Brief Answer: Yes,there is treatment for snorring Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX Nice to meet you here, Yes, there is treatment for snoring, but first we have to look into the exact cause for your snoring and proceed for the treatment. First of all we I advise you to make an investigation named POLYSOMNOGRAPHY, (to study your sleep apnoea [cessation of airflow during sleep preventing air from entering the lungs caused by any obstruction]. In most of cases treating the cause [like sleep apnoea, Obesity, avoiding excess alcohol in night] is enough to get rid of snoring. In case of recurrence, minor laser surgical measures like uvulopalatoplasty can give an acceptable results. Your treating surgeon guide you further if you need one. Hope helped your query, Take care.
