Prof. Miguel Peñarrocha

Prof. Miguel Peñarrocha finished the degree in medicine and surgery in 1979, then he specialized in stomatology and later in neurology. He studied orofacial pain for ten years and taught medicine. Later, he started with surgery and oral implantology. He is a Full Professor of Oral Surgery at the University of Valencia, Spain.

The areas he has worked in throughout his life have been orofacial pain, extraction of impacted teeth, local anesthesia, periapical surgery, and oral implantology. Currently, he has a greater focus on periapical surgery (preserving teeth at a time when our profession is tending towards extraction and society does not value natural teeth and overestimates implants) and implantology, especially implants in the case of severe maxillary atrophy and immediate loading.
