Mandibular left second molar tipping: how should I manage this?

I treatment planned a patient for extraction of #19 [mandibular left first molar; 36] and surgical installation of an implant to replace the tooth. 12 weeks after extraction I installed a 5x10mm implant fixture without complications (1st radiograph). 16 weeks after surgical installation, I performed the Stage 2 uncovery surgery and found that #18 [mandibular left second molar; 37] had tipped mesially into the space for #19 reducing the mesial-distal space available for the implant crown. How should I manage this?
