I floss and brush her teeth this way and am usually able to do a pretty good job if she doesn't feel like chewing on the toothbrush. I kind of hold her mouth open if I need to
This is what I used to do with ds and he would put up a fight almost every time, but now at three he opens up nicely and lets me brush almost eveytime. No harm done, it seems.
