Replacing 35 year old implant. Can the top be re-implanted? (Photo)

A 35 year implant came out. The manufacturer is not known to me, also the dentist is no longer around. Can the top be replanted, it's in good shape. Or is there any chance for a new implant in that spot?

Unfortunately without an X-ray to evaluate bone level and length of the implant it is very difficult to give you accurate advice.
