Multiple options: Snoring can be caused by turbulent airflow through the nose or mouth. It can be managed as easily not sleeping on your back in some cases. Weight loss is frequently beneficial as well, if you are overweight. Other options include a dental appliance and a variety of surgeries. You should seek consultation with your physician or dentist. They should rule out sleep apnea first.

Oral Appliance : There are a number of oral appliances made by your dentist that pull the tongue and jaw forward to treat snoring and/or sleep apnea. You should discuss the snoring with your primary md first and get screened for sleep apnea.
