academy of Sleep. See your dentist for evaluation and treatment.

Snoring: The reason for the snoring needs to be determined before a fix can be identified. Sometimes a sleep study is needed for this reason.

R/O OSA: OSA can be suggested by history and physical. Excess snoring/daytime sleepiness/apneic episodes/ aM headaches. And the Exam obesity/small oral airway/collar size>18. The definitive test is a PSG with split night/CPAP titration. I would request copy of sleep study and get a second opinion if you are not satisfied with the options. You are young CPAP can be difficult to tolerate. ENT FOR UPP EVAL.
