Is it possible to change the Facebook Comments assotiation URL somehow?

We have recently changed our URL scheme of some pages on our site to gain a little SEO boost. For example, domain.tld/$id/slug/ -> domain.tld/$category/slug-$id/.

However the comments associated to the old URLs are now obviously not shown on the new URLs as the links are generated automatically using the new scheme.

As our site is very new, we don't have many comments yet. Obviously we would hate to lose those few comments we already have and would rather migrate their association to the new URL scheme. I haven't found such option on the Comment Moderation Tool and the comments documentation doesn't elaborate on this either. Is that possible at all?
