A 66-year-old male asked:
can a radiograph still show the presence of placed bone grafting material into socket following tooth extraction one year earlier with no implant?

Probably not: After a year's time, the grafting material would have been resorbed and replaced by your own, living bone. In many instances the outline of the tooth socket can still be seen. The density of the new bone and the older, surrounding bone would be about the same.
