It is difficult to say as it depends where the decay is and whether the dentist is able to access it without removing the bridge.  Bridges are very hard to remove and often have to be drilled off which destroys them.

Many dental questions are tough ones to answer without examining the patient or their x-rays.  Some decay under bridges can be treated without removing the bridge.  It depends how deep it is and where it's located.
