Implant is too close to neighboring tooth?

Today I placed implants, and one of them (position of 20) seems quite close to 21. Before going to the surgery I planed with CT(from X-ray center), where and how to put. But right after the surgery, I could only take PA, because there is no CT in the clinic where I placed the implants. I could take at least small x ray between 20 and 21 to make sure... but yeah, I missed it. After seeing the PA, I assumed that there is at least 1.5 mm distance between 21 and 20's implant. But hours to hour, I am pondering whether they are in contact or not. I hope there won't be any symptoms, but if there will be, I would consider explanting asap. Thoughts? Thanks in advance for your opinions.
