It is possible but the longevity of such a procedure will surely be less as compared to a bridge on two implants or on two teeth. In case of a bridge over one natural tooth and one implant, the implant may become loose over time. The time and money required thereafter would definitely be an add on. If space allows it is recommended to put an implant per tooth in a place where 2 adjacent teeth are missing. This may save both time and money in the future. Hope this helps.

tooth has got periodontal ligament around it which result in some amount of micro movement, which is not possible in case of an implant. so there is a chance of failure of implant because of this micro movement

It is not advised to do a bridge over a natural tooth and implant. If you go ahead and do it, it will surely fail requiring further more complicated treatment in the future.
