My 22 month old son throws a fit when i go to brush his teeth. I basically have to hold him down and force his mouth open. I hate doing this and feel really bad about it but i worry so much about his teeth. My husband had to get dentures at the age of 26 & at the age of 25 i have already had 6 back teeth pulled. I dont want my son to have to go through that so i dont know if im over reacting about his teeth or it im doing the right thing by forcing him to brush. Does anyone have an opinion or advice to give?
