The conservation of residual roots, when their intrinsic and extrinsic values allow it, and their use as supports of additional means of retention greatly improve prosthetic balance. However, this therapeutic option requires a rigorous implementation and a correct choice of the retention systems better suited to the clinical situation.

This paper aims to present, through two clinical cases, interests of natural roots’ exploitation in the treatment of a large edentulous ridge and to describe the implementation of the axial attachment device.
