Snoring Directory

Snoring can point to other, serious medical problems, such as obstructive sleep apnea. Treatment includes losing weight, sleeping on one's side, and using decongestants or nasal steroid sprays before sleep. A device that pushes the jaw and tongue forward can be placed in the mouth to facilitate breathing, and a machine that provides a treatment called continuous positive airway pressure, or CPAP, can also open the airway.
