    What are the best options for snoring?

    My husband snores very loudly everynight, he has seen an ent and the only suggestion was for the uvulvoplasty (which sounded quite horrific) he resorted to several different dental appliances which did nothing but damage his teeth. I just saw a program on the coblation tongue reduction could this help? He does not have sleep apnea, any advice appreciated!

    An Orofacial Myology exercise program may benefit your husband. Many snoring patients note benefits quite quickly if doing exercises regularly. Exercises target muscles in the back of tongue/throat/nose region of the mouth. There are a couple of very good evidenced based studies to support this advice.
