In brief: Mask is best.
The CPAP or BiPAP mask is the best way to treat it.
There are bite plates and nose inserts and surgical procedures that exist, but the mask is the best. Weight loss cures it if you're significantly overweight.

There are forms of surgery that have varying degrees of success. The are mandibular advancing devices.
