While creeping attachment in natural teeth has been reported in the literature for decades, the same phenomenon around dental implants is a new concept. This article describes two implant cases treated with free gingival autograft with follow-up at 18 and 30 months. Progressive coronal creeping of the mucosal margin was observed covering the implant and abutment surfaces postoperatively. This report demonstrates that mucosal creeping around implants may occur after peri-implant plastic surgical procedures, further improving the final outcomes of therapy.
