Not with normal bridges! Your natural  teeth have tiny ligaments by which thy are fixed to bone so they move slightly inside the bone while chewing. Implants are surrounded directly by bone and should not move when we chew. So when a bridge connects the tooth and implant, the tooth would keep moving making the bridge and implant move too. Eventually the implant may fail and would come out. Youd rather have two implants. It is done at times with modifications but not highly recommended.  Kindly talk to your dentist about options

Joining an implant and tooth is possible in very specific situations, but it's best to put 2 implants instead.
