Nasal dilators are thin, flexible strips that increase airflow as you sleep, which may lessen snoring. They are affordable and can be bought over the counter, in pharmacies, and online.

External dilators pull outward to open the passageways after adhering to the exterior of the nose. Internal dilators work from the inside out by pushing outward rather than inward. While both kinds lessen snoring, internal dilators usually work better.

Anti-snoring mouthpieces are dental devices that can help reduce snoring by adjusting the lower jaw and holding the tongue in place. These mouthpieces come in two varieties: Mandabular Advance Devices (MADs) and Tongue Retaining Devices (TRDs).

A study found that this tongue-retaining device reduced snoring tensity by 68%. These devices can also help improve sleep apnea, but they should not be self-diagnosed or self-treated.

A palate implant is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that tightens the soft palate. Studies reveal that for some people, the implants greatly reduce snoring. They may help some people with their snoring and be recommended as a treatment for obstructive sleep apnea.

Somnoplasty removes tissue from the uvula and stiffens the soft palate using radio waves. Research shows it's effective in reducing snoring in some people, but not as effectively as palatal implants.
