German term or phrase: verbacken
Die prothetische Wertigkeit eines Zahnes hängt vor allem ab von/vom: Lockerungsgrad, der Vitalität (sensibel vs. asensibel), der Wurzelanatomie (Anzahl, Länge, Form): mehrwurzelig vs. einwurzelig, lang vs. kurz, gespreizt vs. verbacken.

This has come up before in context of erythrocytes,but I'm not sure if any of the suggested answers would fit in here.

As "gespreizt" seems to suggest separate or split, "fused root" may be a term to explore.

Example sentence(s):
  • The tooth may have separate or fused root canals
  • Ross and Evanchik19 reported that fused roots were seen in more than half of the mandibular third molars

It has to do with the tooth, mostly wisdom teeth, becoming attached to the jaw-bone, I think!!. For example:
