In Team Explorer right click the file & choose "Get Specific version"
you will be able to select the version you wish to retrieve based on Changeset number, Specific date, label, latest version & workspace version, you will need to utlize the changeset or the Date option.

In Team Explorer in:
"Documents --> Shared Documents --> Document.docx"
With right click I have the next options: (Open, Edit, Add to My Favorites, Cut, Copy, Delete, Rename, Properties)

In Solution explorer I have "Get Specific version", but in "Team Explorer" not.

What can I do?

what happens if you try get specific version from solution explorer ?
you should be presented with a dialogue allowing you to get previous versions same as from Team explorer.
by any chance if this TFS workgroup edition ?

I am not trying use "Source Control" to my documents.

I am trying use "Team Explorer --> Project --> Documents --> Shared Documents" to save my documents (in sharepoint)


I want to know if I can restore a previous version of my documents if I save in this site (in sharepoint)

Basically Not From TFS  ,these are not under source control, think of them as the project documents that are strictly utilized by sharepoint , and are not under TFS source control.
HoweverVesion Control for Sharepoint is achievablethrough shaepoint itself
