When my daughter was that age, I literally had to hold her down and pry her mouth open. My dentist said he had to do the same thing with his kids. But I was determined to keep her teeth perfect, since a friend of mine has a son who needed ALL of his teeth removed when he was 3, because she let them all rot through. They get used to it eventually and stop fighting it.
