Many treatments are available for snoring
and what is most effective depends on the severity and cause of your snoring. Sometimes,
simply losing weight or treating nasal allergies is effective. Surgery for the upper airway
can be very effective as can appliances that are placed in the mouth and worn during sleep.
Breath Right nasal strips are bandage-like devices worn on the outside of the nose that
spread the nostrils and can reduce or eliminate snoring. A new device called Theravent is
also a bandage-like device but goes a step further by including small valves that produce
positive airway pressure inside the nose and keep the airway open. Hello. I’m Doctor Ronald Popper, thanks for
