No test.: Just educated assessment based on history provided and examination.

Exact year, No.: By looking on a radiographic image (x-ray) to see how the bone at the extraction site has healed a dentist could probably tell you of the extraction was within the last few months, the last 2-3 years, or a longer time ago. There is no test that will tell you exact year or if the cause was drug related. For these answers we need to ask the patient.
