  Try adding 1 mL of Elmer's white glue in your regular 2-liter capacity round
  water bath which will be equivalent to a 0.05% solution, approx.
  You could even add some weight over the back of the slide with the section
  over a flat plastic surface. You should cover the plastic surface with paraffin oil
  (= mineral oil) to avoid the section to adhere to the plastic.
   As weight you could use some lead "sinkers", the ones used to sink the fishing lines.

  I just did serial sections through a decaled, paraffin embedded tooth.
I had trouble keeping sections stained with H & E on "plus" slides and they
often curled up at the edges and folded.

Any advice on how to deal with the ones cut and/or future teeth?
