Oral rehabilitation consists of dental and esthetic prosthetic treatments that aim to recover or improve the oral health of patient, when it is affected. Currently, partially edentulous patients have a very active social life and thus they should feel safe with their prostheses. Aiming at the correct establishment of balance of the stomatognathic system, restoring function and esthetics, preserving the remaining structures and replacing lost structures, with reversibility and good cost/benefit, the removable partial dentures favorably rehabilitate partially edentulous patients within the context of Brazilian health. In this case report, removable partial dentures in the upper and lower arches were made with retention on spherical retainers (O'rings) in the remaining dental roots, which allowed the active utilization of these roots as abutments of partial dentures, minimizing the torque on teeth that could lead to loss of insertion and consequent mobility. The esthetic gain achieved with the use of these retainers should also be highlighted, due to elimination of extracoronal clamps on anterior teeth. The utilization of dental roots with retention devices proved to be an effective device to increase the retention and stability of prostheses, emphasizing the esthetic benefit in cases of removable partial dentures that involve the anterior region.
