Can dental bridges move? (photo)

I grind my teeth occasionally would that make a tooth tuck under the next one, if one is part of a bridge?

Can dental bridges move?

It is possible for the teeth that the bridge sits on to move. The teeth may be loosing bone due to gum disease causing the teeth to become mobile. Or the bridge itself may have lost some cement and be loose from the teeth. In addition the tooth next to the bridge may be the one moving due to a problem with your bite. The best approach is to see a dentist right away before the situation gets any worse.
