The Family Handyman
After your next appointment, ask your dentist for a used tooth scaler or two. Dentists usually toss these tools just when they’re perfect for picky jobs like prying dried glue and paint stripper from project crevices. They’re also great for inserting glue and wood filler. Use them once and you’ll never completely dread your next checkup. Thanks to furnituremaker Graham McCulloch for this sharp tip!
