tortoise shell repair

I have an antique tortoise shell box with some pieces have detatched. I have all the pieces, but some of them are bowed or slightly bent. Does any one know how to safely flatten these pieces and what type of glue is suitable for reattaching them? What is the best way to clean old glue residue from the box and the remaining tortoise shell? Thanks for helping
