What treatment is available to stop snoring?

Avoiding alcoholic beverages, tranquilizers, sleeping pills, and antihistamines before retiring; Exercise the throat, the tongue, and the jaw muscles so the breathing passage will widen and stay open when you sleep. Sleeping prone or on one's side; or raising the head of the bed may help. Special antisnoring pillows are no more effective than regular pillows or raising the head of the bed. The various devices promoted to reduce snoring usually work well only in mild cases and do not relieve sleep apnea. Nasal infections and allergies should be treated. Use CPAP mask (a device you wear on the nose while sleeping to decrease snoring and sleep apnea). Use dental appliances to prevent tongue from falling back. For heavy snoring, surgically correcting obstructive conditions in the nose, pharynx, or uvula (eg, by laser-assisted uvulopalatoplasty) may be the only solution if treatment is needed.
