Implant too close to adjacent tooth: how best to proceed?

Last Updated May 03, 2019

I installed this implant in #13 area [maxillary left second premolar; 25] one week ago. The surgical procedure went well and healing appears to be proceeding uneventfully. I am however concerned that the implant is too close to #12 [maxillary left first premolar; 24]. Any recommendations as to how I should proceed. Would there be any point to going in and seeing if I could torque out the implant? Should I wait and continue to observe?
