Found leak now the tile

My question is now that I have found and fixed the leak should I pull up the effected ceramic tiles that had water seeping through the grout or just clean out the grout and let dry and then replace grout? I am thinking I should go ahead and pull up tiles and let dry.

If the tile is set over concrete or cement backer---you may be all right to let it dry out.

Is there a reason to rip out the tile right away? If not--wait and see--
