Get sleep study: Would go to a sleep study center to be evaluated. They can answer your question.

Sleep Study: You should get a sleep study done either at a sleep study center(best) or have your doctor order at home sleep study (as long as it has some form of positional monitoring) to get an accurate diagnosis first. If no sleep apnea your dentist can fabricate a variety of oral devices that can help with your snoring.
