I agree that as long as your dog doesn't seem to mind having their mouth handled, it's usually not too bad. Payton arrived not really being thrilled with having me look at his teeth, but I kept at it until he was comfortable with it (it was kinda really important given he was intended to be a confo dog.) Pepper and Auggie both had their mouths handled by Auggie's breeder so no problems there.

If you ask Auggie if he wants to have his teeth brushed he'll go running to the bathroom in excitement. I was really good about it when he was younger but slowly started to get out of the habit. We use the peanut butter enzymatic toothpaste, or if I want to disinfect (like after Auggie eats poop) I use baking soda and hydrogen peroxide.

Payton and Pepper are less thrilled about it but they will both quite politely sit and let me both scale their teeth and brush 'em. I would try some PB or chicken flavoured toothpaste first and see how that goes.
