Implant fixture seems to be too close to adjacent tooth: Should I remove this fixture?

I installed an implant in #29 site [mandibular right second premolar; 45]. It is apparent from the radiograph that the implant has either penetrated the distal aspect of the root of #28 [mandibular right first premolar; 44] or maybe the implant is overlapping #28 in the radiograph. #28 does not have any symptoms and the surgical site has healed well. #29 implant also has a lingual inclination. Should I explant #29 implant at this time? Should I wait and see if symptoms develop?
