Do you mean when the roots of the molars go up into the skull?
I know a bit about it, because my rabbit has dental problems so Ive done some research.
As rabbits get older, their bones get more frail, and their teeth get looser. The molar roots dont acually grow into the scull, but they are pushed up there when the bun chews sicne the teeth arent as stable as they used to be, if that makes sense.
Their eye is directly above their molars, so the molar roots can block their tear ducts if they are puched up far enough... So a symptom of this problem is runny eyes. You need X-rays to diagnose it.
I hope I answered your question!
