Hi to all those techs out there who work with teeth or parts of-

Can you help?
I am working with small pieces of dentine that are cutting OK, but the
dentine is curling out of the wax as I try to cut a section. I have tried
many different ideas, but maybe someone out in Histoland has a idea or a
hint that may solve the curling.
I have tried - Tissue-Tek polymer wax
	     - beeswax
	     - mixture of tissue tek and beeswax
	     - vacuum
	     - double embedding
