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. He has other sensory issues, Like brushing his hair, hair cut, washing his hair. He gags and makes himself throw up every time I brush his teeth. I feel like what is the point. I have tried every different kind of Kids tooth paste.
