Does anyone have any ideas about how to get my autistic 5 1/2 year old to allow me to brush his teeth. I have to man handle him to brush his teeth. His dentist gave me blocks to put in his mouth so I don't get bite. We have tries eveything, I can't think of any other way but forcing him.

I have tried every different kind of Kids tooth paste.
