Peri-Implant Mucosal Creeping: Two Case Reports

Carlos Parra, DDS/Diego Capri, DDS


PMID: 29447316
DOI: 10.11607/prd.3013

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.
