If it's Just snoring: See your dentist for an oral appliance that advances the position of your lower jaw or the aveo tsd (moves tongue forward) to open the air passage to reduce or eliminate snoring. Note, often moderate or greater weight loss is the best treatment for snoring reduction as well as overall health improvement. If overweight, consider take shape for life (easy to do, lose 2 - 5 lbs per week).
