My long nightmare/story!

How long can you have them in your mouth before the teeth should be fitted? I'm being told they should be done sooner rather than later yet they left my mouth like this since may (when the implants were put in) only now do they say this. I had sort of temps in for 2+half wks but insisted they get taken out as wasn't happy with them+they were giving me trouble,it was complete agony/torture having them screwed back on (the caps) I'm not even sure I can go back there. 🙁
