is this normal?

I feel as though my front tooth has moved forward on its own. but yet my teeth beside it still have spaces between them so those teeth did not push it. Can teeth just move on their own?

Yes, they can.  They can shift for a variety of reasons.  I had a tooth shift forward a bit due to a cyst on the root.

will it continue to move forward on its own? i already have a overbite. last thing i need is this tooth moving even more. its depressing me and im so worried :(

it will most likely keep moving in the same direction. The cause is probably your bite, periodontal involvement (bone loss) or both. You should see an orthodontist or a periodontist to get you on the way towards addressing the problem.

Is it common for a dentist to tell you it's must that you get your tooth pulled because of bone loss, instead of trying to save the tooth.
