Going through something similar right now. Initial extractions and bone implant was in 2/09. The post (root) was implanted 1/10. This weekend I go to make sure the bone is solid so I can get my permanent implant. I can't wait because this "flipper" drives me nuts. Feels like peanut butter on the roof of my mouth all the time.
