In brief: Depends how severe

You should consult with your md as snoring may be a sign of sleep apnea.
Dental devices can be very effective to control both non-apneic snoring and sleep apnea. Losing weight, avoiding alcohol or sedating medications, and getting a good nights sleep regularly all can help as well.
