In brief: Simple tips

Sleep on your side, lose weight, dont drink alcohol at night.
If you have trouble breathing through your nose try a salt water rinse or even try a "breathe right strip". However most patients find that although the above does help it is not enough. If you snore and have difficulty with daytime sleepiness, morning headache, difficulty concentrating, you should be evaluated by an md for sleep apnea!

In brief: Taking a chance

If you go and purchase an anti-snoring device otc or on the web, you may be jeopardizing your health.
These products may seem to work, but the mouthpieces are non- adjustible and the other products may mask a more alarming form of sleep apnea. You should consider seeing your doctor for a sleep study and then get options- cpap, custom made oral appliance, surgery, lifestyle changes, etc.

In brief: Sleep on your side

You can try simple things like sleeping on your side, and avoiding excess alcohol intake before sleep.
Confirm with your md that you don't have sleep apnea, and if not, you can speak to your dentist about making an oral appliance that can often reduce or eliminate snoring.
