See dentist: See a dentist who has been trained in dental sleep medicine. He can make an oral appliance that normally stops snoring. It is normally necessary to have a sleep study first, since snoring is one of the signs of sleep apnea, a serious health problem. Sleep apnea has to be ruled out first. If you do have sleep apnea, many times an oral appliance can be used to treat it.

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.
