Implant touching the maxillary premolar: best plan?

Last Updated December 12, 2016

I placed an implant in the maxillary first molar site. The implant is healing well and has excellent primary stability. I noticed that the implant was touching the root of the adjacent second premolar which has remained asymptomatic and has no discernible problem. Should I explant the implant? Or should I continue to observe it and the second premolar and not intervene if the signs and symptoms remain within normal limits?
